Your role is important
The dark cloud of trauma can feel overwhelming for youth. It can also feel heavy for you as a teacher, mentor, or caregiver. The relationships that you build with youth in schools and community settings are invaluable. In fact, they are just as important as the relationships built by social workers, counselors, and psychologists.
Expand your skill set
As you connect with youth and support them on their trauma healing journey, you may find yourself wishing that you had more guidance. Most trauma resources and trainings are geared toward social workers and counselors, leaving community partners feeling alone and unsupported. Storiez offers resources and trainings with you in mind. Using the power of narratives and creativity, we provide you with guidance and support as you walk with youth down a path toward a more hopeful future.
