ARISE Certified Life Skills Group Facilitator (Instructor) Training

ARISE training infuses a sense of Confidence, Competence and Compassion that results in actively engaging at-risk youth in positive group sessions.

Overview of ARISE Life Skills Training Programs

Worries and Problems People Bring to Work.
Recipe for Success

ARISE staff training is not an add-water and stir-formula. Even the best curricula cannot succeed with its target audiences unless the learners are involved. Teens rarely stay engaged and trusting without regular feedback and respect from group facilitators. ARISE training also encourages its Group Facilitators to ask questions that create engaging, rich, spontaneous interactions among students in the classroom resulting in positive, memorable learning experiences in every ARISE group session.

ARISE staff training prepares youth educators, juvenile justice counselors, youth workers, prevention specialists, teachers, mental health staff, anyone working with at-risk youth to bring alive and effectively implement group learning using ARISE life skills lessons.

ARISE evidence based curricula and staff training have been specifically created for those working with troubled, misbehaving youth, young adult offenders in juvenile justice facilities, alternative to incarceration, community based intervention, youth in foster care, re-entry programs, school dropout prevention, independent living programs, military families and more. ARISE shines in groups that are made up of youth of different ages, different academic abilities, and various backgrounds.Check Negative Baggage at the Door merged

Every life skills training provides multi-sensory stimulation that allows participants to gain skills and competencies that encourage optimal implementation of the ARISE life skills curricula. ARISE training encompasses the many facets of conducting vibrant, attention grabbing interactive group sessions. Particularly valuable are positive strategies for accommodating youth who bring anger, bullying and emotional problems to group sessions.

A  degree in education is absolutely not required to be trained as an ARISE Life Skills Group Facilitator (Instructor). ARISE Life skills lessons are effectively taught by volunteers, counselors, juvenile care workers and teachers, anyone driven to make a difference by enriching and empowering the lives of troubled youth with essential skills for a successful life.


ARISE Life Skills Training is Important to Your Organization

A Positive Environment Benefits Everyone

We all realize managing and decreasing anger, stress, frustration and strengthening relationships in the workplace is a huge organizational benefit. ARISE professional trainings have proven to be effective and transformational not only in ARISE groups. ARISE trainings create conditions for positive change in the workplace. It can permeate an entire culture.

Empathy, an innate ability we are born with, can be practiced and improved.

One of the major benefits of the ARISE evidence based life skills group facilitator  (instructor) training is that participants develop empathy and truly understand what the that youth we work with are magnets for disappointment, lies, abuse and pain. Taking part in ARISE groups could be their last chance in their struggle for personal survival. Evidence based studies have shown that by developing relationships in ARISE groups offers opportunities for both group facilitator and youth.  “What ever happened in group stays in group” (other than serious infractions) also increases the level of trust between the ARISE Life Skills Group Facilitator and troubled youth
