Resiliency Training for community mentors

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Community Science Initiative listened to our partners’ needs, which included a desire for mentors with social-emotional mentoring skills. We created a training series focused on ways to increase individual resilience and teach resilience to others, all with a focus on multicultural awareness. This program is a collaboration with Dr. Patrick Jeffs, founder and CEO of The Resiliency Solution.
