TEB Skills for youth development organizations: Strengthening organizational capacity

Connecticut Opportunity Project

In Connecticut, more than one in five youth are disengaged or disconnected from high school. Youth who are disengaged and disconnected often face significant stress, adverse events, and emotional challenges. Cognitive behavioral skills can help disengaged and disconnected youth regulate emotions and build resilience.

In partnership with Dalio Philanthropies, we aim to strengthen the capacity of the three Connecticut Opportunity Project partners to deliver their services with excellence by providing the organizations’ staff evidence-based training and coaching on how to deliver cognitive behavioral skills to youth.

PRIDE Summer Scholars Internship

During challenging times, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, it is more important than ever to dedicate efforts to support emotional wellness amongst our most vulnerable populations such as urban youth.

In collaboration with the Center of Excellence for Psychosocial and Systemic Research, PRIDE is hosting a 4-week summer internship program to introduce 150 youth to science-driven skills for building resilience and supporting emotional wellness. Interns will be tasked with learning the TEB (Thoughts, Emotions, and Behaviors) skills and developing creative ideas about how to share these skills with other young people. The internship program is led by Orin Gutlerner, the Direction of Education at the PRIDE Training Institute and a long-time educator with over 20 years of experience.
