Professional Development for Educators and Adults Who Work with Youth.
Our workshops help educators, and others who work with youth, to build classroom communities and environments which model an inclusive culture that promotes student and youth agency and well-being.
We focus primarily on shifting adult perception and behavior so that adults and children can build relationship and integrate new practices into classrooms, homes, schools, districts, and communities. Our programs support comprehensive, deep, and resilient cultural change.
We offer online, in-person, and hybrid model workshops. You can find more information below, on our Workshops & Events page, or contact us to talk about bringing a workshop to your school or organization.
