Instructor Led Life Skills Instructor Training: Testimonials

Maria Sumner
Satilla Community Services-Waycross, Georgia
“The training exceeded my expectations. The instructor modeled all the techniques taught and she provided positive feedback and encouragement throughout the training. I loved using guidelines rather than rules and learning how to re-frame negatives into positives. The lesson plan provided to prepare for groups will be very useful.

Anna Mendez
Santa Rosa School District – Santa Rosa, Florida
“ The part that was most valuable to me was re-naming something negative to give it a positive connotation such as calling rules standards or guidelines. . I found the hands on teaching that was non-judgmental very helpful”


Natasha Mitchell
Families Count – Pensacola, Florida
“ It was very helpful to split off into different groups and learn ways to teach the students, so that the students get to know each other. The information on how to increase group participation was invaluable. The ARISE formula is most helpful. I learned more information than I though. Su is a great instructor.”


Robin R. May
Youth Count/ Families Court – Ft Walton Beach, Florida
“ I really needed to be reminded to plan a large number of discussion questions . I often think I can wing it, but groups always go more smoothly if I plan. This training gave me wonderful tools for planning and a way to structure what I teach”.

Yolanda Garcia
AMI Kids – North Miami Dade County, Florida
“The training was very well taught. It was positive and fun. The positivity cards were very useful. The topics offered in the workbooks are relevant to the adolescent population that we work with. At times the most difficult part of running a group is choosing a topic that captivates your audience. ARISE workbooks provide us with that material”


Yashica Cobb
