On May 15, 2019, we will embark on a crowdfunding campaign intended to finance six no-cost training sessions to three communities that research indicates would benefit from increased resilience, and, who we feel are in a position to positively impact the quality of our current and future lives. Those communities are immigrants, students, and 1st. Responders.
Children are our future. We all benefit from our future decision-makers becoming more resilient in an era where these Skills & Attitudes have not evolved as naturally as in past generations. Immigrants bring value by way of diversifying our thinking. They can have a stabilizing effect on our economy. We need to focus on what is good in them and help them to manage the adversities that brought them to us. 1st. Responders are our lifelines. They face adversity daily. We need to help them help us by providing Skills & Attitudes and support that will enable them to better manage the trauma that they encounter.

We are excited to say that we have completed the first presentation of our new Building Resilience Community Training Program. The training was arranged by Agents of Change, of Massachusetts, and hosted by the Tampa Parks & Recreation Department. This was a dynamic group that engaged with the material and readily worked to apply it to their circumstances. We could not have asked for a better first run. They provided lots of good feedback that we will incorporate into future presentations. Continue reading “Building Resilience Community Training Program”
