Be Ready To See Their Perspectives

We believe it is critical for coaches to understand the emotions and feelings of youth in under-resourced communities, many of whom have faced systemic inequalities. Some of these experiences like discrimination, economic hardship, racism and exposure to violence can many times result in toxic stress, a condition that can lead to lifelong problems in learning, behavior, and physical and mental health.

Fortunately, research indicates that supportive, responsive, relationships with caring adults such as a teacher or a coach can prevent or reverse the damaging effects of toxic stress response.

This course teaches coaches how to appreciate the perspective of kids to connect with them and to create positive outcomes together.
