Upstream in approach and with an eye to the challenges faced by children and teens in today’s society, the Empowering Life Series is a selection of research-backed presentations and workshops on a variety of topics relevant to the real needs of young people. Covering topics such as social media and mental health, love and abuse, depression and suicide, and intrinsic value, this series aims to help young people and their communities thrive.
At Signal Hill, our desire is to help individuals Value Every Person. Society is preoccupied with media, technology, marketing and unhealthy relationships - all of these things lead to a devalued sense of self-worth. As an educational organization, we show young people how to set healthy boundaries and inspire them to see the value in themselves and everyone they meet.
Through the Empowering Life Series program, we bring a solid perspective on life's most important and formative issues. During our presentations and workshops, we give young people an opportunity to gain insight, challenge perceptions, engage in dialogue, and develop the skill sets that will help them to discern when making critical life decisions.
Our workshops address the following topics:
- Love and Abuse
- Social Media and Personal Safety
- Intrinsic Value
- Depression and Suicide
- Free to Love
- Childhood Anxiety
Our Empowering Life Series speakers approach their audiences compassionately and without judgement, facing today's challenging issues with maturity, dignity and academic excellence. We encourage critical thinking and provide support and resources for students to make purposeful and healthy decisions.
Empowering Life Series speakers are available to deliver presentations in school classrooms or community groups and use a variety of teaching techniques and resources that will create an unforgettable experience. We work closely with each group to identify the best topic that will address the needs of the target audience.
