  • EVERYONE SHOULD BE ON BOARD  An expectation for a positive environment must be established by the program, each campus, each Youth Leader, each family, and each student.

  • MATERIALS FOR GETTING STARTED CONT. “Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you'll start having positive results.” -Willie Nelson  Give your Youth Leaders your expectations to remain positive. If you are positive it will trickle down to the Youth Leader which in turn will trickle down to the children, then to their siblings, their parents, this programs is for the entire community.
  • THE ENERGY BUS HAS TO BE POSITIVE  It’s easy to get caught up in negativity throughout the day.  Positivity is crucial for a successful program. Don’t let the traffic ruin your day. Don’t MAJOR in MINOR things. Negativity vs. Positivity http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EQyNN2SfPwQ
  • THE PROGRAM  Youth Leaders present a 10 day lesson plan with extended activities (optional)  Each lesson tends to be Project Based  Can be connected with Lights On!, Read Across America, and Parent Events.
  • NORTHSIDE LEARNING TREE: LIGHTS ON!  The Energy Bus was read to the students  Youth Leaders delivered the 10 day lesson plan  THEN the students created fun projects and presentations and presented to parents for Lights On! Parent event.
  • THE ENERGY BUS IS VERSATILE FOR ALL GRADES  Often times programs such as these aren’t adaptable throughout the age groups but The Energy Bus is.  Each grade had their own projects designed, by the youth leaders, for each grade level.  All children created bus tickets as an invitation for their parents to attend the Lights On! Parent event.
