Kind Campus Kick-Off
Saturday, August 20th
9:00AM – 11:30AM
Join us for The Importance of Kindness: A BioPsychoSocial Model, where we’ll kick-off Kind Campus activities for the 2022-23 school year and talk about strategies for building an enthusiastic and engaged Kind Campus.
Recognizing that educators impact students’ development both in and out of the classroom, we’ll be focusing on the importance of practicing kindness in all areas of our lives, as well as the interconnection between the physical, psychological, and social aspects of our kindness practice. Based on cutting-edge research around the importance of school culture and building social-emotional skills, Kind Campus empowers administrators, staff, teachers, students, and their families to create safe and engaging school communities.
This year our kick-off will be held at the Southern Arizona Arts & Cultural Alliance’s Catalyst Arts & Creative Space! Join us as we explore evidence-based strategies for using Kind Campus, introduce new materials for the year, and prepare educators to infuse kindness throughout their schools. You’ll meet our education team and hear from our Founder, Jeannette Maré, in her role as a kindness researcher. You’ll also hear from fellow educators who are currently utilizing the Kind Campus program.
We’re grateful for the work that you do for our students, schools, communities, and families. Together we are changing our culture. We look forward to seeing you in this exciting new community space!
*Certificates of Completion available for professional development upon request.
