Merry Christmas! Happy Holidays! Happy New Year!

The Holiday Season is upon us! Soon we will enter what we think of as the "Holiday Zone" when the world seems to go at a little slower pace - at least post-Christmas when there may be a little "down time!"

This is the time we take a look back at the year which is drawing to a close, and look forward to the year ahead. It is not uncommon to hear comments such as, "Where did the year go?" or "Is it really 2023? Where did 2022 go?" Even though "time marches on," it is a perfect opportunity to reflect on the past and plan for the future.

We hope these new activities, featured in this month's Resource Connection, are helpful to process this year-end reflection and new year planning. They would be great to use with the children and youth you serve...and yourself!

As 2022 comes to a close, we are grateful for each of you and your dedication to connecting with and making a difference for the children and youth in your life. We wish you a wonderful holiday season and look froward to working with you in 2023!

Review of My Year

A New Year Begins

Join us soon for a Curriculum-Based Support Group (CBSG®) Program Facilitator Training

Kids’ Connection, Youth Connection, and Kids’ Connection, Too (collectively known as the CBSG® Program) are unique, interactive, multi-cultural curriculum-based prevention interventions that teach high-risk children and youth ages4-17 a set of essential life skills: skills to help them learn how to cope with difficult family situations (which include Adverse Childhood Experiences), resist negative peer pressure, set and achieve goals, and refuse alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs.

This training is designed to fully prepare schools, community-based organizations, churches, juvenile justice divisions, volunteers, and other youth service professionals to fully implement the CBSG® Program with fidelity. Those completing this training will receive their choice one of the CBSG® Program Facilitator manuals:
