Professional Development at the
Tutor Mentor Conference,
November 19 and 20.
"Demonstration" Programs that Improve YOUR School/Organization
and Serve as Professional Development for YOUR Staff
(Friday November 20, from 9:40am-12:15pm)
The Global Citizenship Experience (GCE) is an innovative and replicable model designed by Educational Endeavors (EE). In addition to the GCE Learning Institute, which we design and run, GCE programs are adopted by schools and organizations which seek to build systems for transforming youth into inspired learners, engage parents in their children’s education, and cultivate corporate and non-profit partners.
EE/GCE staff help schools and organizations design and run customized EE/GCE programs – from intensive summer programs to supplemental school-year workshops. Our workshop at the Tutor/Mentor Leadership and Networking Conference is a cost effective way to help your school or organization begin or improve upon designing, planning, and implementing programs that connect curriculum across the spectrum of subjects and extend classroom learning into neighborhoods, cities, and the world at large. Additionally, the workshop will help you discover ways to capitalize on the network of resources that will raise awareness about your work and lead to additional funding and volunteers.
Our November 20th session at the Tutor/Mentor Leadership and Networking Conference is a "working workshop." We recommend that administrators, education coordinators, and teachers participate, ideally in teams of 2-5 people representing one organization. We will work through portions of the assessment and visioning phases necessary to build school-year and summer programs. We will identify the specific programs that your organization is most interested in pursuing and begin the process of making it happen.
Please let us know if you are interested in participating by emailing Eric Davis, or register directly with http://www.tutormentorconference.org/. Please call me if you have any questions (312. 266. 0123).

Many thanks and we hope to see you there.
ELIMINATE W.M.Ds (WHINING, MANIPULATION, and DISRESPECT) IN YOUR HOME:
LEARN TO DIFFUSE POWER STRUGGLES WITH YOUR TEEN!
One of the most frustrating experiences a parent endures is fighting with their teenagers and getting caught in a power struggle. Fights at home erupt for many reasons. Sometimes it's over small stuff like cleaning up a bedroom or asking to put aside the cell phone while doing homework or to turn off the TV at night. Other times a teen might be outright manipulative, deceitful and disrespectful - and send her parents into a real tailspin in the process.
There is an old saying that “Children don’t come with an instruction manual”. While this may be true, it doesn't mean there aren't incredibly useful tools parents can learn to help eliminate these frustrating, difficult - and often exhausting - attitudes and behaviors in their teenagers.
In this training, Family Coach and Youth Mentor Joshua Wayne, MA will give parents 5 incredibly effective, battle-tested tools for gently and effectively ending the power struggle with their teens.
Parents will learn:
