We are excited to announce that the annual AmeriCorps WV Conference will be held from Oct. 26-Oct. 29, 2021. As of 9/7/21, the decision has been made for the Conference to be held virtually to eliminate risk associated with gathering in large groups and spreading COVID-19 and variants. As of this date, the entire state of West Virginia is considered to be 'red' for high risk of community transmission on both CDC and DHHR maps. Conference participants will have the opportunity to participate in virtual workshops through Zoom on Tuesday and Wednesday, and training and networking opportunities on Thursday and Friday, also on Zoom. 

Please keep an eye on our Conference Webpage (coming soon!) for the latest updates. All registrants and AmeriCorps Program Staff will also receive any updates via email.

Training Description: There have been substantial increases in stress and anxiety for students due to the recent pandemic. Research demonstrates that teaching students a meaning making system such as a growth mindset can assist in compensating for the negative effects of traumatic events. This session will help participants at all skill levels understand the connections between growth mindset and the protective factors that help children develop resilience. The session will provide participants with a number of creative ideas that can be used as universal and targeted interventions to assist both individual students and groups of students. Participants will leave the session with an easy-to-use Social Emotional Learning toolkit that has age-appropriate mentoring strategies to support student mental health.
