Challenges of Youth Conference

Keynote speaker Christian Moore will present 10 tools to help conference participants foster resilience in even the most unmotivated students. These tools work with students in one-on-one, small group, or classroom settings. Participants will gain skills to deliver the life-changing power of resilience to students of any background and learning style.

Additional topics will be covered during breakout sessions including:

  • Trauma-informed Care
  • Suicide Prevention
  • Violence Prevention
  • Bullying and Social Media Trauma

This event is a combined effort of four Sonoma County agencies including the Sonoma County Office of Education and its Board of Trustees, the Santa Rosa Violence Prevention Partnership, Community Action Partnership, and Sonoma County Behavioral Health Services.

Community organizations will also be available for agencies to learn about resources and how to connect youth to services.
