WhyTry?

What is WhyTry?

The WhyTry Program is a resilience education curriculum that provides simple, hands-on solutions for dropout prevention, violence prevention, truancy reduction, and increased academic success.  The idea is straightforward: Teach social and emotional principles to youth in a way they can understand and remember. WhyTry is based on sound empirical principles, including solution-focused brief therapy, social and emotional intelligence, and multisensory learning.

The WhyTry Level 1 Training is a two-day course that will prepare you to use the WhyTry Program in a real-world setting. The course includes a discussion of WhyTry’s ten visual analogies, an introduction to WhyTry music, a peek at several of WhyTry’s learning activities, opportunities to practice teaching through role-play, as well as a discussion of how to apply the program in your specific setting.
