Building Hope Together - 2019 
Hope is a learned skill. It is not a feeling, but a strategy.

This day-long workshop is designed for schools and community partners-including juvenile justice, health care professionals, etc.-to learn how to create a culture of hope in their schools and surrounding communities. 


We are asking for interested organizations to send teams of 3-6 people to include principals and/or assistant principals and other organizational leaders as well as classroom teachers and "boots on the ground" folks. Parents and community partners are also encouraged to attend as part of your team. 

The research is clear; the best predictor of a high school students graduating
from college is how hopeful that student is.

(see Dr. Shane Lopez with Gallup and the Strengths Institute).

One of the areas we will discuss at this seminar will be the work in the field of neuroscience, particularly the understanding of the process of mental time travel, which is the understanding o fhow the brain reconstructs its past personal events (memory) and its relationship to the mental construction of possible future events (HOPE).Greywolf Treasure Hunters

This process has the power to divide our youth into two categories - HOPEFUL and HOPELESS. By understanding how the brain "learns" to be hopeless or hopeful, we will then share and develop further strategies that assist with this level of brain development and function.

The other area of major importance that we will cover will be how to create this climate of hopefulness in your building and community in a collective manner. If we are to foster hope in ALL students, not just SOME students, it is imperative we have a strategic plan to move from ME to WE.
