Connecting with Disengaged Youth: Exploring Educator Vulnerability

In this listening session, Sean Perry, Co-Founder and Executive Director of We R H.O.P.E.— an innovative Vermont-based nonprofit organization that brings free mental health supports to students in rural schools—will explore educator vulnerability. Join us to learn strategies for re-framing vulnerability as a weakness and designating it as an asset that can be embraced and used to your advantage in the classroom, generally, and as you work to connect with disengaged youth, specifically during these uncertain times. Everyone in the school building needs to connect with their real needs and emotions, embrace self-compassion, and re-charge by remembering what brought them to a youth-serving career. In fact, that's the kind of connection that may be what's most needed now—for ourselves, our youth, and our communities.
