LOGOS Alternatiave School 20-21 Speaker Series Icon

 

Through a generous grant from The Edward E. Ford Foundation, Dana Brown Charitable Trust, and Robert & Toni Bader Charitable Foundation, and other community partners, LOGOS School is proud to present a robust and engaging speaker series of regionally and nationally recognized presenters who will address the most pertinent and challenging situations of current times pertaining to youth. This speaker series will provide parents, educators and the community information and tools available to help adolescents work through issues they struggle with daily. This information will help destigmatize mental health issues to put all students on equal footing and a path to success. 

Through these sessions we plan to:

  • Give parents, educators, therapists and community members access to programs that will inform, teach and support them to help navigate the uncertain times adolescents are experiencing.
  • Destigmatize mental health issues and other common struggles adolescents are dealing with today.
  • Ensure adolescents and their families have the tools and skills necessary to manage and overcome mental health issues, stay in school, graduate and become productive members of the community.

All sessions are free of charge for anyone in the community who would like to learn more about these important topics.
