The end of the program will culminate with a world class virtual magic show to celebrate your spirit of generosity.

 

How does it work? Choose from a list of service activities, complete your project, share your pictures by Oct 15th and then join in a World class virtual magic show on Oct 25th at 6:30 PM to celebrate all the magic created through service .

September 29, 2020 | 7:00 P.m. | Online Webinar | 

 

Chase was moments away from quitting teaching — a career he loved. He was
burned out, bitter, and beaten by the external challenges of modern education. But he didn’t quit. He doubled-down, using the same science of well-being he had taught his students for over a decade.

In this engaging, humorous, and heartfelt talk, Chase shares his experience as a veteran educator and provides key insights on how the science of small, positive moments creates thriving adults, learners, and communities.
Parents and educators will leave feeling empowered to take care of themselves, so they can better take care of the young adults who need them.

Learning Outcomes:
OPTIMISM – Refocus on our purpose in order to reignite our love for
teaching and parenting
OWNERSHIP – Take control of our own well-being through simple,
research-based actions that boost purpose and happiness
MINDFULNESS – Be present and turn minor moments into major momentum to
thrive personally and professionally
COMMUNITY – Cultivate positive relationships with kids and adults to build
supportive and resilient cultures.
