No More Stigma

May is Mental Health Awareness Month...

May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and although the month is coming to a close, we want the messages of this month to live throughout the year. 

We can change the way the world sees mental health.

Lean in and Listen

Share your knowledge!  Call for Presenters...

We are seeking knowledgeable and outgoing youth and adults to present workshops, or serve on youth panels for the 2016 Out of School Time Developmental Assets® Conference to be held on Saturday, October 15, 2016.

The conference theme is “Youth Voice: Lean in and Listen”. We are looking for workshop presenters & youth panelists who can share real-world successes and struggles in engaging young people in real and relevant ways.

Workshop sessions are facilitator-led and are designed to share successful strategies, practices, and ideas that participants can take and use in their work with youth. They can be led by youth and/or adults. Click here to learn more about WORKSHOPS!

Youth Panel sessions are designed to foster open discussion between youth panelists and the audience. Panels are youth-led and based on a specific topic area. Click here to learn more about YOUTH PANELS!

If you would like to discuss ideas for a workshop or panel, or want more information about Developmental Assets®, please contact Michael Swisher at mswish@arlingtonva.us or 703-228-1671.
