Smart Choices, Healthy Future Workshop
National leadership expert, Nigel Wrangham, to engage 6th and 7th graders on Saturday, March 16
Your child and their friends will face many challenges as they go through middle school and transition to high school. Given today's world, some of these challenges may relate to marijuana, alcohol and other drugs. Are they ready?
Good news. Research shows that skills in anxiety reduction, social problem solving, relationships, communications and goal setting are effective in building resistance. Designed around some of these skills, this interactive workshop features presentations, exercises and discussions to support your child's smart choices.
Your child will have fun! The workshop is lead by Nigel Wrangham, a national trainer in youth engagement, prevention and leadership. Nigel works with groups of young people to help them influence policy, advocate for social change and summon the courage to act consciously from their core principles. He is known for his ability to generate engagement at every level.
The workshop is for 6th and 7th graders in the Oregon City School District.
