Empowering Disconnected Youth:
The Protective Factors of Healthy Relationship Education
Relationships, whether sound or not, are central to the lives of disconnected youth. When at-risk youth learn healthy relationship skills they discover how to make beneficial decisions about their lives, their romantic relationships, and their family connections.
We will identify risk factors that foster youth and runaway, homeless youth experience and how healthy relationship education offers protective factors that empower them to make healthier choices for their futures.
At the conclusion of this webinar, attendees will:
- Identify the risk factors that disconnected youth experience and the protective factors that healthy relationship education offers them.
- Learn how healthy relationship education increases social and emotional well-being as well as decision making for youth.
- Discover how the evidence-based curriculum Love Notes is being used to improve outcomes for at-risk, homeless youth.
