Balancing Hope and Concern! July 12th, 2019

The Montana Institute is honored to be partnering with the Forsyth Youth Drug Awareness Council and the amazing prevention effort they’re bringing to the community!!!

This one-day only free seminar on July 12th from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Lanier Conference Center will engage high school age attendees in several activities rooted in the Science of the Positive framework and Positive Community Norms. Together we will learn to uncover positive truths about ourselves and the communities we serve.
