Gunn and PALY Sources of Strength Parent Night

Mon, 11/21/2016 - 11:01am

Gunn and Paly families, students and community members are invited to learn about Sources of Strength, the wellness program based on building resilience at both high schools. Please join us, along with Lucille Packard Hospital's Dr. Shashank Joshi and Dr. Steve Adelsheim to participate in our spreading messages of hope, help and strength.

December 1st      7:00 - 8:30pm
Media Arts Center at Palo Alto High School

All The Sources of Strength Teams (trusted adults) and Peer Leaders from Palo Alto High School and Gunn High School will be offering an experience for parents to take part in some of the routines of our Sources of Strength program as well as hear student testimonials about how they use the different parts of the Sources of Strength Wheel in their daily life. The Peer Leaders (students) are very excited to share with you all about what they have been doing this year and how this program continues to impacts their lives.

Through Sources of Strength, our youth are identifying, discussing, and strengthening protective factors in their own lives, as well as working together to become agents of positive change and connectors to help those around them. As change agents, they will spread messages in person and via social media about the various sources of hope, help and strength available to the community. The Sources of Strength program actively creates a culture of increased awareness, compassion and support for all students facing the daily struggles of school and life and teaches strategies for building resilience and multiple sources of strength.

Please join us to learn how to continue the conversations of hope, help and strength at home and in our families as well.
