10 Circle of Courage Once behavioral expectations are taught, regular reinforcement is provided to youth who demonstrate the desired behaviors Reinforcement is provided through the use of “courage slips” as positive acknowledgement of the demonstrated behavior or value

11 Circle of Courage Reinforcement:
Attempt to provide 4/1 or 5/1 positives to negatives in working with youth Courage slips are used ONLY as positive reinforcement-slips would not be given as a note of the absence of something, or as a notation of not demonstrating expected behavior

12 Circle of Courage Activities that celebrate achievement and support recognition of desired behaviors are held throughout campus These include monthly awards assembly, positive week rewards activities, special outings, a COC store where youth may purchase items

13 Circle of Courage Circle of Courage programs should embody a welcoming environment where dignity, respect, and kindness are the values we live by and demonstrate to others, both youth and staff, throughout all levels of the organization By establishing environments within our milieus that support these values, and provide a culture of support, this goal will be achieved
