EMPOWER Forwards

CHOOSE WHAT SCHOOL MEANS

School doesn’t have to be something done to students, as if it’s an assembly line and they’re products. Instead, they can learn to see school as something they actively do, as if it’s a workshop and they’re artisans crafting their own lives, guided by their own values. 

On this site and in our workshops, you’ll find tools to help you EMPOWER students. Help them notice how their assignments and interactions can be opportunities to enact their values, and to choose values-consistent behaviors even when it’s hard.

Even when students can’t change what school is, they can change what school means.
