“One high school’s unlikely story of success.”

“One high school’s unlikely story of success.”

Paper Tigers follows a year in the life of an alternative high school that has radically changed its approach to disciplining its students, becoming a promising model for how to break the cycles of poverty, violence and disease that affect families.

Join us for the screening followed by a panel of community stakeholder and leaders discussing resilience building opportunities in Syracuse, NY. What would a trauma sensitive approach look like and how it could impact students in the Syracuse City School District. *Film has explicit language*

Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) cause trauma that affects health and education. Trauma shows up as behavior in and out of the classroom. By using ACEs to identify sources of trauma we build resilient students and families leading to academic success.

Resilient CNY is a collaboration between Sanchia A Callender Inc, Art Music People, and NeuroDiversity Consulting, raising awareness of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and the impact of trauma across Central New York communities. We work to bring a trauma sensitive approach to all areas of our communities building a stronger more vibrant Central New York.

Support for this project has been made possible by a “What If…” mini-grant from the Gifford Foundation.
