The TEEN TRUTH: Difference Maker Summit teaches youth how to be effective leaders who think critically about school challenges and develop an effective plan to overcome those challenges to create a safer campus.

The two-part interactive training session begins by training key leaders to think differently about their role on campus and the current issues impacting your school climate. The second section teaches your students to develop a complete blueprint to address the identified concerns. The program is offered to schools and districts intent on improving the impact of existing leadership groups or that are looking to identify new student leaders.

The TT: DMS is a two-hour workshop guided by your TT speaker. He or she will use storytelling, critical thinking skills, and interactive activities to lead your students through the leadership workshop. At the conclusion of this program your students will:

  • Identify critical campus issues that need to be addressed
  • Brainstorm tangible and executable solutions that they can implement on campus
  • Understand the value of building a campus united by the concept of “we” and not “me”
  • Create an activity calendar including events that focus on connecting the student body

Your workshop was awesome! It really impacted our leadership group in a positive way! Can't wait to go forth with some of the ideas we came up with!
