PRO Youth and Families’ vision and actions respond to the widespread impacts of trauma. Our strategy works at many levels: reorienting and strengthening community organizations, engaging youth and their families in the communities they live in at a grass-roots level, and sharing and building the skills critical to reducing the social and emotional impact of trauma.
We know that trauma can be healed by resilience – a strength that can be learned by developing healthy habits. Compassion for yourself, nurturing social communications and bonds, and cultivating optimism and hope are at the core of what PRO Youth and Families provides to the youth, families and communities it serves.
Through interactive workshops youth and adults learn about life skills, how to better engage as parents and how to empower youth, improve family communication and resolve conflicts.
