The workshops also model the development of a positive learning environment, and prepare you for implementation of the programs.
We believe that the Lions Quest programs will develop -
- Develop positive behaviours such as self-discipline, good judgement, and responsibility
- Practice skills and strategies to resolve conflicts peacefully
- Learn the importance of respecting others
- Celebrate diversity
- Embrace a healthy, drug-free approach to life
It is a comprehensive blend of skill building, participation in activities from the curriculum, discussion, sharing, and time for reflection. Participants will be able to become involved with the materials in the same ways the curriculum asks students to become involved. You will also have time to explore your own creativity and share resources with others. We believe you will find it informational, instructional, and rewarding.
Our experience, supported by considerable research, has shown that even the best material is only as good as the instructor’s knowledge of how to use it. Our workshops will give potential program leaders a solid understanding of the program goals and hands-on experience with the material.
The entire workshop serves as a model of what should take place in a Lions Quest class. Under the leadership of a Lions Quest trainer, the participants work together and explore ways to help young people develop responsibility, self-confidence, self-discipline, and a commitment to helping others. Learning, skill building, and personal interaction combine to create the positive atmosphere that is the essence of the Lions Quest classroom.
Lions Quest workshops are open to anyone interested in helping young people, including parents, clergy, teachers, counselors, administrators, and representatives of community agencies.
