I am leading a group of local educators and youth development specialists who are interested in training teenagers in the NEAR sciences (neuroscience, epigenetics, ACEs, & resiliency). We are hoping to eventually create a curriculum that teen leaders could present to their peers in a peer-to-peer model. Do you know of anyone doing this work?
Are there others doing presentations/trainings on ACEs with teen audiences? If so, how have you adapted the curriculum to be developmentally appropriate for teenagers? Did you involve teenagers in the development of the curriculum/materials?
We are also looking for a researcher who is interested in this work and/or other community efforts to address ACEs.
Thank you for your support and any assistance you can provide with these requests.
