For traumatized youth:
It's not a WON'T. It's a CAN'T.
We can help you figure out how to help youth!
Making your home, organization or classroom more Trauma-Informed can be daunting. But, we are here - first - to listen, and then to cater our resiliency-building services to build a culture of belonging. All of our programming is strength-based and our trainings and information are steeped in documented research that is proven to work.
What makes our approach significantly different from other T-I consultants and trainers is that we use arts-integration methods to deepen your learning, risk-taking and inventiveness. We also authentically commit to the practice of NOTHINGABOUTMEWITHOUTME.
That means that if you are trying to change the paradigm of your organization, school or home and you'd prefer not to involve youth of color in the conversation and/or not engage young people in the creation of programming that affects them, then I Am M.O.R.E. might not be the right match for you, as we intentionally celebrate youth voice.
But, if you are interested in working with a consultancy firm whose first priority is helping you authentically build the resiliency of young people, then I invite you to get in touch
with us. Our prices are reasonable and we LOVE what we do!
I Am M.O.R.E. leader Faiza Jama, speaking at an Oregon Education Association symposium, explains that adults need to see the humanity of young people to build their resiliency.
You have to see me to reach me
Know me to teach me
Help me to feel safe
Help me to save face
It's not that I won't learn
My brain needs a U-turn
I need social-emotional help
so I can learn to calm myself ...
