Every community is different. NJ schools and students face different challenges. The Lindsey Meyer Teen Institute is dedicated to creating custom programs that best address the needs of your school, your community, your students- and your budget. Let us help you tailor a program that suits your needs! Here are just some of the programmatic components you may choose to include:
LMTI keynote presenters have been carefully selected to insure the highest levels of quality, creativity, and effectiveness. Participants will have the opportunity to see and interact with national as well as local presenters who are known for their unconventional and non traditional presentation styles. Don’t expect any lectures- get ready for dynamic and enthusiastic comedians, musicians, and actors who address topics such as leadership, diversity, and alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs.
Small Group Discussions
All LMTI participants will be randomly placed into small group discussion groups called “Process Groups.” This enables student leaders to meet new people and to openly discuss topics that are presented during the course of the conference or training. These discussions are facilitated by trained LMTI Volunteers, Youth Staff, and/or College Staff and are designed to build skills, friendships, and self-esteem, while encouraging networking among youth.
Action Planning Sessions
Looking for ways to engage students directly in making positive changes in your school or community? If so, then Action Planning is a must for your training or conference. Students will work together to candidly identify risk and protective factors in their school/community. They’ll pool their resources and talents and come up with a strategic prevention plan that will help to ignite change!
Workshops topics are centered upon up to date issues that are pertinent to high school or middle school students. Participants leave these experiential workshops with increased knowledge as well as tools to utilize in their Action Planning Process. Workshops are a great time to add additional critical elements to your training agenda. For more examples of workshops click here.
Depending upon your location, students will have the chance to engage in team-building activities or to experience an ASE (Action Socialization Experience) low ropes challenge course. This unique experience will help foster group cohesion and individual self discovery amongst your Action Group.
