The Power of One!
across the world, students are inspiring students to improve the culture of their school by changing the quality of their social climate
The Power of One is a school wide event with a unique approach in taking on the day to day barriers blocking student success. Students and staff are actively engaged throughout the day in a series of workshops built to honor the differences within their school and empower everyone to pursue a more unified culture. What makes this day effective is the Ignite team partners with a diverse, untraditional group of student mentors and school untraditional. These students learn the skills needed to transform their schools in a positive way.
Connecting the dots between individuality and belonging
Powered by student voice, this day was designed to help schools realize that the success of everyone's goals depends your ability to work together! The day creates opportunities for everyone to see each other with a new perspective to celebrate the differences that enrich our community and to recognize that diversity is strength. This day is about inspiring hope and action!
Create a culture & climate of social, emotional and academic success
Student mentors are trained to facilitate, manage, and debrief real conversations about self awareness, healthy relationships, accountability, self belief, positive and negative self talk, and safety. When mentors realize that their greatest tool is their self confidence to speak what's right, they create a safe space that nurtures all students. Staff and educators love this unique experience with their students.
Learning from one another, staff play a new role in the day as participants as they gain new insight into the lives of their students. And vice versa! Our breakouts were co-created with schools to act as vehicles to deeper, more personal discussions. And its these discussions that become the equalizer for your entire learning community.
This day is just the beginning!
