Weigh 2 Change

Weigh 2 Change is a structured program developed specifically to prevent type 2 diabetes. Trained lifestyle coaches from the NDSU Extension Service lead the program to help you change certain aspects of your lifestyle like eating healthier, reducing stress, and getting more physical activity. The program also includes group support from others who share your goals and struggles. This is not a fad diet or an exercise class. And it’s not a quick fix. It’s a year long program focused on long-term changes and lasting results. A year might sound like a long commitment, but learning new habits, gaining new skills, and building confidence takes time.

Addressing Bullying in Out-of-School Youth Development Programs

Youth Development Brown Bag Webinar

Sue Quamme, 4-H Youth Development Specialist, Center for 4-H Youth Development, NDSU Extension & Amelia Doll, Burleigh County Extension Agent

Research on bullying prevention and interventions in school settings is very common, but there is very little research about these behaviors outside of school. This webinar will look at current bully prevention research and identify parts of this research that can be applied to out-of-school youth development programs. Participants will gain an understanding of bullying prevention strategies useful for all ages and stages of youth in out-of-school programs. We will also take a look at how relational aggression, a form of bullying, can be identified and addressed.
