Impactful Interventions to Support Newcomer Adolescents

Thursday, March 2, 2023 | 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM

Join this moderated roundtable discussion as we review promising and evidence-based programs, including two SALaMA interventions: FORWARD with Peers, a 10-session program to bolster leadership and social-emotional learning skills, and EMPOWER, a 7-session PhotoVoice program to center newcomer student experiences and priorities.

We hope that the conversation will highlight programmatic approaches to strengthening newcomer adolescent resilience and fostering supportive peer relationships in school and community settings.

This program is the second session of the SALaMA Webinar Series.
