Teens lead the way, introducing emotional wellness curricula to grades 4 and higher. Students exercising the activities grow more able to balance the weight of life's worries.
Bring the global
Peer Leadership and Depression Prevention (PLDP) program into your community! This program is available to communities throughout the world that have a Rotary club. Massachusetts Rotary clubs receive details the evening of Monday, Nov.16. Look-up a Rotary club near you and either ask a member to bring you to this training event or to return with information about the Interact PLDP global grant program.
Teens train using curricula from Boston Children's Hospital (grades 8-12) or William James College (grades 4-8)and then implement it with schools and youth groups. Last month, Interact teens worked with nearly 400 Freshmen, broken into 25 small groups to more easily normalize the conversation and engage each student. Results are measured by changes in Knowledge, Attitude, and Confidence in help-seeking.
