    Become a Listener/Oyente
     
    A Listener is a supportive special adult, not a fixer, rescuer or advisor.  The goal of the Listener is to join the student’s world without judgment.  Listeners are not expected to solve the student’s problems.  The Listener is there to help build a student’s positive self-esteem and empower the student to develop their own excellent problem-solving skills.

    Listeners listen once a week for thirty minutes per student.  Listeners are greatly needed at Miami Beach Senior High as we no longer  have the staff position of Trust Counselor.

    All Listeners have the opportunity to participate in an intensive training session offered at various locations throughout the school year and monthly workshops to sharpen their listening skills.  For more information about the Listeners/Oyentes Program please visit- http://www.listenersprogram.org/index.htm
