Thanks to Summit Parkway Middle School principal Dr. April Shell for allowing Rebirth Enterprise Youth Development Program to provide our 6 week program, Rebirth Chat Forum Program, to your students. The program helps address nation wide rise of behavioral problems due to the pandemic. It is VITAL for schools administrators to be proactive to lessen the emotional effects that many students are still facing post pandemic. This program allows students to communicate suppressed or unspoken distresses of the pandemic and life in general.. The students discuss topics on social-emotional skills and character building.
The topics discussed were: Emotional-Awareness➡️Healthy Boundaries ➡️Conflict Resolution Skills➡️Accountability➡️Establishing Healthy Relationships➡️SMART GOALS
The students received a certificate of completion. They made the decision to show up for each session and they contributed each discuss. It was a pleasure and a blessing to sow into their lives.
Here are some of the reflections from the students:
"I learned about self-control and how to have boundaries."
"We learned that we can set our own boundaries."
"I learned how to have control and how to be grounded and not like others."
"I learned to be more responsible and have self discipline."
"We learned not to let peer pressure get us to do what we don't want to do."
"Don't let anyone force you outside of your boundaries."
"If you are getting frustrated and mad, take a deep breath and meditate."
Thank you Ms. Drake for pouring into our male mentoring group this year. The topics covered by the program were just what our middle school students needed. Your program definitely made a difference in the lives of our males. We can't wait to have you in The Nest next year for our female group. I'll be in touch!
“Where Eagles Protect The Nest!"
