Introducing Soul Shoppe
Soul Shoppe has been working actively in schools for the last six years and is created by founders Joseph Savage and Vicki Abadesco! who are seasoned educators with over 30 years of experience working with youth and adults. Soul Shoppe provides interactive assembly programs that teaches students important skills to support them academically and emotionally through life.
The skills will focus on problem-solving, conflict resolution, creating a community of learning and growth and defining and internalizing the character traits that create great communities and citizens.
The objectives for the program:
- Creating Optimal Learning Environments: A foundation of Respect
- Personal Empowerment: Awareness around choices we make
- Skill Building: To navigate life powerfully
- Community Enhancement: Promote empathy and high level of functioning for all
- Joyful Living: Encourage a sense of freedom in all we do.
Throughout the year, we will have grade level workshops focused on a particular
character trait. We start with Respect and Responsibility as the foundation. For a list of monthly traits, check with your school calendar. We encourage the parents and families to check out the monthly workshops and learn with us.
In addition to the whole school assemblies, the Peace Program will train 30 student Peacemakers (grades 3-5) who will support their student peers in resolving conflicts in and out of the classroom. The Peacemakers will receive a four-part leadership training where they will learn communication tools and conflict resolution skills.
We are looking forward to a fantastic, safe and productive year!For more information about Soul Shoppe check out http://www.soulshoppe.com/ or call us at (415)334-0463.Click here for a Spanich version Introducción Soul Shoppe.
