YDEKC’s Cultivating a Growth Mindset – Part 1 (of 2-part series), January 30
Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute
Our youth are navigating a world that measures their abilities with increasing frequency. How can we help them persevere at times when they feel they are not meeting the academic, social, or skill-based expectations of school, home or community? In this workshop, we will explore how cultivating a growth mindset in our youth (and in ourselves) leads to stronger persistence and performance, setting a foundation for youth to reach their potential even when faced with challenges.
