WHY CARE? The bad news

Brief info, links to state of the world page

Schools underperforming. Skills. Bullying, shaming, violence, boring, …

Having a suboptimal time in our daily co-living apartment. For ten+ years. Geez, that shd be better!

WHY CARE? The good news

Schools is all young people’s daily hangout.

The one and only place to reach all youth, daily, for ten+ years – and enable them to learn, implement and grow up in real-time live collaboration with today’s Gandhis and Gryffindores. That’s historic!

In 16,000 schools already. Teachers, students, parents, partners, media, everybody loves it.

"This is what school should always be like"

“… said all teachers attending my LEVEL UP! Sessions for 3 groups at 3 schools, all different. I have intuitively adapted the methods for each. Each said they are inspired and wish me to return for a session on taking action. I am not a teacher, and did not expect to be this welcome at school. Everything turned out precisely as Eric prophesized. His guidance has been excellent. I have complete trust in this process.” – Matthias, Germany

"The most energized lesson of my career"

“Even the quiet ones had something to say. Students are inspired and ask how they can get involved.” – Korea

"The posters were a smash hit with the students"

“You should have been there. The principal was delighted. We are keeping the exhibit up for Peace Week. – Pravani, India

"The Project Day's best was the exhibit"

“…all students and teachers agree. The skype session inspired the principal to decide for youth leadership courses for all 8th graders next semester.” – Holger, Germany

"My English for Adults class ..."

“usually just wants to flirt. But they got hooked on the cardgame. It has been the most intense session in my career. Everybody was super focussed and eager to explain their hero’s tale to their partner. And – exactly as Eric told me: everybody finds favorite hero*ines from their specific angle of interest. After class, a business man stopped to tell me how impressed he was by Gabrielle’s entrepreneurial thinking. It’s magic.” – Gzegorz, Poland

"This should be at all schools"

There is zero question that every child today must grow up with this. We really need this in Russia. We need it everywhere. Thank you for doing what you do, and giving us opportunity to do this for our children” – Tatyana, Russia

Informal and Transformational Learning take place in every sphere of life. It is mostly outside school that inspiration and information are turned into practice – at relevant depth and time to achieve effect. This is true for sport, for health, for art. It is also true for changemaking. Together we use the potentials of school to the max – which is fabulous… 8 hours daily, in class, clubs, projects… but there are also other spaces for youth leaders to APPLY their skills and  EDUCATE OTHERS – in the family, in public, in media … to educate and empower the general public. Hence, expand your vision and area of operation to the grand public by using specific activities and occasions perfectly fit for use in eudcational context.

OK, since teachers like result- & test-orientation …

LET’S MAKE A PLAN

to score a “pass” – as students, teacher & school!

Let’s remember the PURPOSE OF SCHOOLING : to educate able, active, caring citizens!

So put our worries about our busy lives aside for a moment. This stuff is happening at thousands of schools already (rich or poor, failing or famous), and you have hope to achieve your adult and professional aspirations for giving the young generation the proper knowledge heart and skills and contacts they need to achieve … in this critical time of shifting to the next level good sustainable civilization.

I am super confident that you can do, rather swiftly, and will enjoy it … especially seeing the many surprising sparks among students awakening to their hero*ine selves. Simply begin with the first steps. And let enthusiasm and positive feedback carry you. If it becomes hard and dire, drop it! It’s not meant to be hard or put extra strain and stress on teachers. But give it that try. You know you owe it to yourself. 

Me and the hero*ines are here to help you as best as we can. And remember … all these steps are prepared, simple, tuned to be a win-win to what you’re doing anyway, subjects and special occasions. At very least, you’ll experience more interested and smiling students. At very best, you’re sparking flocks of Gryffindores to spend your life with and watch them transform your entire city, region and beyond for your next thirty to sixty years. 

I’d say that’s some neat motivation. So get rolling, and learn from the hero kids: 

“Banish the terms impossible and hopeless from your vocabulary. We can change the world. And WE teams at 16,000 schools are proving it every day.” – Craig Kielburger
