Dearborn County CASA has been hosting a Youth Summit for local 8th graders for the past 13 years. Youth Ambassadors present workshops, or as we like to call them, LEARNSHOPS. There are six 30 minute learnshops presented within the one day conference as well as hands on learning experiences. Topics covered during the summit include: alcohol, drugs, vaping, decision making, and other topics relevant to teenagers in our current social climate. This conference is based on the framework of peer to peer activities designed to encourage the best memory retention. Hands on activities provide learning experiences for all types of learners; giving them opportunities to be both observer and performer. Hands-on training exposes students to the challenges and obstacles they may encounter and gives them the opportunity to practice their problem solving skills. Learnshops are created and ran by our Youth Ambassadors. They strive to provide their audience with an evidence based, peer to peer, learning experience.
This incredible learning experience would not be possible without the support of our generous sponsors. Please consider supporting our local youth. You can request more information by contacting us.
