“In Tatitlek, I taught an activity from the Strength Based Curriculum that asked the kids to pick an animal to represent them. The kids had some really mature, supportive conversations with each other about this. Afterwards, we had them draw self-portraits that focused on their strengths–they were all talented artists.” – Taylor, Program Staff
