MT Lions Club Provided Lunch At Quest Training Workshop

Quest 008 - Crop

On January 10, the Manheim Township Lions Club provided lunch and break refreshments for the Lions Quest Training Workshop held at Compass Mark in Lancaster, PA.  There were approximately 10 teachers in attendance from the Lancaster area with an instructor from Lions Clubs International

The workshop  introduced the new Skills for Adolescence for Out-of-School-Time (SFA-OST) curriculum adapted from Lions Quest’s highly-rated middle school curriculum to provide staff with a positive youth development program that meets the unique demands of out-of-school time settings.  The program is comprised of 33 social and emotional learning lessons, five service-learning lessons, three online bullying prevention lessons, 116 reinforcement activities, and numerous relationship-centered learning community strategies and activities. These selections, combined with newly-created implementation tools, align with the six common elements of high-quality OST programming, recognized by researchers and practitioners as having the most influence on positive outcomes for young people.  Included with the program manual is a copy of the Changes and Challenges student activity book. A program supplement is available for those who already have the full SFA curriculum.

We also donated two Out-of-School-Time Lions Quest curriculum books to Compass Mark at a cost of $180.

2013 marks the ninth year that the Manheim Township Lions Club in partnership with the Manheim Township Leo Club and Lions district 14-D has donated Lion's Quest Skills for Adolescence curriculum materials to the Manheim Township School District.
