In support of National Addictions Awareness Week, the Community Drug Strategy Committee presents Keith Pattinson with 40 Developmental Assets: What Our Youth Need to Succeed.
It can be a daunting task to reach out to our youth and impact their lives in a positive way. Yet, there are many simple actions that we can all do that will make a huge difference in the lives of the young people in the Comox Valley.
The 40 Developmental Assets are concrete, positive experiences and qualities that can have a tremendous influence on young people’s lives.
Pattinson, who formerly worked at the Comox Valley Boys & Girls Club, is one of Canada’s most inspirational and humorous, motivating speakers. He has delivered over 400 presentations across Canada and the U.S. over the past five years to parents, educators, other professionals and young people.
His presentation in the Comox Valley will be held at the Stan Hagen Theatre (North Island College, 2300 Ryan Rd. in Courtenay) on Nov. 20 at 7 p.m. This event is free.
Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis and the doors open at 6:30. This presentation is ideal for parents, grandparents, caregivers, service providers, teachers and coaches.
