Learning from Youth Experts: Using a Strengths-Based Approach7 months ago 7 months ago
This toolkit was developed by Pathways to Education Canada.
HERE’S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS TOOLKIT:
As part of a series highlighting the expertise of Pathways staff, learn about a Pathways student’s journey with their mentor from Grade 9 to 11.
Highlighting a popular strengths-based approach used by Pathways staff, this glimpse into a mentor-mentee relationship reflects how encouraging young people to focus on their strengths rather than their perceived deficits can foster trust and encourage the self-advocacy skills that young people need as they navigate their path to a successful future.
