Valo: lighting a pathway to teen connection

Here's a little background on why we wrote this book...


We love exploring as much as getting lost. Sometimes, though, we want a guide to lead us, to show us what to look for, and different paths that could lead to interesting places. That’s where this book shines. Part research, part hands-on field journal, here is a smart, reader-friendly resource for adults who want to help teens grow up healthy and happy. It combines the latest (and our own) research with creative, connecting exercises we’ve honed through youth retreats over the past eight years. Our hope for this book is to help ignite the sparks within youth across Maine, and far beyond.
