ARISE – You Bet I’m Listening Manual

Lessons for youth using stories on Gangs and Anger showing anger management for teens

Click to zoom in


Listening is not easy, but it can be learned. Listening has many attributes. It gathers information, builds strong relationships, and helps solve problems.

You can become a successful You Bet I’m Listening listener if your heart is in it. When You Bet I’m Listening first began, ARISE Foundation recruited college students from local universities who were interested in helping youth. Each volunteer participated in training and then over a ten-week period listened to at-risk juveniles for one hour per week.

If your organization would like to use volunteers, or has staff available to become You Bet I’m Listening listeners, give each person the easy to read You Bet I’m Listening manual. The You Bet I’m Listening program can be used with different age groups in schools, secure settings, youth organizations and churches. It is also a valuable manual for parents to learn to listen to their children and their spouse.

The 52 page manual provides:

  • Techniques for becoming a good listener
  • Tips and strategies for conducting I’m Listening sessions
  • Roadblocks in communication
  • Communication with difficult people
  • Establishing rapport
  • Active listening skills
  • Conversation starters
  • Problem solving skills
  • Points on becoming a nonjudgmental listener

When we are listened to, it creates us, makes us unfold
and expand.

— Karl Menninger
