The Workshop Staff will be addressing developmental skills relevant to this age group through music, role play and so much more! Returners or new, your teen will find the skills they learn will enhance their leadership skills and continue to develop their emotional, social and resiliency skills.

Trailblazer 2015 (2)

The curriculum for Trailblazer is updated constantly in order to meet the needs and address current issues teens are facing. However, there is a core to the curriculum and it follows three main principles:

Six Pillars of Character Three Powerful Medicines Youth Development
Trustworthiness
Respect
Responsibility
Fairness
Caring
Citizenship
Power of Genuine Apology
Power of Laughter & Play
Power of Honest Conversation
Competence
Confidence
Connection
Character
Compassion
Conscience

All three principles are invaluable life skills and assets that teach teens how to effectively deal with everyday situations. If  during Trailblazer we receive a great deal of feedback from participants during the workshop on specific topics, we will alter the curriculum to fit their needs. Also, about 80% of the curriculum can be introduced in multiple settings; partner activities, small/large group interactions, games, or skits/presentations. We utilize these settings based on the participants needs.
