Statewide initiative aims to help at-risk girls | StAugustine.com

Susan Remmer-Ryzewic remembered being a young girl with growing pains and how a teacher reached out to help.It was an act of kindness that she said changed the course of her life.“Girls need people to step up and make that difference in their lives as they struggle with the harsh realities of the world,” said Remmer-Ryzewic, president and CEO of Ponte Vedra Beach-based EHR Investments Inc.That’s why Remmer-Ryzewic and her sisters organized the First Coast Girls Initiative in 2001 to advocate for at-risk girls. It’s why she recently helped launch a new statewide initiative, Voices for Florida Girls, designed to bring to the forefront and find solutions for issues that inhibit at-risk girls from reaching their potential.In June she told her childhood story at the kickoff, which brought together about 50 area civic and business leaders. They are now spreading the word about the initiative via networking and their Facebook pages, among other things.The next step is to get people to join the process, in which they will first learn the obstacles that face girls today and the “best practices” intervention programs available to help them, said Linda Alexionok. She is director of Voices for Florida, the nonprofit leading the charge, and executive director of The Children’s Campaign, a Florida watchdog group.After the “know” period, residents will share the information they learned with their community, civic and church groups; help the nonprofit get area-wide discussions going about programs and funding; and provide grassroots leadership to get them implemented, Alexionok said.At-risk girls are the focus because 33 percent of the referrals to the juvenile justice system are girls, but there is a “disparity of services” for them, with only 5 percent of resources directed to their needs, Alexionok said Continue reading

Build self-confidence | USSD Karate, Palo Alto

Build self-confidenceWe teach the younger generation self-discipline and self-confidence. Martial arts training strengthens all the muscle groups, improves flexibility and coordination, and promotes mental toughness and perseverance. Improved self-esteem is a natural byproduct of this. Our martial arts training program can be helpful to children with physical challenges and to those with behavioral problems or personality traits that have made it difficult for them to succeed at other sports. Children who don’t seem to thrive in team sports often succeed in martial arts.Some parents may wonder if the martial arts encourage aggressive and show-off behavior. We have found that a shy child is energized by learning martial arts; an energetic child finds a new sense of calm. A bully finds out that he isn’t as tough as he thought he was.Our instructors are very clear that the skills you learn are for self-defense, not for attacking others Continue reading

To Strengthen Your Confidence, Look to Your Past – Amy Jen Su …

To Strengthen Your Confidence, Look to Your Pastby Amy Jen Su and Muriel Maignan Wilkins | 11:00 AM April 11, 2013Confidence. It is an attribute we seek to have and look for in others, especially those in positions of leadership. Yet, time and time again, we meet executives who lack a confident presence. (We also encounter those who are overly confident — to the point that they are blinded by it — but that is a topic for another time). Continue reading

English Tutoring Programs Build Self-Confidence in Latino Children …

The learning cottage in Greenleigh began as a vision to increase the English-speaking skills of about 300 Hispanic children who live in the trailer parkAcademic assistance center plants the seeds of self-confidenceApril 02–Dante Jemison, a fifth-grade student at Elizabeth Scott Elementary School in Chesterfield County, bounded into the Greenleigh Instructional Learning Cottage last week after a grueling day of Standards of Learning testing.He didn’t have any homework assignments to complete during the hourlong tutoring session on Tuesday afternoon, but that didn’t mean he could goof off or play games. Other youngsters still had schoolwork to finish.The fifth-grader spent 20 minutes reading from the book “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” — eagerly waiting for tutor Pegi Spriggs to sign off on his reading when he finished — then assisted 8-year-old Aliaha Wright with her math homework.”We don’t want you to sit here and play,” said Spriggs, a teacher at Elizabeth Scott and a volunteer at Greenleigh. “As much as we love games — and there is value in the games — we’re after the academics here.”It was business as usual at the learning cottage, a double-wide trailer that serves as a classroom/community center for academic assistance to elementary and middle school students living in the Greenleigh Mobile Home Park off Jefferson Davis Highway in Chester.The tutoring program that began last fall in the sprawling 513-lot Greenleigh trailer park was an instant success.On its first day, nearly 60 students signed up, but because of size limitations, only 15 students can participate in the six-week sessions. In addition to the tutoring, the after-school program includes lessons on soccer and life skills with First Touch Sports.It was recently recognized by the Virginia School Boards Association in its 17th annual Showcases for Success directory, which highlights successful K-12 programs in Virginia’s public schools.”It’s all about relationships,” said Joan Temple, principal at Elizabeth Scott. “It’s all about building relationships, and you can just see the confidence level of our kids improving.

EduKick Soccer Academies Build Intercultural Competence …

Here at EduKick we pride ourselves on the added value student players receive while attending one of our International Academy programs.It is easy for parents and students to recognize the Elite level soccer coaching and development that players receive when looking for an Academy as well as the structured academic courses that allow participants to continue their studies.But what really sets EduKick apart from other academies is the attention given to intercultural competence and life skills that provide EduKick Academy student-players with benefits extending far beyond the program.We work hard to build more into a student than great soccer skills and a solid education.Qualities, such as self-discipline, are taught in every aspect of our programs, encouraging the students see the end-game of life as well as soccer.Through our soccer and education academies, we seek to develop character, independence and most importantly for future soccer players – intercultural competence.Intercultural competence begins with understanding and appreciating the differences in cultures. Our academies encourage the independence that travel outside of a student’s home country brings. It also exposes them to new experiences, and the ability to navigate and communicate within another country and culture.Eighty percent of EduKick International Academy participants are from different cultures and backgrounds so as well as the country where the academy is located participants have the opportunity to gain knowledge and experience of the cultures of their teammates.Every EduKick program includes language learning.Whether participants are attending a summer camp, Year Long program, or just visiting as part of a team or group tour, we provide language lessons.Through these lessons, they have the opportunity to learn the basics or become proficient in the language of the country they are visiting.All the training student-players receive through EduKick results in a new self-assurance, not only in who they are, but in their ability to function and make friends in another country.Building intercultural confidence helps them to follow through on their goals and dreams.An excellent example of these results is Vyankatesh Kharage, who was inspired to open his own academy back home after his experience with us.Vyankatesh Kharage, from India, attended the EduKick England Academy for the Year Long program 2011/12.Read his letter to EduKick below and visit his website here!“The year I spent at the Edukick England Academy was one of my best experiences so far. The state-of-art facilities and the coaches helped me to become the player I am today.During the academic BTEC Sport science classes I learned a lot about sports and fitness, which I implement in the sessions of my academy.It was also nice to be recognized for my hard work by EduKick England staff and to receive the Student of the Year award. It gave me great confidence.As part of the program I had the opportunity to obtain the English FA level 1 coaching badge, and while doing this I realized I could use the certificate to coach kids back in India.The experience of being part of the EduKick England Academy with student players from all around the world was amazing Continue reading
