Registration Open for Training on Dropout Prevention Strategies for Wounded Youth

November 30, 2016


The National Center for School Engagement is offering “Dropout Prevention Strategies for Wounded Students” on January 26, 2017, in Denver, CO. Many at-risk youth carry "wounds" to school each day that are a result of trauma. This interactive training will provide educators, counselors, and administrators with trauma-informed policies and strategies to help wounded youth heal and achieve positive student outcomes.
