RESILIENCY TRAINING FOR STAFF

Resilient Horizons offers resiliency training for your faculty and staff.

Take the steps necessary to re-energize the environment of your school, youth organization, or faith facility.

GET UNDERWAY

Participants receive an overview of key resiliency concepts with an emphasis on five core resiliency skills. These skills serve as a modern-day “tool kit” to equip teachers and students to adapt and roll with the changes of life.

Included are specific strategies to build connections in our challenging Covid 19 world. Participants will also explore the necessary behaviors, attitudes, goals, and sense of purpose necessary to build a more resilient future.

RESILIENCY PROGRAMS FOR STUDENTS

Resilient Horizons delivers informational and training programs that instill resiliency skills in youth. We tailor our programs for all ages to meet the needs of your organization, regardless of setting – this includes schools, faith facilities, and youth gathering spots.

We offer in-person or tele-presentations as needed. As part of our training programs, we provide suggested readings, instructional videos, and resiliency themed products.

JOIN US ON THIS EXCITING JOURNEY

Resilient Horizons offers two versions of our custom program: Roll With The Changes.

Elementary School Program: targets students in grades 2-5 and uses developmentally appropriate media such as magic, music, storytelling, and puppetry to convey our five core resiliency skills.

Middle School Program: adapted to a more mature audience and includes the use of illusion, music, and real-world examples of resiliency to impart our message in an engaging format.
