Supporting Confidence, Competence and a Sense of Well-Being: A Two Day Workshop focused onYouth in Transition
 Are you case manager, transition specialist, teacher, school counselor,  family member, case manager, or state agency staff? 
If so, this workshop is for you!
Being connected to people we love is critical to our emotional and physical well-being. Many youth experiencing our services are lonely and lack meaningful relationships. This workshop is designed to move beyond interventions and coverage to a system that supports enduring, freely chosen relationships, especially critical in the transition from youth to young adulthood.  Difficult behaviors result from unmet needs. This workshop will examine seven quality of life indicators that are often missing and strategies to support belonging and build relationships.

All of our GEAR UP students have a story to tell. It's up to us to help them find their voice to tell it. Do you know a student who would be interested in sharing their story with GEAR UP Maine? Be it a story of success or struggle, we want to hear it and share it. It's so important now, more than ever, that our students' voices are heard. Please contact GEAR UP Maine Communication Specialist, Kayla Hopkins if you are interested in diving into this student story-telling adventure.
