Resilience is better achieved when you are able to assess your risks and when you feel confident about your skills to manage them. That is why we established preparedness workshops in our alternative high school.
Seventy students and 15 teachers have benefited from workshops, drills and other preparedness education for dealing with natural disasters.
These teenagers now feel empowered about their skills and they can become key resources to their families and neighborhoods in situations like hurricanes or earthquakes. Not to mention their overall emotional resilience as they grow into healthy and confident adults.
We are grateful to all donors and allies who have made these workshops possible. Please continue to donate so we can continue this effort and address other topics of emotional and community resilience with children and teenagers in our neighborhoods.
