  • Interactive discussion and support are the basis of the curriculum.
  • Leadership for each meeting will be shared among members.
  • Program guidelines must be followed in order for program success.
  • Unconditional respect is required.
  • Teens address social and emotional learning.
  • Community is built where teens find a place to “belong”.

MPOWRD Training Program

Facilitators will be certified and trained personnel in youth outreach with certified background checks required within each organization.  Ideally two facilitators should be trained from each location to provide  “back-up” to meetings.

This program offers a comprehensive approach for individuals planning to offer MPOWRD meetings within their facilities.  Defining personal empowerment, finding unconditional support, developing new strategies in addressing personal change, insuring confidentiality while creating balance and trust, are just several of the key components which will be emphasized at the training.  Breakout sessions will be included simulating meeting introduction and strategies.  Lesson plans will be reviewed for consistency in approach and outreach.

Program Regulations:

MPOWRD training is available to: coalitions, high school staff, behavioral health providers, juvenile detention services, and other youth support agencies requiring clearance to work with youth.  Certification will be granted when program begins at the site location and MPOWRD is notified.
