Friday Keynote speaker: Molly Creamer Co-Founder, Find The Courage
Find The Courage® is a nonprofit organization that inspires, educates and empowers young people to be positive leaders promoting respect, kindness, inclusion, and resiliency in their communities. The FTC programs allow students to better realize their opportunity to impact people positively on a daily basis, broaden perspective and gain awareness of hurtful behavior. In addition, they help students to gain empathy for others, while at the same time encourage resiliency. Ultimately, the programs give students language and skills to stand up for others, encourage others, and start to promote a positive school and/or community culture.
Over 35 sessions and events are scheduled. The Killington Adventure Ropes Course is included in your Thursday conference attendance, to be followed by an all member social at the Killington Grand from 5:00-6:00 pm. Friday morning will feature our annual awards breakfast, which is included in your Friday registration. Lunch is included for both days. A sampling of the topics are indicated below. And be sure to keep an eye out on both days for our raffle opportunities, worth over $1000!
