The purpose of the C.A.R.E.S. youth leadership training program is to provide opportunities, skills and strategies for students, staff and families to learn essential social and emotional skills needed to create a learning community of caring relationships, high expectations for positive behaviors and how to lead healthy lives.
Embassy will collaborate with the designated school leadership and staff to design a program that includes interactive lessons and provide resources for the “C.A.R.E.S. Program” (Compassion – Action – Empathy – Responsibility – Support). This comprehensive program will include evidence-based curriculum supported by RAND and/or CASEL (The Collaborative for Academic Social and Emotional Learning) with additional resources will be provided by Embassy.
Embassy encourages administration to integrate efforts to create positive change, transform the school culture and ensure sustainability. Embassy’s process is to enhance, elevate and support existing school components and introduce some new concepts with this youth leadership program. To accomplish this, it requires that stakeholders include administrators, teachers, staff, students, families and community members, and best done through effective classroom instruction, student engagement in positive activities in and out of the classroom and include parent and community involvement.
