It's a Reclaiming Reunion!
Recharge your spirit in the inspriational setting in the Black Hills of South Dakota. Join us for our 20th Annual Black Hills Seminars Reclaiming Youth Conference June 22-24, 2013.
The Reclaiming Youth Conference offers practical skills for success with our most challenging children and youth. Presentations will tackle the difficult issues of youth violence, classroom discipline, racism, substance abuse, families in crisis, and development of support systems. The conference is grounded in resilience research showing that inner strengths and external supports are essential for positive youth development.
We have so many wonderful memories from the Black Hills Seminars over the past 20 years. We have grown and changed, yet in the spirit of belonging, mastery, independence, and generosity, we remain committed to providing the best training for all who work with youth. For this monumental year, we want to welcome you back to where it all started.
The preliminary schedule is attached at the bottom of this page, which includes workshop descriptions.
