Paying Attention on Purpose: Building a Mindful and Engaged Kind Campus

What does it mean to be present and mindful in our daily lives? How can we help our students focus better and regulate behavior through understanding how the “Kind Mind” works? Join us for this year’s Kindness Conference, where we will talk about strategies for building a mindful, and engaged kind campus. Based on cutting-edge research around building social-emotional skills, Kind Campus empowers all school community members, including administrators, staff, teachers, and students to create safe and engaging school communities.

This year we are offering 2 Tucson sessions of our Kindness conference. (The programming will be the same at all conferences.) In breakout sessions, we will explore evidence-based strategies for using Kind Campus, and you will leave with a plan sketched out for how to strengthen kindness at your school.

We are grateful for the work that you do for our students, schools, communities, and families. Please join us!
