62 - Put the Student in Control!

Saturday, Nov 11
12:00 PM – 1:00 PM

Gifted learners of all ages are often hyper-aware of local and global current events, and many gifted students are overly sensitive to their own personal situations. As President Obama has told his own daughters, “The world doesn’t end until it does.” However, many highly gifted students experience increased levels of anxiety and lack proper guidance. As these students develop awareness to the threats of the future, they often feel the need to take action. Life skills and thinking tools must be provided to handle these global and personal threatening situations. Let’s turn these students into effective leaders who can solve problems of the future!
