I speak to students, parents, and entrepreneurs at
schools, conferences, companies, and non-profit organizations.
Love is real to teens, and they are curious about it. And, research indicates that they are looking for guidance and need reliable information on self-love, relationships, and sexual health if they are going to have joyful romantic lives.
Comprehensive sexual health education isn't just about anatomy, birth control, and STDS. Kimberly Wolf's Love Class (TM) provides adolescents with relatable, relevant lessons on everything from boundary-setting, to breakups, to how to find credible information and meaningful support related to sexual health issues.
Accounting for the fact that each organization approaches sexual health education from a unique perspective, I work with schools to personalize messaging to align with schools' core beliefs.
Love Class™ for parents helps bridge the communication gaps that emerge around these delicate topics.
THE FATHER-DAUGHTER EFFECT™
The complexities of the teen years can strain parent-child relationships, and this is particularly true for fathers adjusting to the emotional and physical transformations of their daughters’ middle school and high school years. Fathers are often left feeling out-of-touch, confused, and at a loss for what to do and say.
These fact-packed sessions offer insights most fathers aren’t getting anywhere else. Participants will leave with an essential knowledge base and new communication tools.
Topics covered include girls’ psychology and culture, the roles of fathers, building father-daughter connections, and how fathers can support healthy self-concepts and social development in their daughters.
INTO THE BLUE LIGHT™
Today’s teenagers are digital natives, many consuming 9+ hours of media per day on their smartphones, laptops, and tablets, but they don't often understand how the content they are sharing online is stored, connected, and found by others. The risks and potential consequences of reckless and short-sighted online behavior are evident. But if harnessed effectively, the Internet can also help young people get ahead in their daily lives, during the college admissions process, and throughout their careers.
Presented by Kimberly Wolf, M.Ed., and Carolynn Crabtree, two media-savvy, Ivy League grads who have successfully navigated the college admissions process and multiple job application efforts, Into the Blue Light (ITBL) educational programs draw from the latest research on adolescent media use, expert perspectives from admissions officers and employers, and best practices in online reputation management.
Combining a refreshing, positive tone with next-generation strategies, ITBL presentations guide students, parents, and educators on topics including:
Managing everyday social media use.
Navigating tricky social media interactions.
Avoiding the spread of negative content.
Understanding when, how, and why life's major gatekeepers search applicants online and what can affect their perceptions. This information comes from surveying hundreds of admissions officers, a thousand college coaches, and employers from a wide swath of industries.
Using search results to put your best foot forward when admissions officers and employers conduct online searches.
ITBL programs are essential for schools and community organizations helping teens prepare for success in a digital world.
