“Our alternative school adopted The Struggle to Be Strong school wide. It transformed our school culture! The stories became a shared touchstone for staff and students, helping us to build positive relationships. The common framework of ‘resiliencies’ offered a strengths-based approach to working with struggling youth. Through the lessons we could meet them where they were at, and then guide them to a place of greater empowerment and agency in their lives. The Struggle to Be Strong brought us together as a community.”
