Empowered Education Training Program
We all want to be our absolute best and want the same for any young people in our lives. As teachers, administrators and youth workers you have an amazing opportunity to make a huge difference in the lives of youth. But it can be incredibly challenging to be a good positive influence for your pupils if you are not balanced and empowered in your own life first.
Empowered Education is a staff training program that was developed by Vicki Savini & Michael Eisen to educate, enlighten and empower educators and youth workers to be their absolute best so they can show up in a more positive, supportive and empowering way for the youth that they work with. Our program has three tenets: 1) Inspire the educator to live the most empowered version of themselves. 2) Understand the youth they work with. 3) Educate from empowerment.
What We Do:
- Teach staff members to release tension, calm the nervous system, reduce stress levels and re-energize.
- Share tools and philosophies for mental, emotional and physical well-being.
- Engage participants with thoughtful activities around understanding themselves and their students.
- Provide insights for how to connect with youth in a more compassionate and empathetic way.
- Provide simple and practical tools and strategies for educating from a place of empowerment
Each workshop is customized to meet your staff needs. We find that experiential learning is most effective and offers lasting effects.
Benefits of the Program:
- Reduced stress, tension and nerves so you can show up more fully for your students
- Increased energy and happiness levels
- Feel more empowered to make good healthy choices
- More engaged, productive and attentive students
- Stronger community feeling within your environment
Your students emulate your words and actions. The more balanced and empowered you are in your own life, the more that will rub off on them creating a ripple effect amongst them. The better you feel about yourself, the easier it will be to empower them to make good choices that will lead to happier, healthier and more successful lives.
