WHAT IS KEEP CONNECTED?

Keep Connected is a seven-session research-centered program that gives parents and their middle school youth opportunities to explore how to strengthen their relationships through interactive activities and discussions. It was developed by Search Institute, a national youth research organization that bridges research and practice to help young people be and become their best selves. This two-generation family engagement resource is designed for groups of 6 to 12 families each time it is offered. The program curriculum is designed around the 5 keys of developmental relationships which are: Express Care, Challenging Growth, Provide Support, Sharing Power, & Expanding Possibilities
