Transition Coordinator, Sheila Koenig, joined Jeff Thompson in the Blind Abilities studio to introduce us to the new workshop series, “Level Up”.
SSB is excited to launch a new opportunity for students to connect with peers and learn about self-advocacy. On Thursday, April 16 at 7 p.m. CST we will begin our series “Level Up: Learning Self-Advocacy through Music, Movies, & More”. Most of us learned about self-advocacy the hard way- through difficult experiences and personal set-backs. Here’s a chance to learn about self-advocacy the fun way. We’ll draw on movie clips, songs, and lots more to demonstrate, in an engaging way, the tools people use to take control of their futures.
This is an 8-week phone/virtual series. Topics include self-determination, positive self-talk, motivation, problem-solving, and more. This is a free series open to students in high school with a vision loss. Students do not need to be connected to SSB to participate.
In order to get call-in information, students should send an email to Sheila.Koenig@state.mn.us
Join us for this creative and interactive workshop series that will help you learn to “Level Up” to your best self.
