Get ready for a fun day of training with the Why Try? Program that is currently used by K-12 schools, educational institutions, group homes, mental health agencies, and youth correctional facilities as a means to teach valuable life skills. It may be used with individual students, small or large groups to help students answer the question, why try in life. The program offers solutions on how to respond to daily life stressors that students can both understand and remember. The teaching materials target different learning modalities by utilizing visual analogies, music, videos, and experiential activities to make better decisions in life that lead to opportunity, freedom, and self-respect. Participants will engage in multiple fun activities that include moving, developing strategies to surrender “one-up” relationships, ability to network and collaborate with other participants throughout the training, learn how to setup and design lessons, and deliver inspiring messages through multiple hands-on activities. Advanced purchase of the program may be purchased at https://whytry.org/
