Courageous Conversations

Build empathy and connection to others by inviting young people to speak and listen from the heart in "Everyday SEL" conversations. Sometimes a concept comes up we are afraid to admit we don't know, or we may be timid about introducing conflict or different opinions. We can build a sense of safety and resilience to talk about important things through brief conversations. The tools below give guidance in facilitating courage and respect in conversations.
