Understanding Challenging Behaviors

New Mentor

Youth who won’t talk. Kids who won’t sit still. Sullen, Disinterested. That’s what we see, but what does it mean? Challenging behaviors can be difficult for mentors to understand. Attending this workshop can help you stick it out through the difficult times with compassion and insight, as you learn how to be more effective.

It is recommended participants attend a Mentoring 101 session before attending Understanding Challenging Behaviors.

As community leaders and as servant leaders, we are heartbroken by the recent tragedies and know that a genuine and ongoing commitment to real change is necessary to confront and combat racism.  We stand in solidarity with our peers, our neighbors, our colleagues and our friends with an even stronger resolve to be present, to listen, to learn and to act.  If there’s one thing we’ve learned in our 25 years of serving the community, it’s this: 

We are stronger together

We are committed to actively fighting racism and to using our voices for better.  We will continue to bring strength and hope; to foster meaningful conversations around change; to deliver services that are inclusive and will support all.  We encourage you to join us and find ways to improve race relations in our community and beyond.  Let’s all work toward better – better connection, better allyship, better love for one another.  Let’s work together to make this world a better place for our kids.  Now is the time and they’re depending on us.
