Thank you for your interest in Family Transition Place's (FTP's) Youth Education Workshops for youth ages 13-17, held in partnership with the Orangeville Public Library.

FTP will be offering four in-person workshops at the Orangeville Public Library; registrants can sign up for one or all of the sessions. 

Selt Esteem & Relationships - October 18, 2021:
This workshop explores the connection between an individual’s self-esteem and the relationships they have in their life. The characteristics that would constitute a healthy and unhealthy relationship are examined along with ways to deal with unhealthy relationships in a safe and constructive manner. Self-esteem will be studied and discussed in terms of it being a protective factor for people to use as a way of making positive and healthy choices for themselves.

Self-Esteem & Social Media - November 1, 2021:
Participants will examine the impact that different forms of social media can have on their self-esteem. Potential risks of social media will be explored including poor body image, negative self-talk, and online luring.  Participants will discuss and learn about safe and healthy ways to use and enjoy social media, while also protecting themselves from the dangers of online communication.

Mental Health & Wellness - November 15, 2021:
During this workshop, participants will explore and discuss the stigma attached to mental health.  The signs and symptoms of poor mental health as well as ways to maintain and improve one’s mental wellness will also be examined. Self-care, and seeking support, will act as additional topics of conversation aimed at helping participants understand that maintaining mental health is as important and feasible as maintaining physical health.

Hope & Resiliency - November 29, 2021:
The concept of hope will be explored along with ways that the participants can build their own personal levels of resiliency.  Realistic goal setting, how to reframe setbacks and recognizing what they value in life will also be discussed.

FTP's COVID protocols will be in place for in-person workshops at the library. Participants will be expected to: answer screening questions, have their temperature checked, wear masks, and practice social distancing.
