Your Path Begins with You

What if we could inspire every child to become their personal best - creating the social norm that CARING for YOURSELF and OTHERS is COOL?

Founding Story: Share a story about a key experience or spark that helps the network understand why this project got started or a story about how you became inspired about the potential for this project to succeed.

When you engage a student in their growth, they will grow. When you give students the tools and support, they will grow. When a student feels included and respected, they will become the best version of them self. Caring starts with self-care. Kids need the tools to learn how to self-monitor to properly grow. We are piloting our new school program in two states that is designed to help schools, and build stronger students to export into the society. We are using a team of educators and experts.

Problem: What problem is this project trying to address?

We are passionate about helping kids learn how to self-care through self-monitoring. And self-care begins with learning all about your self. Today, schools do not have the tools to adequately teach this. We have partnered with another company to provide the technology to actively engage kids in self-monitoring. Our program organizes a school so that every child IS included and that their unique self is valued and respected.

Great concept. Helping kids build self-awareness can be a key driver of emotional wellbeing. It would be interesting to see more details on how the program works and how you plan to evaluate it. Best of luck.

Hi Patti,  though I'm able to sense your passion about you project , I'd also like to share your passion.   The details of impact, model and implementation were so vague that I didn't get a good feel for the depth of the work.  Should you consider whether this public/community forum is the right arena for your idea?  There are great contributors and collaborators here... I hope you're able to find a comfort level that enables your to share more - thank you for being a change maker!

Hello Patti! I'm glad you submitted your idea. I'd like to just give you some feedback. I would love to hear the "HOW" of your story and the origins of your proposal. Also, I unfortunately did not get a feel for exactly what the project will be doing. I understand that you are very passionate about helping kids but I would suggest using less we/our statements when defining the problem. I was not able to get a feel for your project. I am certain you have great intentions, simply define it more clearly for the world to see. Good luck!
