Do you want to be a positive change in Kent? You can through Youth-Led Prevention

High school students at Kent Roosevelt now have the opportunity to participate in the Youth-Led Prevention (YLP) program facilitated by Townhall ll. Youth-led programs provide a platform to effectively engage youth voice and youth action, equipping young people with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes required to impact their community. YLP programs engage young people in the community differently from volunteer work. Through the investigation of local data and community resources, young people gain a greater knowledge and understanding of community problems and the factors that contribute to these issues.

Both youth and the community benefit from the Youth-led programs. Individuals who participate in YLP develop strong leadership and civic skills. In addition, young people increase their confidence in their ability to influence change within their society, both as individuals and as members of a group. Communities also benefit from YLP. When young people are an integral part of the solution, they are more effective in creating change. Through a process of collaboration between youth and adult allies, community members begin to see youth as community assets. Neighborhoods that embrace Youth-Led Programs have young citizens who become more resilient and responsible adults.

If your child is interested in participating Youth-Led prevention, they can join us for a Welcome meeting on Monday, January 25th at 11 AM via Google Meets.

Please contact Tiffany Rittenour, Ohio Certified Prevention Specialist at Townhall ll by email: tiffanyr@townhall2.com with any questions regarding the Youth-Led Prevention program.  https://meet.google.com/izc-aqrs-gxu

End of Course Testing Beginning Nov 30

If your student is scheduled to take the State End of Course test this fall, beginning November 30,  you would have received a letter and email.  Below is the  information outlined with details from the letter.  We have arranged for your student to come in on opposite days of face to face instruction.  The following table shows when your student should come to school to take the tests.

 

COHORT ***TEST DATE *** TIME
A Wed Dec 2 and Fri Dec 4 7:30am -11:00am
B Tue Dec 1 and Thu Dec 3 7:30am – 11:00am
C Mon Nov 30 and Mon Dec 7 7:30am -10:30am

 

***Students should still report to school on their assigned cohort days.  The tests are scheduled on       asynchronous learning days. If your student is taking multiple tests, they may need to attend more than one    day. ***

Students in cohorts A and B are able to take the bus to school as on a normal day.  Breakfast and lunch will be provided at no cost. Buses will depart at 11:00am for the students testing on that day.

Transportation and food will not be provided for cohort C because typically there are no students in the school on Mondays. Therefore, transportation and food service is not available. If this presents an issue for any student, please contact Mrs. Jay D’Aurelio 330-676-8728 to schedule testing on the other days.

BGSU virtual visits, education opportunities and affordable options

The Virtual College Search:
How Students Can Find Their Fit at BGSU Virtually

Tuesday, Nov. 10, at 11 a.m. EST
What does a “virtual” college search look like? We never thought we’d be answering that question, but here we are! Between social media, live information sessions, virtual 1:1 meetings and beyond, we believe our virtual offerings can help a student feel at home at BGSU before they event step foot on campus – even if virtual events aren’t their preferred way to approach their college search. 

Life Design: A New Kind of Education at BGSU
Tuesday, Nov. 17, at 11 a.m. EST
BGSU is the first university of its size and scale to launch the Life Design model University-wide. Come to a session to learn about Life Design and how you can start to use it as a counselor in your school. Our students are paving a path of purpose to create a life they love. Through a transformational approach to education, Life Design begins by understanding who you truly are and exploring who you hope to be. Students are challenged to think beyond their major in a holistic way. Life Design takes what students learn in the classroom to an entirely new level. Through BGSU Life Design, students develop the skills they need to pivot when faced with challenges, and the confidence they need when faced with choices.

Our students are preparing to apply to their dream schools, but they have to do it in the middle of a pandemic. Talk about stress!

We want to help support them, so we’re including a special segment in our upcoming October Student Voices Webinar featuring Harvard sophomore and #ICANHELP Content Intern Jordan Sanchez.

Jordan is a rising star who is not only on top of her college game, but has a book deal, a successful YouTube channel on college life, and a TikTok following of 50K+ with whom she shares school and life advice.
