Adolescence Unplugged (10 years-25 years old)
From Maggie’s extensive experience of working with adolescents for more than 40 years she has created an informative, dynamic seminar for families, schools and communities to better understand adolescence and to explore how to build resilience and connectedness in 10-25-year-olds. Adolescents need adult allies to help them navigate the tricky waters of the teenage years – the art of guiding, and encouraging empowerment while strengthening self-esteem and personal autonomy is one that can be learned. This seminar explores the shift in raising children to raising adolescents, and what works and what won't. There will also be a Q&A afterwards with local experts including Maggie. Many thanks to Maggie for donating her time to Youth Focus and the Hawaiian Ride for Youth and to Wesley College for supplying the amazing venue. ALL proceeds from the night will go directly to Youth Focus.
