The Montana Summer Insitute 2023 – The Paradox of the Positive: Preventing Harm by Promoting Health

TOGETHER! for Youth is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization providing prevention services to Chelan & Douglas County youth.

A couple of our team members traveled to Big Sky, MT the week of June 20th to attend the Montana Summer Institute at the Big Sky Resort. Speakers included Dr. Jeff Linkenbach, John Noltner (Author, Photographer, Speaker and Founder of “A Peace of My Mind”), Stephanie Patton, Sara Thompson, Ben Tanzer, and Jason Kilmer, just to name a few.

The Science of the Positive focuses on how positive factors impact culture and experience, honing in on how to measure and grow the positive. It is based on the core assumption that the the positive is real and is worth growing. Once speaker posed the following question: “What are our community members doing to bring support to those who are struggling?” and followed it up with: “SHINE A LIGHT ON IT!”

Overall, a great week with powerful content, engaging speaker, new connections, delicious food and beautfiul scenery!
