Real As Me: Professional Development session

March 2 @ 9:30 AM - 4:30 PM

“Best Educational Resource” (SEL category), REVERE Award, The Association of American Publishers

Real As Me helps girls strengthen social and emotional skills such as self-awareness, building supportive relationships, and self-management so they can grow into confident young women. True stories by young women who have endured hardship and significant challenges are at the center of Real As Me. Developed in our rigorous teen writing program, the stories activate youths’ desire to discover themselves and think critically about the choices they make— whether they’re as small as what to wear or as big as how to handle an abusive relationship. The lessons help staff create supportive, safe spaces where girls can explore their strengths as young women.

Youth Communication supports program implementation of Real As Me with:
• Professional Development (one-day training)
• Coaching Sessions (two or more)
• Curriculum Guides (one for each staff member that attends training)
• Anthologies of true stories written by teens (12 per trained staff member)
