    Dear Educators:
    The neuroscience is simple: we can't learn when we're stressed. So how can schools help teachers and students process all that the emotions they are feeling right now and shift from despair and uncertainty, to hope and determination?
    Over the last three months, World Leadership School has helped teachers prepare for the new school year with our Reimagine Learning Workshop. This virtual workshop creates the space for teachers to process emotion, empathize with new student needs, and explore case studies of COVID-19 school innovation. Teachers work together in teams to design classroom innovations and shift emotional states. "This workshop gave me hope to think beyond, be creative, and be joyful about teaching," said one teachers from North Shore Country Day School (Winnetka, IL). 
    We are proud to announce the Youth Purpose Summit, a 3-day virtual workshop that can plus into an existing student advisory block. Over the course of three 2-hour sessions, students explore identity, connect with each other, and set action goals as they build a "Purpose Map." Along the way, students explore the theory and science of purpose and engage their parents in key activities at home. This workshop comes with a workbook that can be customized according the school's own goals and activities. We rolled out the first prototype of this experience in this past June with 80 students at Norfolk Academy (Norfolk, VA). The experience is based on the Youth Action Accelerator conferences that WLS has organized for youth in cities around the world. "The experience deeply impacted our students and set them up for a purposeful summer and year," said Sean Wetmore, Norfolk Academy's Director of the Batten Leadership Program.
    Be well,
