Our second event of the week, Creating Leaders, Empowering Communities, will be held on Thursday, September 28th from 5:30-6:30pm at Jackson Hole Middle School Commons. Violence prevention expert Jeff Bucholtz is back in Jackson Hole to lead the conversation designed to explore the power everyone has to build a more positive environment in which we are all a bit safer, less stressed, healthier and happier. Content will be appropriate for students ages 13 and older. The event is free and no registration required.
The workshop will focus on developing community leaders through positive relationships to become agents of change. As agents of change we will build skills for acting on behalf of others, even in little ways – being selfless rather than selfish – and setting an example of respect, healthy relationships, and serving/supporting one another.
CSN and Jeff Bucholtz, are in their third year of prevention programming in Jackson Hole that teaches and motivates high students and caring adults to build healthy relationship skills, and that violence never equals strength. Bucholtz’ previous engagements in the valley have been well-received and celebrated by students, parents and school staff alike.
“CSN is committed to programming that promotes respectful relationships, safety, and advocacy. Young people learn through messaging and modeling. These learning opportunities create a strong foundation for teens to develop into thoughtful, healthy and happy adults,” says Andy Cavallaro, Executive Director of Community Safety Network.
Both events are free and open to the public. For more information, please contact Prevention and Education Director Shannon Nichols at 307.733.3711.
