Lessons and Leader Guides

Programs

We offer a variety of complete programs that include an anthology accompanied by a detailed Leader’s Guide with dozens of carefully crafted lessons. These curricula can be used to run a complete workshop or as stand-alone lessons for school advisory groups, counseling groups, and after-school programs. Our professional development can help your staff make the most of these programs and learn key techniques to effectively engage youth.

 

Our Programs:

•             Social & Emotional Learning

                  - Real Stories, Real Teens (high school)

                  - #trending (middle school)

•             Work Readiness: Real Jobs

•             Masculinity: Real Men

•             Resilience: The Struggle to Be Strong

•             Conflict Resolution: The Courage to Be Yourself

•             Transitions: Managing Transitions for Teens

Anthologies

We offer dozens of anthologies on essential social and emotional topics. Our stories resonate with teen readers and help open up thoughtful discussions. They also encourage reading: In one study of 2,000 teen participants in our work readiness program, 77% of the teens reported voluntarily reading stories beyond those assigned.
