Empowering Students Towards Success

This online workshop hosted by School on Wheels and former tutor and PhD candidate Jason Rarick presented an opportunity for tutors to engage in an informal discussion on the value of connecting youth to their own narratives and how tutors can promote a sense of empowerment toward success. For students of any age, setting positive goals is a tremendous undertaking amid so many other obstacles. Jason’s presentation addressed effective ways we can motivate students despite this and maybe even because of it.

Note: The video starts about 5 minutes into the presentation.
