Christine Keller, M.A., M.S.Ed will present at SOYAN (Supporting Our Young Adults Network) this month. She will discuss her role as a parent and educator and the impetus for establishing The Children’s Sangha (2003). Our approach to working with children and young adults is reflected in our philosophy or Different Abilities Development Model which will be included in our presentation “Nature’s-Child, Whole-Child: Cultivating the Different Abilities of Our Youth to Foster Self-Determination and Resilience”. Through first-hand experiences and community exposure, we help young people find and follow their passion while developing skills. Christine will explain the importance of a “whole child” approach to teaching and learning in which a community of care, cooperation, and compassion enables our young people to find personal meaning and feelings of self-worth while they take on a range of opportunities with peers and mentors. This will be an interactive session where we will get to know one another as members of the community. SOYAN invites all who are interested to attend their meetings to receive information about activities for young adults post high school. Please join us for this evenings meeting and The Children’s Sangha’s presentation.
