A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

The whole of each child’s development – mind, body, and spirit – is at risk in public education. There is a growing view of children primarily as individual receivers of information, and not as active and creative producers of collective knowledge and value. Children deserve to see the world through a lens of cultural sensitivity and global awareness, where special populations and typically developing students are understood to have the same potential. Teachers need to be trained with the tools to inspire and motivate all of their students, regardless of background or ability.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

National Dance Institute’s In-School Program demonstrates that children with special needs can – and should – receive the same opportunities as typically developing children, and that they can achieve success alongside each other. We harness the power of the arts with dance and music experiences that reach every child through weekly classes during the school day in public schools throughout New York City. Our teaching artists treat special populations with the same expectations as they do the general education students we teach, through energetic instruction that transcends barriers of language, culture, and physical and cognitive challenges to engage each child in joyful and rigorous participatory experiences. Active group participation and performance in dance, music, and art is our vehicle to unlock empathy.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Several of our unique In-School Program partnerships are models of inclusion and collective achievement where NDI teaching artists unlock in children the power to lead through understanding and compassion.

At Lighthouse International Music School, high school-age NDI alums serve as sighted guide partners for visually impaired students, ages 7 to 23, in the same dance and arts education curriculum that all NDI students experience.

Our Special Forces Program, in PS 124 ands PS 199, joins self-contained special education with general education classrooms to build positive relationships between each community, proving that both populations benefit from intentional and compassionate collaboration.

At PS 163, our partnership has inspired the entire school’s pedagogy with “Project Integration through the Arts.” Through dance, students in dual-language and integrated co-teaching programs gain a common means of understanding to help build communication.

These are just a few of the 5,000 stories happening in NDI classes across New York City each week. Our approach to learning through movement and music allows general and special education students, English language learners (ELL), Students with Interrupted Formal Education (SIFE), and students with behavioral issues to build collective feelings of physical and emotional success.

Many organizations offer arts education programming in public school settings as a supplement to their core mission. A good example is New York City Ballet, from which our founder hails. Providing a full-year of weekly arts education programming in public school settings is our core mission. It is not an off-shoot of our programming, nor secondary to our mission…it is our charge.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

National Dance Institute’s teaching artists engender joy in movement and a feeling of collective success for 5,000 children each week through dance, music, and visual arts during the school day, at partnering public schools across New York City. The In-School Program reaches a culturally, ethnically, and economically diverse group of youth – having impacted the lives of over 2 million children in the last 35 years. Our partnerships have proven essential to the school communities in which we work. NDI’s In-School Program has weathered numerous rounds of school budget cuts and changes in administrations. Our average tenure in the schools we serve is 12 years, with many new additions in the last 2-3 years as well as several partnerships of 25-plus years.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

National Dance Institute will increase the exposure of our In-School Program to New York City public school communities and, consequently, increase our ability to nurture empathy and culturally aware citizenship in children. We will highlight models of inclusion within the schools we already serve, and look to partner with new schools that will be committed participants in activating empathy through physically active, creative, and inclusive pursuits. And, finally, we will further expand our reach and impact by training more teaching artists in our unique pedagogy for simultaneously engaging and energizing special populations and typically developing students with arts education experiences.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

There are two significant barriers to the expansion of National Dance Institute’s inclusive In-School Program model. Finding the highest-calibre artists who also have a love for teaching children, training them in our pedagogy, and providing them with the resources to make teaching a sustainable life/career choice is a major ongoing challenge. Additionally, raising the necessary funds to support our In-School Program’s presence in a growing number of partner schools is a struggle, particularly in uncertain economic times. Our best response to both challenges is to build awareness of our programs and their impact.

Growing up on the streets of Washington Heights in New York City with a rowdy group of kids, Jacques d’Amboise learned at a young age how the arts — and a good teacher — can save a child. They saved him. Forced by his mother to attend his sister’s ballet class one day, the dance teacher engaged Jacques. Week after week, with praise and encouragement, she began to motivate him. He was soon on his way to becoming one of the finest classical dancers of our time. In 1976, while still a principal dancer with New York City Ballet, Jacques founded NDI in the belief that the arts have a unique power to level the playing field and engage and motivate children of all abilities toward excellence.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

The American Teenager Project’s primary goal is to combat social division and conflict among youth, which is caused both by residential segregation, and the legacy of poverty, racism, sexism, and homophobia, which lead youth to separate and fight each other rather than form alliances to strengthen them all. We are also concerned about the limited participation of minority and low-income youth in arts and social justice programs caused by cuts to such programs in public schools nation wide. A final problem we are solving is youth apathy caused by feeling undervalued in schools and the larger community.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Our solution is to lead youth in gathering and maintaining a portrait photography and oral history archive of the adolescent experience in the United States, giving authentic voice to youth of all backgrounds and giving them an opportunity to know and care about each other, whether in person or through each others’ portrait and story, despite the multiple barriers that could divide them. Our immersion workshops bring youth from particular communities together across difference and teach them to listen to and tell each other’s stories. We develop youth engagement by giving them the platform to publicly present their story and their discoveries about each other and to inform their peers and the adults in their community what they want, what they need, and what they have to offer.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

The American Teenager Project works in tandem with schools, libraries, community centers, arts organizations and after-school programs in each region to bring high school age youth from multiple backgrounds together for our It’s Complicated (IC) Workshops, during which they collaborate to take photographic portraits and oral histories of each other. We use the diversity of experience expressed by the teenagers in Robin Bowman’s photography and oral history collection to push youth to consider the lives of others from varied experiences and points of view and to consider how learning about the “other” affects their own outlook on the world and treatment of the “other” in their lives. Each workshop culminates in a professional level, public exhibition of work, presented by the youth to their chosen community audience. The final level of community engagement brings a cross-section of youth from an entire region or city together for a Master ICWorkshop which curates the material gathered through all the ICWorkshops and puts together a Culminating Exhibit and high profile public event at which youth present themselves to the community and lead discussions about the most pertinent youth issues that have come to light during their process.

The Museum of Tolerance, GSA network, Facing History and Ourselves, and Challenge Day train youth to see beyond difference and forge alliances. StoryCorps’ uses mobile units to archive oral histories and YouthSpeaks values youth as creator and audience. We see all these groups as allies in our work, but differentiate ourselves because we include the diversity both in and out of the room, emphasize community building over self-expression, and are not rooted to a particular dogma. We are not dependent on an academic class or club to run programs and we bridge the cultural gap in museum-going by being the connective vehicle through which several organizations in a community can work together.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

We bridged the gap between youth in Cincinnati who in no other circumstance had opportunities to connect with each other because of historically based race and income boundaries in their city. We’ve published three books of youth photos and stories. Robin Bowman has spoken to over 6,000 youth about seeing past difference and forging connections with others. In 20 (that we know of) schools teachers are using our photographs and oral histories to teach youth about diversity and adolescent issues. Participants in our workshop say they have learned “the grass isn’t greener” and “I had certain views on some people, but I, it’s changed since I’ve gotten here, since I’ve gotten to know them” and “It was real interesting to see how the stereotypes I have didn’t fit.”

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

We anticipate running workshops with at least 2,000 youth in ten cities/regions over the next three years. Their exhibitions will reach a youth audience of at least 10,000 and will be the seed of curiosity, openness, and compassion in their home communities. 25,000 youth and adults will have their hearts and minds opened by the photographs and stories shown through our mobile gallery.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

A barrier to our program is the limitations in the traditional school day in both private and public schools. We have to find avenues through which youth can participate in our program. Our plan is to adapt the workshop model to fit different systems’ structures and needs. We also might face opposition to our stance on gay rights– similarly to how GSAs have faced opposition. We plan to find collaborative partners in each community who can help us anticipate and navigate such conflicts. Our collaborators will need to be trusted and respected adults who have anchors in the community.

During Robin’s ICWorkshops in Cincinnati last Spring the youth transcended the entrenched segregation in that communities’ schools to form strong bonds with each other and produce an extraordinary collection of portraits and stories. The workshop proved the impact Robin’s photographic material and process has on facilitating connection and compassion and participants urged Robin to expand her program to help kids nationwide. At the same moment in time, Julia left classroom teaching to pursue other avenues for youth empowerment, because she saw how the economic crisis and high-stakes testing climate was cutting youth’s access to most opportunities for building their compassionate connection to the world. Our missions crossed when Robin invited Julia to join her in creating a new program.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Majority of the school systems in the developing world lay emphasis on rote-based learning in which children are merely receptors of knowledge. Children who are the real stakeholders are never included in this process of creating education content as well as innovations and hence there is a disconnect between what content will be sustainable in classroom settings. With the technology tools at our disposal there is a growing need to empower children to participate in this revolution so that they can grow up to become empathetic towards the needs of less privileged children and in the process learn better.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Our solution address two things:

Empowerment
Platform for children to learn (at their own pace), teach (what they have learned) and share (with their community). TAC’s platform creates a structured computer-based learning experience that empowers children to learn at their own pace and educators to evaluate each child individually. We integrate key features like Stanford Universities SMILE program, which allows children to create questions and videos of their own.

Access to Information
TAC creates and sets up low-cost education hotspots, which are wireless servers that run on electricity (solar powered hotspots under development) and come prepackaged with proprietary software, NomadEDU, thus eliminating need for Internet.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Learn: Adapt the plethora of educational content to local classrooms by structuring it to the local curriculum. This enables the children and teachers to use online educational resources in their classrooms and customize their own lessons.

Create: NomadEDU provides teachers and children the technology to share and create their localized lessons. This stage involves a lot of community engagement and motivates the teachers and children to take ownership of the project.

The students will create questions related to the video lessons and classroom content, which will be answered by other students in the class. These will also form a repository of Q&A that can be shared to other classrooms and schools. The SMILE server that is integrated into our hotspots allows local teachers to evaluate the retention and comprehension of the students through this exercise.

Share: By submitting content to localized hotspots in the form of questions and videos, teachers and students can share their own learning with the community and other schools.

Through this process of Learning, Creating, Sharing we hope to engage students and teachers in developing localized e-learning resources for their community and thus empower children to participate in a global movement to change the way we learn.

O Mercado: Quem são os seus pares e concorrentes? Identificar os outros que também estão trabalhando para solucionar as mesmas necessidades que você e o que você faz de diferente em relação a eles.

Our peers and partners are content providers like Khan Academy, Udemy; innovative engines like SMILE and field delivery channels like Peace Corps and TFI.

Each player concentrates only on one end of the spectrum – providing content creation or delivery. Therefore given our model, we see more collaboration than competitive challenges to our growth. By leveraging the best practices of existing models, we focus on empowering local stakeholders (teachers & students) to learn from existing resources and create their own, contributing to a mutually beneficial environment. We see children developing content and questions, which can be shared with children from all over the world facilitating learning and fostering empathy at a very young age.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

leia mais↑ ocultar↑ ocultar

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

We are collaborative changemakers. To date we have brought about a two-dimensional difference –

First, by reaching 200 children in Mongolia, TAC has been a successful delivery network to remote orphanages with zero access to the Internet or other progressive education material.

Second, by going backstage and joining hands with the true stakeholders, we are focusing on a long term and sustainable approach. 15 of the 200 children teamed up to create lessons inspired from KhanAcademy. One of them, Zaya from Lotus Orphanage, translated the KA interface into Mongolian, leading by example and demonstrating potential to her community.

Imagine the power of reverse accountability, when local community children themselves carry the inspiration and onus of making-change. That is the impact we hope to deliver.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

Given our focus on developing countries, we understand that scale is indispensable to a high impact solution. While maintaining our dedication towards bringing enhanced learning material to classrooms, with our strong partners like TFI and Peace Corps we can deliver and scale our model to remote communities in countries like India, Bangladesh and Mongolia.

We will be collaborating with local educators and children in schools operated by our partners and thus reach at least 20 new schools in 2012 and 100 by 2015. Just by working with children in schools in developed countries to create lessons we are on track to create a base of over 2000 education lessons taught by kids over the next 2 years. This content would reach at total of over 20,000 children.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

Our ability to have a meaningful impact hinges on full participation from the main stakeholders: teachers and children. On a daily basis, the biggest challenging is motivating teachers to step out of their comfort zone and experiment with technology.

On a long-term basis, the success of our project will be measured by its sustainability. For this, we need local teachers and school administrators to take ownership of these projects.

We have chosen to take a bottom-up approach to the problems. We want to first focus on successfully piloting our projects in partnership with established NGOs. Once we have achieved demonstrable results, we will approach the municipal bodies as well as the planning commission in India. By demonstrating tangible results, we hope to create a mass movement.

In 2011, our founder, Neil D'souza, started delivering online resources to orphanages in Asia through our education hotspots. As he was setting up these hotspots, he was struck by the brilliance of the children he was teaching and thought about get children involved in his project. He started creating internships for children from the orphanages wherein he would get them to create lessons based on existing content. He noticed how this exercise, apart from allowing the kids to improve their own understanding of the subject matter, was helping them become more empathetic towards other students in their community. This revelation led to the development of NomadEDU, a platform for children to learn, teach and share these lessons with other low-income remote communities around the world.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Israelis and Palestinians lack the opportunities, capacities, and tools to find common ground on the core issues perpetuating conflict within and between their societies. At the heart of the problem lies a shared, deep-seated belief that they are engaged in an existential conflict. Fearful that acknowledging each other’s perspectives and needs might undermine their own legitimacy, both sides remain unwilling to take the steps needed to reach peace.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

If Israeli and Palestinian youth, as significant contributors to activities that drive both conflict and peace, lead efforts to address core conflict issues within and between their societies through community dialogues with peers and community members and educational programs that couple cross-border dialogues with cooperative action; if there is greater investment in developing capacities that help alleviate and transform conflict, i.e. dialogue facilitation, mediation and negotiation skills, and innovative problem-solving; and if women, children and educators are better integrated into peacebuilding, then there will be important progress towards reaching common ground and building the foundation for peace.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Historically, educators have played a pivotal role in transforming conflict; in Israel and the Palestinian territories, however, they often lack the motivation, networks, skills, and tools to use their classrooms and schools as a force for peace. Our workshops are designed to strengthen the capacity of at least 300 educators to promote peace education, cross-cultural understanding, civic engagement, and leadership in their home communities through professional training, tools, and resources. Seeds of Peace will conduct capacity building workshops within the West Bank, Gaza and Israel, including 16 uni-national workshops and two bi-national workshops. These workshops will culminate in an annual cross-border conference in Jordan focused on practical ways in which educators can empower youth to be active, peaceful, productive citizens. In addition to the trainings, Seeds of Peace will produce a series of teachers’ guides in English, Hebrew and Arabic. These guides will be designed in both online and hard copy versions. The online guides will be promoted to local NGOs, schools, and partner networks; hard copy guides will be distributed to educators and schools in marginalized communities and/or where online access is less common.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Seeds of Peace collects feedback from participants and considers staff observations when assessing the impact of the programs. Participants in past programs of a similar nature have set aside differences and biases to work together as a team and fully engage in the program. They also demonstrated a commitment to the ideals of Seeds of Peace and the desire to continue their work in their home schools and communities. Seeds of Peace has almost 20 years of organizational experience successfully implementing programs addressing conflict management and mitigation including the Model Schools Initiative, which called on educators to cultivate an environment of tolerance, dialogue and civic engagement in Palestinian and Israeli schools and youth organizations.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

Develop critical support networks for young people working to create common ground between their societies; create a multiplier effect through schools, classrooms, and communities throughout Israel, the West Bank, and Gaza; strengthen the capacity of a minimum of 250 educators to promote peace education, cross-cultural understanding, civic engagement, and leadership in their home communities through professional training, tools, and resources.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

Seeds of Peace works in regions of conflict where the situation on the ground is dynamic. The political climate in many cities where Seeds of Peace operates is in flux, and there is often uncertainty from day to day. The commitment of our participants to their important work, as well as our strong relationships and open lines of communication with government officials and community members around the world help mitigate the consequences of political instability.

História: Queremos saber mais sobre o momento de descoberta desta solução. Conte-nos a história sobre onde e quando o(s) fundador(res) vislumbrou(aram) o potencial desta solução para mudar o mundo. [125 palavras]

Seeds of Peace was founded in 1993 by John Wallach, an award-winning author and journalist who believed that given the chance, youth will choose coexistence over conflict, hope over fear and further, the belief that these choices will permeate their local cultures and have a positive, lasting impact on the future of global peace and prosperity. Seeds of Peace was born at a meeting John had with leaders from the Middle East. During the meeting, John proposed that they each send a few of the “best and brightest” teenagers from their countries to a summer camp in Maine to participate in a team-building and leadership program.

Ideia (você está para lançar)

Há quanto tempo seu projeto está em atividade?

Ainda na fase de ideia, mas você deseja lançá-lo em breve

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Recent political unrest has caused the number of orphans to spike in the Kathmandu Valley. Adoptions have been halted for years due to growing coercion, trafficking, and corruption of orphans. The number of orphans is increasing as resources are dwindling. Girls are especially vulnerable. Orphanages are mis-managed and under-funded. Often girls and boys at orphanages report being discriminated against in class for being poor or from a certain caste, blamed for stealing things just because they are poor, picked on by teachers for unpaid tuition, and being told they are inferior because they do not have what is considered a ‘traditional’ family. This, of course, adversely impacts their ability to learn and their chances of becoming confident, community leaders.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Theater is essentially the art of empathy. One literally embodies another character to tell their story. Theater is also play, so it a perfect tool with which to engage children to learn and practice empathy, collaboration, leadership, and improvise to problem solve.

By teaching empathy through participatory theater to orphans, we can build confidence and empathy skills that will empower orphans in the face of injustice. By extending our empathy-focused theater curriculum to school children who are peers of orphans, we can cultivate cultural sensitivity and understanding, practice active listening, and develop the psychological skills of putting ourselves in another person’s shoes to understand their worldview.

The workshops will consist of highly interactive workshops in writing, discussing, and playing improvisational theater games. The youth would create and perform theater scenes centered on topics of discrimination, allowing them to build and utilize empathy skills.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

In the process of developing and performing theater in these workshops, participants will develop the abilities to problem solve on their feet, understand other people’s motivations through character analysis, listen, cooperate, build confidence, and, most importantly, develop their ability to empathize.
We will excite and educate participants using simple, fun theater games. Augusto Boal’s Theater of the Oppressed envisions theater as a place to practice new ways of thinking that actors can then incorporate into real life. We will use scenarios that address discrimination and bullying based on ethnicity, wealth, family status, etc. The students will improvise different scenarios, experiment with different endings, and use question and answer sessions to understand the motivations of each of the characters. They can then use what they have learned to collectively problem solve and enact the solution.
There will also be a strong writing component based on personal exploration. Participants will begin by writing monologues about themselves. They will also interview a peer and write a monologue from that person’s point of view. Then, the children will write their own short scenes about a conflict and its resolution.
Participants will sign up as directors and actors. In rehearsal, we will play, practice, and discuss how to embody the characters physically and mentally. How does the character move? If they are egotistical, how do they walk? If they are insecure, how do they behave? What is causing them to do this in the scene? Finally, they will perform their scenes.

There do not seem to be any NGOs in Nepal with children focusing on building empathy based on difference. We hope to set a precedent for this kind of work in Nepal in other areas of discrimination (such as gender, lifestyle, etc).

One group in Kathmandu is doing social justice street theater about relevant social issues. They, I believe, would be a potential partner, as we could collaborate to give children training with actors from their company, and perhaps partner to increase the sustainability of and expand the vision of both our projects.

Furthermore, this program is unique to social activist theater programs, which work with adults, not children, and use theater to promote a message, rather than using the process of creating theater to teach participants empathy.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

The Kumari Project has provided required school uniforms, textbooks, tuition, and nutrition to over 225 Nepalese orphans. This theater program, however, is still in the concept stage. Our Executive Director has extensive history designing similar empathy-building theater programs, most recently, consulting for Minority Rights Group International's EU-grant funded Street Theatre to Combat Racism Program in four countries. Additionally she wrote about implementing an empathy-based theater project in her Theater Studies Thesis at Yale 'Tibet Imagined: An Exploration of Social Change Theater, Movement, and Empathy Production.'
Using theater and play as a vehicle for children to express themselves and explore other people’s perspectives by creating and writing their own characters will build confidence, critical thinking, problem-solving, team-building, and empathy skills in orphans and non-orphans, creating a more accepting learning environment and growing responsive community leaders.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

Within the next year, we expect to pilot this program in four orphanages and three schools, impacting over 210 children (120 orphans). Then, with continued support, we will repeat our program at each orphanage and expand the program to another three schools that orphans attend and four more orphanages. Finally, in the final year, we will expand this program to all eleven orphanages run by the Nepal Children's Organization, and at least one school attended by kids on those orphanages, reaching all 520 kids in the Nepal Children’s Organization’s children’s homes and even more children at schools that orphans attend, cultivating empathy-building skills in all children who participate in the program.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

Due to the political instability, there are frequent public transportation and worker strikes and petrol and electricity shortages. By creating a flexible schedule we will be prepared to overcome potential interruptions.
Culturally, Nepalese schools rely on rote memorization. Thus, it might be challenging for children to develop and write scripts from scratch. However, we designed the program to guide them through the creative process, starting with playing theater games and building up to cultivating creative autonomy. Also, bullying and discrimination might be difficult to discuss, so we will present hypothetical scenarios before discussing the personal reality of the scenes and the consequences on people’s feelings and actions. Our Nepali volunteers will translate if needed.

História: Queremos saber mais sobre o momento de descoberta desta solução. Conte-nos a história sobre onde e quando o(s) fundador(res) vislumbrou(aram) o potencial desta solução para mudar o mundo. [125 palavras]

I co-created a writing and performance workshop for young Nepalese immigrant women in Queens. The girls often wrote about fights with their mothers about their lack of freedom and how their mothers did not trust them. Two sisters performed a scene in which the eldest played the mother and the youngest, the daughter. As soon as it was over, the eldest exclaimed, “I understand what our mom went through to get us here [America]. We should be nicer to her.” The two sisters commenced to write and perform a scene portraying how they currently treated their mother and how they wanted to recognize the sacrifices she had made for them and be more respectful in the future. I realized then the power theater has to transform, even more than those who watch it, those who perform it.

Bullying is a huge problem in our schools and neighborhoods. Instead of the numbers of bullying incidents declining, they are increasing. 160,000 kids miss school everyday because of being bullied.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

One of the first and most popular anti-bullying videos "Gum In My Hair" is entertaining, engaging and effective. Bullying almost always stops when peers intervene,but young people need to be taught how to do that. This DVD 2.0 incorporates new research that emphasizes:
• The role of the bystander in fueling or defusing a bullying incident;
• Empathy, and how teaching it can prevent bullying in the hallways;
• Why it's important to focus on "bullying" rather than just the bully;
• And the fact that having one or two friends or allies significantly reduces
a child's chances of being bullied.
Gum In My Hair looks at what bullying is, its effects on people and how it makes them feel. Gum In My Hair is a new way to deal with an old topic, and will be invaluable to anyone wanting to help children learn in a safe and supportive environment.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

In this country, our children's social and emotional intelligence and well-being have been sacrificed in a well-meaning but inherently flawed effort to improve public education exclusively through quantitative testing results and measurable data. Anxiety, bullying, drop-out rates, college-readiness skills, and the need for special education services have risen dramatically in the past 10 years since the enactment of No Child Left Behind. Our official education policy has embraced content over the development of higher-order thinking skills such as critical thinking, executive function, collaborative problem solving, and has all but ignored higher level feeling skills such as emotional regulation, relatedness, community building, empathy, moral development, and character education.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

The solution is to develop project-based, highly personalized educational models that focus on developing 21st century skills with a deliberately diverse student population. The Tremont School takes a wide variety of students and addresses their social, emotional, and academic needs by engaging in hands-on learning that supports the intrinsic understanding of the academic material while promoting relatedness and empathy through a social curriculum that spans the entire school day from classroom to lunchroom to gym class. The academic curriculum is customized around the students' individual learning styles and interests, so they can learn from each other in a dynamic and engaging academic community reflecting the society at large they will graduate into. The social/emotional curriculum is embedded into every academic activity and the very culture of the school. And we achieve these results with a student community that includes children with special needs including autism and ADHD.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

A student who has been removed from school and home-schooled because of bullying comes to the Tremont School for his first day and finds that another student--through no prompting from a teacher--has put a note in his locker welcoming him to school. He sits in the morning meeting to preview the days work and meet his classmates before breaking into an all-school community skills class where they are learning about reading non-verbal social cues in a group setting. Following a quick meeting with a teacher around the students contract for that week, he heads off to find his partner on the musical they are writing together. Gym class comes next where they are playing cooperative games led by the student captain chosen for that week. During lunch, teachers sit with students outside to share ideas about current events. The afternoon is spent as a group building a shelter in the woods that can survive the sustained winds of a storm coming in a few days, which has been tracked and rated by another group of students interested in meteorology. After school a group of students meet for group activities that they have planned and organized themselves with the support of parent volunteers. One group is knitting scarves for the upcoming school fundraiser while another is making coloring books for one parent who is a surgeon to deliver to pediatric patients on his trip to Colombia to work on cleft palates. This is a real-life example of a day at Tremont School where kids constantly feel connected to themselves, their community, and their academics in a comprehensive way.

The marketplace for our services is massive and includes essentially every school-age child in the United States. Our direct competitors are the same as our peers--public schools as well as more traditional private/parochial schools. As a non-profit organization with a mission to develop private schools, charter schools, as well as whole-child curriculum for public schools, our closest competition is also our closest potential partners. Where there is a need in the marketplace for a school like the Tremont School, we can build a private school or charter school. If the community has an existing school that could achieve our mission through consulting, curriculum or other types of support, we can provide that expertise and fulfill our mission in partnership with those existing schools.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

In only our first year we have fundamentally changed the lives of our students and families. Early parent survey results from Year One demonstrate that our students are happier, more connected to each other, more interested in their school work, and more successful at home as a result of joining the School. Parents report drastic improvements in their attitude toward school work, friendships, and their skills at problem solving. Academically, our students are more actively engaged in their work than at their previous school as a result of our unique curriculum. We have independently measured time on task at the school and found that students are averaging 80 percent time-on-task. Parents report that their children are working at home independently and reading on their own more than at their previous schools. All of our families are returning next year, and several are registering siblings for next year. Students report that they enjoy school more, both socially and academically.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

To increase the number of families served by the Tremont School pilot to 125; to identify a market for developing the first public charter school using the Tremont School model to serve 150 children; to publish a white paper on how public schools can measure social and emotional development and learning within the context of No Child Left Behind; and to develop a coalition model of schools that will replicate and grow the network of Collaborative Learning Project Schools. Finally, we plan on creating leadership and summer institutes where educators, parents, students, and service providers can come and learn about how to implement a more comprehensive approach to education that weaves social and emotional learning across all aspects of school to create a culture of support and caring.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

The primary barrier to success is financial sustainability. Tuition dollars, philanthropy, and government support for charter schools could be affected by the economy, politics, and a host of other reasons beyond our control. For the Tremont School, developing a program that is truly inclusive means finding parents who's children aren't in crisis but who see the value in our project-based curriculum that focuses on 21st century skills. Early adopters are often those families who have experienced previous failure. We need to develop a program who's success in reaching and teaching ALL children creates a school and community environment that reflects our society as a whole. Inclusive education requires a broad-based community of students, which is a challenging recruiting environment.

História: Queremos saber mais sobre o momento de descoberta desta solução. Conte-nos a história sobre onde e quando o(s) fundador(res) vislumbrou(aram) o potencial desta solução para mudar o mundo. [125 palavras]

In 2008, three families shared a dream: to create an alternative independent day school where all of their children could learn and thrive, together. What made this dream unique was the fact that each of the families had at least one child on the autism spectrum.

Inspired by the goal to deeply engage its students socially and emotionally as well as academically, the three families reached out to a group of parents, educators, child advocates, and community leaders who shared their interested in building a new kind of inclusive school. The Collaborative Learning Project was formed in April of 2008, and received its tax-exempt status in August of 2009.

Plans soon emerged for a middle school that would accept both children with autism and their “typical” peers, to create a dynamic and unique learning community where ALL students would be heard, respected, cared for, and supported in an engaging and non-judgmental environment.

The Tremont School opened in September of 2011.

Our team already includes 4 teachers, an academic director, and an unpaid, full-time president of the board. In order to achieve our growth milestones we will need to hire a marketing/development director, a charter school founder as well as an executive director within the next two years. We will also need to hire additional teachers as the Tremont School grows in order to keep the student-teacher ratio at approximately 6-1. We have developed a board and volunteer team of over 30 people and we will continue to provide resources for staff and volunteer development.

Non-profit organizations need to be engaged in everything all the time, constantly evaluating what it needs to grow and what it can provide to others in support of the sector. At its best, a non-profit is both a sponge for resources as well as a fire hose of support for its community of stakeholders. Connecting with others in an exchange of time, talent, and treasure is why I do this work.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

computer illiteracy
help send more children to school.
reduce early death of young people by encouraging a healthy food no smoking or drinking area.
this will also give chance to juvenile offenders to turn their lives around
it will help young people become more independent and less reckless because we will be there to talk to them when they have no one to turn to, and it will be the best seeing that it is a youth led initiative and it can be said that its easier to talk to someone about your age.
it will reduce a lot of tv sessions and more garden sessions, hence more knowledge to empower young people

secondly there are no jobs for youth, even if its a small percentage but this project will create jobs for young people.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Youth will be offered an opportunity to learn and develop entrepreneurial business skills, and become advocates for environmental and health issues amongst their peers and within their community. Participants will grow fresh produce on an urban agricultural site and develop business/marketing skills. Furthermore, this program promotes healthy eating habits, increases awareness around environmental issues and encourages physical activity. Young people will be encouraged to be involved in the planning, researching, decision making, fund-raising and running of the Youth Garden; empowering young people and giving them responsibility to create a sense of ownership and commitment. That’s why the Youth Garden is a very special project.

when i was walking home one very hot day i saw a scrony small girl sitting on the ground under a very big beautiful tree. she was begging for money to buy food. i asked her why she was not in school and she told me that her parents had no money to send her to school. it really touched me that i got to finish school and she didn't, i further asked her what grade she was in and she said she stopped school the previous year in term 2 and that was her last year. it brought tears to my eyes that this well spoken child had only one and a half terms to go before she completed her high school. it then dawned to me that since the tree was her source of protection from the scorching sun while she begged for arms, we needed more trees and more people to give a lending hand so that every child can finish their education and become great leaders of tomorrow then whala THE YOUTH GARDEN PROJECT was born.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

On a daily basis, Montana youth confront intolerance, discrimination and violence. Though youth bullying and violence are often connected to prejudice, many anti-bullying efforts do not adequately address this root cause. Montana’s increasing diversity corresponds with a significant increase in incidents of bigotry and violence, as evidenced by brutal attacks on LGBTIQ people, hazing of youth with disabilities, and racist targeting of people of color. While we know significant prejudice exists in Montana, very little work has been done to combat intolerance in the state.
Due to funding limitations, many schools are unable to implement effective violence prevention efforts. NCBI build safe, empowering, and inclusive learning communities.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

NCBI serves the state of Montana, with a focus on empowering individuals targeted by prejudice and mistreatment. NCBI implements violence prevention programs for youth grades K-12 and trains educators in effective prejudice and violence intervention practices. NCBI recruits diverse groups of participants including students who have been targets of mistreatment, as well as students who act as allies for those who are targeted.

NCBI is a sought-out resource, and provides prejudice reduction, violence prevention and conflict resolution training to individuals, organizations and schools throughout Montana. To date, NCBI only implements ongoing youth programs in 6 Missoula schools - 1 elementary, 3 middle, and 2 high schools. NCBI has received requests to expand within the Missoula County Public School District and to several nearby rural or reservation communities, to reach an increased number of youth and create environments where all students feel safe, included, and engaged.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

High School Train-the-Trainer – 3-day Seminar for High School Youth and Educators: Builds a corps of students, staff, and community members who can facilitate NCBI trainings for the school community. This program teaches effective leadership skills in the areas of prejudice reduction, violence prevention, conflict resolution, and community building, educating up to 60 youth and educators annually. Youth trainers help facilitate the following:
Respect Club – Elementary and Middle School Youth After-school Program: Assists youth to develop the capacity, esteem and skills to achieve a healthy identity, overall wellness, and academic success. Students build relationships across group lines, develop leadership skills, and take action to improve the safety of their own lives and their school environment. Up to 30 students participate in weekly after-school activities.
Youth Forward – High School Youth After-school Program: Decreases isolation and risk behaviors and promotes healthy identity and resilience among youth 13 to 18 that identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, two-spirit, queer or are questioning their sexuality. Up to 30 youth attend weekly activities.
Youth and School-Based Trainings —Assorted Workshops: Builds a foundational climate of respect and inclusion among students, school staff and administrators, including generalized curriculum designed to prevent bullying and create inclusive learning environments, as well as workshops on specific issues, such as responding to anti-gay harassment. 400 educators and 900 youth participate in training annually.

NCBI is the only Montana organization working to develop young people’s skills to reduce prejudice and prevent violence. Our Respect Club programs are offered through the Flagship Program, a local organization coordinating after-school programs .works closely with the Flagship program at each school to ensure successful recruitment of a diverse student pool. Respect Club consistently engages more students of color than other Flagship programs. Whereas all Flagship programs engage 12% youth of color, Respect Club averaged at least 25% students of color over the past six years, significant in a city that is 94% white. In addition, Flagship coordinators report that many students who participate in Respect Club do not participate in other Flagship activities.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

In 2011, NCBI’s school based programs reached over 1500 educators and young people in 24 Montana schools.
Youth participants report: Increased knowledge of safety and respect, increased understanding of roots of prejudice and violence, increased prejudice reduction and violence prevention skills, and increased self-esteem and confidence. Educators report increased violence prevention knowledge and intervention skills.
One example of NCBI’s impact comes from our high school program’s success. After unprecedented levels of violence in the Missoula high schools in 2007, NCBI launched a peer-led Violence Prevention Initiative targeting the freshman classes. Since then, NCBI has coordinated an annual Training of Trainers to prepare youth and adult teams to be workshop facilitators. School disciplinary data indicates that after NCBI began implementation of Violence Prevention Initiative, violence reduced more than 65% over two years at one high school and 54% the first year at a second.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

With support to expand our Youth Development Program staff, NCBI will be able to grow all programs, more than doubling our annual impact after three-years of expansion.
Specific program participation outcomes for each year are as follows:

Year 1: 2130 Participants
-Respect Club: 40
-Youth Forward: 30
-Training of Trainers: 60
-Youth and School-Based Trainings: 2000

Year 2: 4160 Participants
-Respect Club: 60
-Youth Forward: 40
-Training of Trainers: 60
-Youth and School-Based Trainings: 4000

Year 3: 6200 Participants
-Respect Club: 80
-Youth Forward: 50
-Training of Trainers: 70
-Youth and School-Based Trainings: 6000

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

Demand for NCBI’s youth programs has outpaced expansion in staff. The Director of Youth Programs is operating far over capacity, managing NCBI’s high school peer-prevention program and statewide profession-development trainings in addition to overseeing the four current Missoula Respect Clubs. Her current work load is not sustainable and, without additional funding for staff and resources, expansion of NCBI Youth Development Programs is not possible. Additional staff is required to meet the current need and to build capacity for future program expansion.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Life’s ever-changing challenges have been given rope to tug people’s lives away from the outcomes that they desire. The challenges have overwhelmed people of all ages into doubting their own ability to successfully find solutions, make responsible decisions, manage their emotions and take control of their lives. Confusion is ripe with regard to clearly mapping out the challenges, choices and solutions. People are not equipped with the right tools and necessary skills to enable them to trust themselves and use empathy to give input, lead, create value and actively participate as a player on the field of life.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

The Tug-of-Life is a simple handbook and methodology that can be used widely and uniquely in communities that engage and problem-solve with it. It equips children, adolescents and adults with tools to: think responsibly and proactively about life, identify their challenges, recognize their choices and actively find solutions. It enables people to constructively map out the contests faced on life’s playing field, thereby allowing everyone to choose and utilize those inherent skills that need practice, in order to ‘tug’ life in the right direction through wise choices. Tug-of-Life material provides a new way of thinking that empowers people to trust themselves, jump off the bystander fence and take control of their life, by developing care and concern for both themselves and others, thereby advancing empathy.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Having the tools to formulate a proactive game plan enables people to win what can feel like a rat race of endless obstacles. Instead of experiencing the overwhelming confusion that results in poor decision making and much distress, engagers with the Tug-of-Life use a simple solution-driven approach to face challenges and make wise choices that direct them toward success. Learners, educators, parents, families and communities are empowered with the right tools to actively seek solutions for themselves. With the Tug-of-Life, you trust your ability to make responsible decisions based on sound judgements, and you look forward to a fulfilled future where past mistakes do not determine future outcomes.

For the last 7years, Life Talk has successfully been raising awareness and providing individuals, schools and families with a solutions-based approach to life’s challenges, through talks, workshops, projects and initiatives based on the Life Talk books. Life Talk’s solutions have empowered people to view themselves as problem-solvers and to motivate others to do the same. The Tug-of-Life uses the previous Life Talk success as a platform with which to launch itself into equipping people with tools to develop empathy and its related skills, so as to unpack life’s complexities, minimize distress and live a happier, healthier life.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

We have worked with thousands of teenagers, educators and parents. The feedback shows that we are raising awareness about key challenges and solutions, and that we trigger behaviour change by getting youth thinking about choices, consequences and key aspects to focus on. Many teens (and parents) have subsequently changed their behaviour and they report that their lives are much smoother and happier. For example, teens have stopped binge-drinking, drugging, being promiscuous or bullying others. Parents have become proactive in their parenting, they take greater responsibility and they now focus on defining family values, setting and enforcing boundaries, and enhancing communication with their teenagers. We’ve also had teens who thanked us for saving their life as they had been contemplating suicide and now have hope.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

With the Tug-of-Life permeating every level of society from learners, teachers, parents and families to communities and organisations, the projected impact is huge. With the Tug-of-Life being a part of school curricula, each player will start to apply a new and proactive way of thinking about life. Using the Tug-of-Life to harness the skills inherent in each of us (that are necessary for empathy) learners will be able to galvanize their lives in the direction of success, finding solutions unique to their own interpretation of the material, thus preventing the challenges from tugging them into areas of hardship and despair

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

Barriers we identify are:
• Inadequate promotion of the Tug-of-Life initiative.
• Lack of funds to drive the promotion and roll out the initiatives on the scale required.
• Human resources required in each country. We need someone to manage the initiative in each country, backed up by a team of dedicated people who will then establish a network of ambassadors and supporters.
We plan to overcome this by:
a. Driving the sales of the Tug-of-Life books
b. Approaching and getting buy-in from influential leaders and decision makers, organisations, governments, media and celebrities.
c. Raising awareness about how powerful our material is in helping one to find one’s own solutions by identifying life's 'contests', ultimately enabling one to tug towards a life of success and happiness.

After Life Talk for a Daughter’s launch, Izabella received thousands of emails from teens and parents. The “Aha!” came when a girl wrote “Thank you for saving my life. I was going to kill myself but I found your book and your chapter ‘What to do when you’ve made a mistake’ made me realize I’ll be OK”. This and other emails ignited Izabella’s passion to address the extensive yet avoidable heartache. She identified that many adolescents face a tug-of-war between challenges (such as drugs, alcohol abuse, peer pressure, promiscuity) and solutions (eg wise choices, values, boundaries, self-discipline). This inspired Izabella to write the Tug-of-Life and to launch it as a worldwide initiative to help the youth (and adults) to identify their choices and game plan for life.

In addition to SA, our target is 4 countries, with a core team of 5 members per country, responsible for the leading cities. Each city requires some 5 people to assist in developing a network of representatives, supporters and agents. So, a core team of 10 in SA plus 4 x 5 means a core team of 30. They in turn would get a network of hundreds (eventually thousands) of ambassadors established.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

High School Students face the difficulties of acquiring core skills needed for the 21st century. Those skills aren’t included in their regular formal education which lasts for 12 years. Youth lack the ability to compete in job market. They rely on the formal education and can’t afford development courses. They can’t plan or develop their career because of lack of ability for planning and ignorance of continuous professional development.
After graduating high school, Youth will be having as options either to continue their education at university level or to get a job.
Whichever choice they finally adjust to the real world. Such being the situation, a number of questions arise:
Do they feel they are ready prepared to face the challenges of the 21st century?

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Integrating the use of supportive technologies so as to gain resources related to 21st century skills.
Inquiry and problem- based approaches to enable youth to learn in relevant, real world 21st century contexts.
Higher order thinking skills needed to adjust in today’s world versus their traditional school’s educational effectiveness.
Encouraging knowledge sharing among communities of learners using virtual communications to provide youth the opportunity for reflection on and applying 21st Century Skills.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

As Arab nations undergo revolutionary change, a new generation of leaders who can balance political and economic reforms with religious and cultural values are vital to a stable future. However, as Jordan’s Queen Rania said in a 2009 CNN interview, “In the Arab World we still focus too much on rote learning…we teach children what to think rather than how to think.” Attitudes of empathy and respect for differing opinions remain vital and elusive outcomes of education. And in a traditionally hierarchical society, convincing young people that they can be changemakers is an ongoing challenge. Though school enrollment is increasing, the quality of education in Arab nations is still inadequate to equip youth to be the problem solvers of tomorrow (AHDR 2002).

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Think Unlimited works to educate a new generation of leaders by training not only youth, but their parents and teachers as well. We offer three programs:

Brain Camp is a 6-day summer camp that alters students’ perceptions about their abilities, and the role of education in their lives. Our original curriculum teaches core critical thinking and perspective-taking skills in a culturally-sensitive way, and inspires youth to use these skills to solve problems and improve their communities.

Brain Builders is a semester-long afterschool program facilitated by local teachers. Through our extensive training and support, teachers gain valuable insights into inductive teaching methods, effective ways to change students’ attitudes about education, and the role games and activities play in the learning process.

Minds in the Making is a course empowering parents to become proactive co-educators, and giving them tools to encourage social and intellectual development in the home.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

At Think Unlimited, we believe that the most valuable resources any school can possess are the minds of its teachers and students, all too often ignored in the race for modern technologies and tools. We build schools from within by equipping students and teachers to think critically, think creatively, and use the power of their minds to create change. Because the national curriculum in Jordan focuses on fact-based rote learning, students lack practical skills and real-world experiences that pave the way for their using education to create change. We fill in these gaps through extracurricular activities.

Our after school program consists of 10 modules, each building a key critical thinking skill:

Mindset and attitudes about learning
Understanding information
Organization
Reasoning
Strategy
Decision Making
Opinion Formation
Perspective Taking
Creativity
Problem Solving

Each module is taught through interactive, culturally-sensitive powerpoint discussions, followed by games and activities that allow students to practice and build upon what they have learned. At the end of each module students are asked to reflect upon how they can use their toolkit of skills to improve their own lives and the futures of their families, communities, and country.

As products of the same broken educational system, teachers and parents themselves often lack these skills and the motivation to turn outward to create change. By training parents to teach these skills at home, and training teachers to implement the afterschool program, we aim for intergenerational change.

O Mercado: Quem são os seus pares e concorrentes? Identificar os outros que também estão trabalhando para solucionar as mesmas necessidades que você e o que você faz de diferente em relação a eles. Quais seriam os desafios impostos por esses concorrentes que impactariam no seu sucesso ou crescimento?

Building employment skills and “job readiness” is a common approach to educational interventions in the Arab world, led by organizations like INJAZ, the Jordan Education Initiative, and CADER. However, framing education programs in this way narrows the vision of students, further entrenching the idea that education is simply a means to an economic end. Think Unlimited equips students with skills that prepare them to be innovators and problem solvers in whatever sector or pursuit they choose, and turns their focus outward toward improving their communities.

Because they are so well-funded and well-established, and their goals align with the powerful private sector, these organizations often leave little room for a fresh take on enrichment programs in schools. But our niche is growing!

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

We originally developed our programs as Peace Corps volunteers in Jordan. During our two years of service, over 600 students participated in Brain Camp programs in under-resourced villages all over Jordan. After completing Peace Corps service in August 2011, we began working full-time to build Think Unlimited, which we incorporated in October 2011. Since then, we have trained 24 teachers and 8 administrators who are implementing the Brain Builders after school program with approximately 150 students this semester.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

With our local partner, and over the next 2 years, we plan to train 250 public school teachers to implement the Brain Builders after school program. If each teacher implements for a minimum of two semesters, over 3,000 students will be reached. But training local teachers makes the program sustainable and unlimitedly replicable.

We currently have funds to offer our Minds in the Making parenting class to 200 parents this year. If our model proves viable, and if we are able to train additional trainers, we should be able to reach at least 500 parents per year over the next two years, impacting roughly 1200 parents and thereby 4,500 children.

We are currently training a new class of 30 Peace Corps volunteers to implement Brain Camps, which we believe will impact 600 students per year

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

Our biggest obstacle so far has been limited manpower. We have been amazed at how much work is involved in keeping administrative fires burning, raising funds, and making sure we’re making careful, considered decisions about management and strategy—all while trying to implement and evaluate our programs! We worry about finding the right people to bring on, given the limited exposure most Jordanians have to the type of work we are doing. We also need team members who share our commitment to quality, in-depth programming and real results. We have begun to nurture program graduates to become capable staff members, giving them a chance to put their skills into action. If successful, this will not only solve our recruiting challenge, but would add another layer of impact to our work.

If we had to identify the single factor that has enabled us to thrive, it would be education. Hoping to offer others what education gave to us, we joined Peace Corps Jordan. As educators in villages we immediately saw how a lack of critical thinking skills and empowerment was limiting our students’ potential. Though we developed Brain Camp as an academic enrichment program, we quickly began seeing its impact beyond the classroom. When a 16-year old girl in our village used the skills she learned at camp to design, initiate, and lead a club for other girls, we knew that building minds could promote empathy and create lasting change, and that our work in the Arab world was just beginning. After Peace Corps we founded Think Unlimited to continue empowering youth be change makers. Our passion for building minds in this part of the world has only grown as we have watched the Arab Spring unfold. In the Middle East, education will almost certainly be the pivot point on which the future turns.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Extreme poverty, AIDS, malaria and hunger have devastated scores of African families and orphaned millions of African children. In the many countries where social welfare nets are not established, these children face uncertain futures and difficult lives. For the children of sub-Saharan Africa, the basic needs of education, food, shelter, clean water, and healthcare are not met. These conditions are unacceptable and we are working to provide care for these highly vulnerable children.

We also believe that in the U.S. there is a great need for a moral education component in the standard American curriculum. We believe that schools have the potential to create globally conscious and socially driven citizens if they engage their students in important conversation and action.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Kids Caring 4 Kids provides an opportunity for American children and young adults to be informed about the world they live in and particularly engage in service to benefit their neighbors in Africa. Kids Caring 4 Kids provides American youth with the opportunity to contribute to the eradication of some of our world’s greatest problems, specifically the crisis of extreme poverty and it’s effects on Africa’s youth. Youth-run fundraisers provide financial support for the children abroad – via building orphan care centers, classrooms, dormitories, schools, specially built bikes, clean drinking water, healthy meals. Campaigns at home connect kids in the United States with kids in the international community, and their awareness creates values grounded in compassion, generosity, and action. Empathy and information today will lead to generations of cooperation and understanding.

We work directly with on the ground operations in Africa to create sustainable change with the funds we raise.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

As kids are learning about the world in the classroom in an academic way, we encourage teachers to include a moral education component to their lesson through the use of our fundraising experience. We provide teacher's with a facilitators guide that is a step-by-step outline of how they can engage their students in our experience. We empower them with the tools they need to get the job done through providing them with posters, flyers, PR samples, t-shirt order forms, worksheet activities, etc. As the students engage in this fundraiser (the form of the fundraiser is their choice, but we provide them with ideas of possible set-ups), we work with the class/group of students to pick a project goal (ie. to provide X number of specially built bikes for Zambian children to get to school, build 2 classrooms, contribute to fund a new high school). The result of this experience within a student's academic experience is their ability to connect what they are learning to real world problem-solving and leadership. In empowering students to run their own fundraiser, they create their own impact and then see the results of their efforts and witness the change that they, as one kid, can make for other kids like them. Teachers report that after facilitating this kind of experience in their classroom, they see the hearts and consciousness of their students change. The best part, the change created is compounded because at the same time, there is change happening in the lives of African kids as they receive the care they need through the funds raised by this model.

There are other organizations run by youth founders who are working to to engage American youth in helping Africa, but I think what differentiates Kids Caring 4 Kids is the role that empathy plays in the foundation of our project. I was born with a rare liver disease and because of this I had a unique sense of empathy at a young age. I put this empathy to action as I witnessed the stories of African AIDS orphans and now with Kids Caring 4 Kids, my team and I are working to teach that kind of empathy through our fundraising experience in order to inspire youth, activate empathy within their hearts and engage them in action that will create real change in Africa. We are unique because of our emphasis on empathy and how we use that to connect children across the world.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Since its founding, Kids Caring 4 Kids has grown to support eight different projects in Africa. We have built a dormitory, two orphan centers, and provided 400 specially built bikes, school supplies, medical care, indoor plumbing, healthy meals and boreholes. We have helped nearly 7,000 people in Africa by inspiring over 7,000 American kids to raise nearly one million dollars and we have even attracted the attention of Oprah and President Clinton.

Over the next year specifically, we want to engage American youth in fundraisers amounting to raising $200,000 to build a new high school in Kitwe, Zambia. Over the next three years we want to be a part of and an advocate for the implementation of a moral education component in the American academic curriculum and continue to provide basic human needs to children in Africa. We want to continue connecting and empowering American youth and African youth.

I think our biggest asset and our biggest barrier are the same, that barrier and asset being the age of our leadership team. While I believe that young people have the power to big things, others sometimes look down upon young people and think that we are not qualified enough to accomplish our ideas or goals. We plan to overcome this by using our network of committed passionate adults who do believe in us and will support our goal, help us advocate our ideas and gain new supporters.

The images on the TV screen shook her 5th grade reality. As Kendall Ciesemier sat watching stories of African AIDS orphans unfold on an Oprah show, she began to imagine herself living in a mud hut alone, caring for her siblings and grieving the death of her parents. Having experienced struggle in her own life, their pain resonated with Kendall and she was in awe of what appeared to be their unwavering hope.

She knew she had seen the opportunity she was waiting for– a chance to give her life more purpose than the liver disease she had grown up fighting against. That summer as she underwent 2 liver transplants, Kendall asked that in lieu of gifts, friends and family donate money to help these children. She then officially organized my effort, starting a non-profit called Kids Caring 4 Kids (KC4K).

Ainda na fase de ideia, mas você deseja lançá-lo em breve

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Close the gap that exists between the aboriginal community and the school, create a place of inclusion and belonging where Aboriginal culture is celebrated, where students feel a place of belonging and inclusion and can begin to take ownership of their education and future goals. Strengthen community relationship and cultural competency among staff and all students.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Work with Rideau High schol (already met with Principal there) They have an Aboriginal program after school that has been running for about a year. Tey have a large population of Aboriginal students and a staff member who is running the program. I am hopeful this project can work with the sucess this group has already had and expand and grow for the benefit of the whole school and community and some day even the school board. Increase cultural competency among staff and students at the school and integrate Aboriginal teachings and cultural components into extracurricular and curricular activities by strengthening our partnerships with the Aboriginal community and organizations in our community.
Increasing knowledge transfer, cultural competency and safety through a two way involvement and visibility between the aboriginal community and the school.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Work with a committee of interested Aboriginal students to form a council, and organize a cultural competency assembly for the whole school.
Invite First Nations, Inuit and Métis role models to discuss historical, contemporary Aboriginal issues. Create empathy by storytelling, sharing and education circles. Medicine wheel teaching importance of all nations and directions and learning to leave and walk in balance. Have each student create a “footprint” listing one thing they will do to try to “walk in balance” with their peers. Create a mural of all students footprints centred around the medicine wheel. And display in a prominent location as a reminder of the school’s commitment to empathy and cultural competency.
Work with Aboriginal organizations to develop a partnership where students can get involved in the community. Build a network of Elders and community members that can be guest speakers and teachers at the school to continually share cultural teachings and experiences on various topics from education, careers, health, sexual health relationships etc.
Create a series of cultural competency education sessions to be delivered to staff as professional development. Within the school and hopefully extending board wide.

As far as I know I don’t see any challenges to this program. The time is right for this iniative, the OCDSB is just starting to work with the aboriginal community to begin the process of Aboriginal self identification for the students , so this project will only be complementary and has the ability to grow into a board wide initiative.
There are some neighbouring school boards in Renfrew county that have already started doing some work in this area but they would not be competition and instead could be partner in terms of providing advise & leadership by sharing best practices and lessons learned.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

The current program at the school has been runninng for a year. It has raised awareness about Aboriginal culture amoung Aboriginal students. Taught students aspects of their culture and allowed them to start sharing it with the community. Developed a sense of pride in Aboriginal heritage.Initial connections with the community.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

with this project I would like to see the initiative at Rideau highschool grow and expand to include school wide cultural competency for all students and staff. I would also like to bring this idea to the board and see it expanded to all school. Would also like to see it as the catalyst for curriculum reform to make Aboriginal culture, teachings and history part of all aspecxts of the curriculum. I believe this will help change attitudes that are part of sysdtemic racism and help encourage more aboriginal children to stay in school and be leaders in the community. Would like to see it this can lead to an Aboriginal human resources component in the board for hiring Aboriginal teachers, elders and support staff.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

Board policy - I plan to over come this byworking with rideau high school on a successful pilot project and by forming a student led committee to raise issues and bring the Aboriginal student voice to the board.
I plan to be heard because I hacve volunteered to sit on the education committee that has recently started and is an initiative of the Urban Aboriginal Strategy and the Ottawa Carleton school board to begin the process for Aboriginal self Identification. I feel this will be a good opportunity to be involved from the bottomn up and it gives me the opportunity to be a voice for Aboriginal students.

As an occassional supply teacher with the board I was often frustrated with the lack of Aboriginal content in the curriculum and most importantly with the seeming invisibility of our Aboriginal students. Ottawa has one of the largest and fastest growing urban Aboriginal populations. Our students are in the schools here and now. THey need to feel that school is a place for them, where they can belong and be proud and celebrate their Aboriginal culture not where they have to be silent and blend in. I was expecially frustrated by the fact that as a teacher looking to work with aboriginal students and none Aboriginal studenton these issues I was told i had to move to a reserve or outwest because thats where Aborighinal students are. My moment came at the Wabano Culture as treatment symposium I met a retired principal from Rideau High school she told me about the work they were doing there and how they would like to do more and introduced me to the current principal.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

The last National Assessment of Educational Progress found that less than one-third of American fourth, eighth and twelfth grade students are proficient in civics. There is a critical and urgent need to educate teachers about the Founding Documents. According to the Department of Education, less than 20% of History teachers have obtained even a minor in History.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

A recent Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement (CIRCLE) study reports that an essential component of improving civic learning among students is to more adequately prepare teachers on civic-related subjects. The Joe Foss Institute and Bill of Rights Institute’s Being an American Seminar will provide teachers with the background knowledge and classroom-tested teaching strategies they need to prepare young people to protect Founding principles.
We propose to conduct the Being an American Seminars nationwide, with the first three being scheduled in Arizona, Montana and Texas, to increase area students’ understanding and embrace of the Constitution.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Utilizing the JFI’s and BRI’s Being an American: Defending and Appreciating Freedom curricula, a distinguished constitutional scholar and one Master Teacher will lead participating teachers (approximately 40 per seminar) through a series of scholarly lectures and pedagogical instruction. The three Being an American Seminars currently scheduled will reach approximately 120 teachers, giving them with the tools they need to better prepare their approximately 9,600 students to protect Founding principles. The preliminary seminar schedule is as follows:

7:30 – 8:00 Breakfast & Registration
8:00 – 8:15 Introduction to the Bill of Rights Institute and Joe Foss Institute
8:15 – 8:45 Video: The Constitution
8:45 – 8:55 Break
8:55 – 9:40 Presentation: “The Constitution: Some General Principles” (Scholar)
9:40 – 9:45 Break
9:45 – 10:30 Application: What does the Constitution require of citizens? (BRI/JFI)
10:30 – 11:15 Presentation: “Securing Liberty: The Bill of Rights” (Scholar)
11:15 – 12:00 Lunch
12:00 – 12:45 Application: American Heroes (BRI/JFI)
12:45 – 12:50 Break
12:50 – 1:35 Presentation: “The Founders and Civic Virtue” (Scholar)
1:35 – 1:40 Break
1:40 – 2:20 Presentation: VIP Founding Documents Module (JFI) and strategies for incorporating guest speakers (JFI/BRI)
2:20 – 2:30 Appreciating our freedom – opportunities for student involvement (JFI/BRI)
While the seminar will be offered at no charge to teachers, there are costs associated with each seminar, such as space rental, travel for JFI and BRI staff and scholars, and catering.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Students need to develop empathy for people within their own communities and around the world. Middle school students are capable of empathizing and engaging with the world in far more sophisticated ways than we often give them credit for. Typical middle schools move students from class to class, limiting opportunities for building meaningful relationships with teachers. Segregating subjects also limits opportunities for transformative interdisciplinary work. The typical middle school curricula keeps students too busy doing someone else's homework to participate meaningfully in the world.

We need a school that nurtures the development of empathetic global citizens, mentored by caring adults as they become engaged, participating members of their own community and the global community.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Triangle Learning Community (TLC) will mentor a group of socio-economically and culturally diverse middle school students to become empathetic global citizens. TLC also aims to model what is possible when students use technology to thoughtfully connect with the rest of the world and gain global context.

TLC students will begin in sixth grade by developing a tightly-knit and supportive learning community. Teams of two teachers will follow the same cohort of 20 students for all three years, so that by eighth grade, the group will know each other extremely well.

In eighth grade, each student will propose and design a six-month capstone project that makes the world a better place. An example might be securing 50 micro-loans for 50 women in a rural Pakistani village.

TLC's in-depth and inter-disciplinary approach will provide students with a much-needed chance to Slow Down, and take the necessary time on a daily basis to thoughtfully consider the world from another's perspective.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Students in the US today live in a bubble. At TLC, students will be introduced to the world through regular critical examination of popular media. To begin most days at TLC, students will read and discuss global news articles from a variety of sources/perspectives.

During discussion of news events, students will use Google Earth as a tool to record the location of each story (see attached media) and to develop a deeper understanding of the global context described by each story. This constant broadening of global perspective will ultimately develop each student's geographic literacy. This daily activity will enable students to better empathize with countries, cities, and ultimately people on streets they once perceived to be distant, and therefore different from, their own streets.

In addition, TLC will use the world’s citizens as resources for student learning. Regularly scheduled Skype sessions with individuals from around the world, each with different viewpoints and ways of living, will enable students to better empathize with others they encounter throughout their lives.

Students will reflect upon their learning through blog writing, sharing their learning with authentic audiences.

Projects initially will be crafted by teachers to develop skills and build community; as students advance from sixth to seventh grade, students will take more responsibility for designing the projects and teachers will move into more of a coaching role, ensuring that each student is well-positioned to design and carry out a thoughtful and powerful eighth grade capstone project.

Area private schools include Duke School, Durham Academy, and Triangle Day School. In these schools, subjects are taught in isolation and students have little time to engage in real-world problem solving that moves beyond the school walls. Of these schools, Duke School (DS) is the one school committed to interdisciplinary study and project-based learning. However, time devoted to these efforts is limited to one hour per day.

Eighth graders at DS do work on a capstone project, but that project need not have the social impact or depth required of TLC's capstone.

No area schools help students connect and empathize with global events in any depth. TLC is unique in its use of Google Earth to help students develop empathy, gain geographic literacy, and develop a global perspective.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

As a way to model the sort of learning that will happen at TLC, the founder, Steve Goldberg, has volunteered his time to Skype into a public school's 5th grade classroom in Detroit, MI, to lead students in a current events discussion about events in Syria. Steve has visited the class three times so far for an hour each visit.

The teacher has said that the students' level of engagement and the quality of the work they have produced (including screen-casts writing on a blog) has been some of the best work the students have done all year -- likely because they are being asked to empathize with what's going on right now in Syria and are being given time to process the information and broaden their view of the world. Steve has blogged about his visit to the class and the teacher in Detroit has also blogged about the visit from his perspective.

Steve is starting to tutor students of prospective TLC families and will soon be displaying artifacts that students make on the TLC website.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

When TLC opens with 20 students in the fall of 2013, it will change the lives of the 20 enrolled students and their families. Those students will work with the same teachers for three years and will serve as mentors for the students who begin in the fall of 2014. By the fall of 2015, the first graduating class from TLC will have launched their capstone projects, which will have an incredible impact on the world and on the local community. Teachers and parents from around the area and around the country (perhaps even from around the world) will come to visit to see how it's possible that such a small committed group is making such a difference. The idea is that TLC will help transform the conversation around education reform by showing what middle school students are capable of doing.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

A major barrier to having a diverse socio-economic student body is a lack of funds. The more money we are able to raise, the more our tuition can work as a sliding scale, ranging from those who can afford full tuition to those who can afford only a few hundred dollars. By applying for grants such as this one, by targeting angel donors, and by holding fundraisers, we will make our vision a reality. Once we achieve a diverse student body, we will have fascinating conversations and we will have the welcome barrier of finding ways to make those conversations meaningful and instructive. In most schools today -- even schools that appear diverse -- students are segregated/tracked into honors courses and rarely interact meaningfully with peers from different socio-economic and cultural situations.

After leading students on a service learning trip to Ethiopia, I gained a new perspective on the prosperity Americans often take for granted. I wanted to help students better empathize and understand that most of the world lives in conditions similar to those I encountered in Ethiopia.

Today's schools rarely allow space or time for students to reflect even briefly on the world beyond AP exams, let alone act to engage with that world. Students are capable of far more than we ask of them.

My students were not fully engaged; yet when I introduced stories such as the revolution in Egypt, students were hungry to learn more than the curriculum allowed.

It occurred to me that two years of coaching and mentoring could position exceptional students to change the world as eighth graders.
 
Working in a laptop school, I recognized the potential of technology as a tool for empathy. We can now, in a way never before possible, experience the world through the eyes of a far-away person.

I regularly speak on the design of enterprising cities and I also write for a number of Irish business and finance publications. I keep an archive of published articles, ideas and essays on my blog www.iamjohnegan.com

I am particularly passionate about the issue of youth enterprise for 3 reasons

1) I’m part of the generation of young people in Ireland most severely affected by the economic environment. Youth unemployment and emigration are among the highest in Europe. Enterprise can be a legitimate alternative to both.
2) I believe in enterprise as one of the most effective mechanisms for individual expression. Giving young people the opportunity to challenge themselves and innovate within an enterprising environment is socially progressive and financially sensible.
3) Ireland is a country in need of solutions and role models, particularly the generation of people between 20 and 30. A generation quickly becoming a forgotten generation , if we do not stand up to save ourselves, we can’t expect anyone else to do it for us. Entrepreneurs are the cultural icons of a zeitgeist; designing a society that facilitates their development is imperative.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Due to systemically high levels of emigration, Ireland is not a country with a history of celebrating it's youth or their endevours. Once again, Ireland is suffering high levels of youth unemployment and generational exodus; An entire demographic of solutions and perspectives are leaving Ireland - many will never return and no one is working to curate their collective experience. Young people have few options and fewer role models. Enterprise needs to be a legitimate career choice for young Irish people

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Archipelago is a community that works to develop, facilitate and profile the achievements of young Irish leaders in enterprise. Our explicit goal is to create an environment in Ireland conducive to the facilitation of young entrepreneurs. Through events, think tanks & community building Archipelago legitimises a latent economic presence the country never knew it had. Our events have domestic awareness of over 200,000 people. We give all our gate receipts away to one start-up at every event, we run a weekly twitter boost for one new start-up to help them build profile, we run community gettogethers & problem solving retreats, we host investor pitches for those seeking funding, organise mentoring work shops with established business leaders, use google hangouts to foster relationships between Irish entrepreneurs and industry peers in the UK and Europe. We draw attention and investment to the protagonists of a youth movement changing the way Ireland works.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

The Model:
A community defined by interaction points - Events, Investment, Advisory, Mentorship, Access, Profile. The community does not charge for membership - all elements are free and open to any young person who wishes to start or has started their own business. All revenue stems from sponsorships or charging external corporate partners fee's to access the community base

How it makes a difference:
Archipelago has made a difference to its members a number of ways; When a speaker appears at our talks we do a number of things to raise their profiles - we get them national press, radio and TV spots, we also video their talk and promote it digitally thereafter.
We have facilitated the investment of over €300k into Irish start-ups through investor matching and pitch events - we do not charge for this
We run private pitch your problem events where start-up can talk about their biggest problems and have them solved by a room full of their peers in a trusting environment

Primary Activities:
Archie Talks: The Archie Talks are run every 4-6 weeks, showcasing the stories of young entrepreneurial speakers and their companies. The events primary revenue stream is sponsorship. At every event, we give the total sum of our gate receipts to one start up - decided by public vote

Investors: We run pitch events once a quarter where young companies looking to fundraise get access to a private group of 20+ investors - we do not charge start-up for this

Pitch your problem: Most young start-ups encounter similar problems. Pitch your problem events allow a group of peers to work on behalf of one another in a positive collaborative environment

Profile: We constantly seek to develop the profile of our members in national media and online publications. We have established contacts with business magazines and national print press. We build all our press releases around the companies and their founders in stead of ourselves and make our newsletter about local start-up news and the community

Advisory:
We have two methods of advisory. Once a month we get an established business person to give 30-60 minutes of their time to talk to small groups of start-ups about what they're doing.
We also use google hangouts so that groups of 10 founders can discuss issues and opportunities with established professionals from overseas

Our focus is on community building, i.e an environment that fosters collaboration, interaction and mutual growth among peers. We define the parameters within which this community develops but we don not charge or control the membership.

What is the social impact you have had to date and how you measure it?

We are the largest community of young entrepreneurs in Ireland and the UK (8,000 subscribed, 340 members)
We have facilitated over €300,000 of seed investment though our pitch events
We have reached over 800,000 people collectively through the Archie Talks events
We have had 10,000 people look at our videos
We have raised over €60,000 in sponsorship in 6 months
We have given away over €5,000 to start-ups
We have brought over 30 young entrepreneurs from over seas to Ireland to share their experiences
Our site gets over 500 unique visitors a day
We have brought the international consortium of university entrepreneurs and Sandbox to Ireland

What barriers might hinder the success of your business? How do you plan to overcome them?

Barrier 1: Funding
We need to develop more ways to accept sponsorships
Some of our current proposals include
A sponsored app
Sponsored Hangouts
Sponsored young leaders section
Awards Program

We are also in the process of developing a start-up funding platform that will sustain itself. The platform will be a crowd sourced funding mechanism for early stage start-up unable to access bank funding

Barrier 2: Scale
How do we develop a model that can be scaled nationally
Solution - digital migration. Over the next year we will further develop our online platforms, principally for the purposes of national scaling.

How does your model address financial, social, and environmental sustainability?

Financial Sustainability: In the space of 6 months we have raised over €60,000 in sponsorship, sold over €10,000 of tickets and facilitated over €300,000 in investment. We believe our financial sustainability rests with our ability to accelerate the rate of sponsorships in order to build revenue generating models through crowd funding, investments and advertising

Social: The development of a community structure necessitates that we continuously act in the best interests of our community, failure to do so would result in the eventual redundance of the organisation. We monitor our effectiveness in the community primarily through our event analytics - how much coverage, how many ticket sales, how quickly they sold out and how many customers are recurring. We also monitor our social media interactions and video views which are hugely helpful indicators of community sustainability and growth.

Environmental: At this point in time, we are relatively unique within our space. Environmental sustainability relies on our maintaining our usefulness. We begin our podcast series in 2 weeks time which has been created specifically with developing our ability to assist the community in mind

How do you see social entrepreneurship contributing to the improvement of developing countries?

Social enterprise targets & serves the largest economic markets in the world. There are 3 billion people without access to proper sanitary facilities, 1.6 billion without access to grid electricity, 1 billion with to access to clean water. Population growth has meant that bottom of the pyramid innovation is the most important economic challenge of our time.

Social entrepreneurship is a bridging mechanism between the developing and developed wold. It is a particularly efficient method of transferring skills and technologies, ideas and solutions. Many social problems are homogeneous and solutions are often replicable in other geographies.

Social enterprise is, by it's nature, communal, inclusive & focused on the design of solutions for people centred problems. It requires participants to do a lot with a little, focus on impact & be constantly resourceful. I believe that social enterprise will become a primary instigator of civic innovation

What aspects of your stay in Uganda as part of the competition do you think you will find most challenging and rewarding?

Challenging:
1) Cultural context - it's difficult to get a sense of the social, environmental & cultural context of a country in a short space of time
2) Being relevant - If I got the opportunity to travel to Uganda, I would hope that the time I spent there would be relevant & beneficial to the people I interact with despite linguistic or cultural differences
3) The activities: I assume that the work itself will be challenging, both at a physical & interactive level. It is always a challenge to represent you & those you represent in a positive way especially when you put yourself in an unfamiliar situation

Rewarding:
1) I am fascinated to see how an established corporate entity like Ben & Jerry's develop socially sustainable commercial entities in a developing country in a civicly responsible way
2) The prospect of meeting & working with talented, ambitious, civically inclined changemakers within my peer group is very exciting

Selecione o estágio que melhor se aplica à solução

Inicial (um piloto que começou recentemente)

Há quanto tempo seu projeto está em atividade?

Implementado há menos de um ano

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Cosmorama e Tanabi são dois pequenos municípios do Noroeste do Estado de São Paulo. Cresci entre esses dois lugares aprazíveis e agora com um olhar sensível, noto a falta de vitalidade comunitária, traduzida nas inúmeras ocorrências cotidinas de violência psicológica e física em diversos contextos - no lar, na rua, nas escolas. Relatos de casos de bullying, conflitos familiares intensos, insegurança, hostilidade, alto índice de stress e ansiedade (aumento no uso de medicamentos anti-depressivos e ansiolíticos).

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

A solução está na comunicação, na forma de relacionar-se com si-mesmo (mente e corpo) e com o outro. As formas como nos relacionamos não são inatas, há inúmeras habilidades que podem ser aprendidas tornando nossas relações mais saudáveis e sustentáveis. A meditação e a Hatha Yoga é uma forma de melhorar o relacionamento com si-mesmo, expandindo a consciência corporal e diminuindo a ansiedade e o stress. A assertividade, a comunicação não-violenta e a empatia são estratégias eficientes para melhorar os relacionamentos com outras pessoas, tratam-de de ferramentas úteis para facilitar a compreensão do que se deseja comunicar de forma à aproximar o interlocutor, vinculá-lo e não afastá-lo, criando relações genuínas, favorecendo a confiança e a aprendizagem, processos co-criativos e a espontaneidade de cada ser, dado ao interesse e respeito de cada um por sua singularidade e a do outro.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Iniciativas vivenciais, tais como palestras, aulas de Yoga e círculos de diálogo estão acontecendo em 3 diferentes espaços e grupos:
As aulas de Yoga acontecem no Salão Paroquial (gentilmente cedido pela Paróquial) de Cosmorama/SP, tiveram início em abril de 2011 e acontecem uma vez por semana, às segundas-feiras. As aulas incluem exercícios respiratórios e meditativos, sequências de posturas corporais e o relaxamento final. O grupo tem participantes entre 10 e 70 anos, que vieram espontaneamente após a divulgação das aulas na comunidade.
As palestras aconteceram na Escola Estadual Padre Fidélis, no município de Tanabi/SP, em setembro de 2011, para cerca de 600 alunos de 1º e 2º anos do Ensino Médio. A escola necessitava de ações que amenizassem a ocorrência de casos de bullying, através de apresentação oral e gráfica sobre o tema, foi proposta uma nova forma de comunicar-se, pautada na empatia e na assertividade advinda da comunicação não-violenta. Há mais palestras sendo agendadas em dez escolas da cidade para acontecer em maio, na semana do Combate ao Abuso e Exploração Sexual de Crianças e Adolescentes.
Os círculos de diálogo vem acontecendo em diversos espaços e com diversas pessoas e grupos; especialmente no CREAS (Centro de Referência Especializado em Assistência Social) de Tanabi. Os técnicos do PAEIF (Serviço de Proteção e Atendimento Especializado a Famílias e Indivíduos), estão aprendendo a utilizar a empatia nos atendimentos com os assistidos para mediar conflitos, aconselhar e ensinar formas não-violentas de comunicação.

O Mercado: Quem são os seus pares e concorrentes? Identificar os outros que também estão trabalhando para solucionar as mesmas necessidades que você e o que você faz de diferente em relação a eles. Quais seriam os desafios impostos por esses concorrentes que impactariam no seu sucesso ou crescimento?

Em Cosmorama, alguns amigos, vizinhos e a paróquia da cidade, são parceiros.
Em Tanabi o projeto tem tomado maiores proporções, há diversos pares e colaboradores da rede socioassistencial e educacional, as ONGs Raio de Luz e Lar das Crianças, e estamos buscando uma maior participação empresarial e do comércio da cidade. Não há concorrentes quando se trata de fazer um mundo melhor. Nossos parceiros podem aumentar o impacto da proposta através do reconhecimento do valor do trabalho e incentivo social e de recursos para que possamos formar multiplicadores de empatia e facilitadores de círculos de diálogo, capacitados para mediar conflitos e difundir valores de não-violência e sustentação da vida.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

O resultado geral do projeto foi uma melhor interação de cada um com si-mesmo, verificada de forma qualitativa através de depoimento dos participantes das diversas iniciativas.
Os participantes da prática de Yoga relatam a diminuição do stress, mais disposição para executar as tarefas do dia-a-dia, bem-estar físico e mental, melhora na qualidade do sono e aumento da capacidade de relaxamento, expansão da consciência corporal e fortalecimento da auto-estima.
Os grupos participantes das palestras e círculos de diálogos descrevem o aumento do afeto por si-mesmo e pelos outros, diminuição da violência psicológica e física, causada por discussões e brigas; mais objetivos atingidos e necessidades atendidas, resultantes da melhoria da comunicação e do aumento da cooperação no grupo.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

O projeto está sendo alavancado através da efetiva participação dos parceiros que começaram a surgir e a acreditar na capacidade transformadora das iniciativas vivenciais propostas.
Minha expectativa é que o exercício de relacionar-se de forma empática se dissemine para além das fronteiras do projeto, melhorando a qualidade de vida e especialmente das relações das pessoas, nas ruas e nos lares, crianças, adolescentes, adultos e idosos de Cosmorama, Tanabi e região.
Espero que os círculos de diálogo comecem a ser multiplicados e as pessoas utilizem a assertividade e a comunicação não-violenta como ferramentas descomplicadas na resolução dos problemas, evitando desgastes emocionais, diminuindo a ocorrência de violência psicológica e física.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

A apatia de muitas pessoas, a descrença na vida e na possibilidade de transformação, a normose e a perda da capacidade de sonhar são as principais barreiras do projeto. Pretendo enfrentá-las através da fé e da coragem, do serviço à um propósito maior que é a sustentação da vida e a promoção da Cultura de Paz.

História: Queremos saber mais sobre o momento de descoberta desta solução. Conte-nos a história sobre onde e quando o(s) fundador(res) vislumbrou(aram) o potencial desta solução para mudar o mundo. [125 palavras]

Minha infância mágica vivida na pequena chácara com cães, galinhas, horta e pomar rodeada por pastagens e casas mais humildes, aprendi a primeira lição: na época, meus amigos não tinham tantos recursos materiais quanto eu e minha família, mas tinham tanto amor quanto nós, o que nos fazia seres da mesma matéria.

Compartilhei o que pude e entendi que quanto mais eu divido mais eu tenho e não o contrário, eis a lógica da abundância e do amor.

Na faculdade descobri o que eu já sabia: era preciso transformar a realidade e tornar o mundo melhor e mais justo. O meu conhecimento tinha se tornado uma responsabilidade, porque ter consciência é ter a capacidade de responder, de agir no mundo modificando-o. Como a prática de Yoga tinha tornado mais consciente minha relação com meu ser e a assertividade, a CNV e outros conjuntos de conhecimento como a Gestalt-Terapia favoreceram minhas relações interpessoais tornando-as mais saudáveis, conclui que era um dever transmitir essas idéias.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Many young people don’t know how to listen. They don’t necessarily realise it is a problem – even if their teachers do! Taking time to really listen and show empathy is not something they have thought about. Nor have they thought that they have the power to make a situation better or worse by the way they communicate to others; how their body language can affect how people react to them; and how they can help themselves to build up resilience against bullying. Under confident pupils often do not realise that there is something that they can do about it.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Peer to peer education project involving pupils (13+) leading classes and creating drama for pupils (11+) on communication skills. Older pupils are trained to be “Ambassadors” who learn how to deliver a class lesson on the topics of communication, body language and resilience. They get to practice and learn how to use interactive activities to teach these skills. By combining “under achievers” with confident classmates and giving them responsibility, they learn how to deliver the message that communication matters and also get put in the position of a leader. Younger pupils look up to older ones and enjoy the games and fun as well as the message. Great way for different age groups to bond.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Creating Youth Role Models

• Chose twenty pupils of mixed abilities (13+) to be “Ambassadors”.
• Half will be “Actors” and create two 10 minute improvised plays showing a situation “escalating “ either through bullying, discrimination or peer pressure. They then re-play the same scene with a productive ending.
• The other half will be trained to be “Facilitators”. They learn how to plan and deliver a lesson to their younger peers involving role play, games and personal evaluation.
• Presentation Day: The actors deliver the plays to all the classes of 11 year olds in a hall and then groups of combined actors and facilitators deliver the workshops to each individual class.
• Follow up: Two weeks later return to talk to both year groups and discuss lessons learned and impact.

Impact:

For Ambassadors: An excellent way to get more challenging pupils to take responsibility and get them to work together collaboratively. They realise that they can create change from the way they communicate and what it means to lead and manage a classroom. They are put in the teacher’s position of trying to get the class to listen and follow instructions from them.

For Younger pupils: Using drama and humour is a good way to learn. Having the older pupils deliver a class lesson provides them with peer role models and something to look forward to in following years if the school continues the programme. Teachers said:

“The environment and style of delivery really involved and positively engaged all the pupils, including those with behavioural or social problems.”

LEAP has a good reputation for conflict resolution skills—training young people to challenge conflict in themselves and their communities. Not necessarily with an emphasis on communication skills.

UK Resilience Programme works in our region using psychological techniques to teach about assertiveness, negotiation, decision-making, self-esteem.

“Create the Change” is a new project and not widely known outside our regional catchment area. Although PCI has more experience of youth empowerment and in using drama than other organisations, our challenge is to find the necessary funding and create a mechanism to train others to lead trainings for themselves.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

The programme has increased empathy skills, built resilience, increased trust and interaction between different year groups, and supported peer mentoring skills. In the 1st year of the programme of 118 Ambassadors, 82% said they built their confidence, and 77% gained presentation skills and ability to put across a message. 20% expressed empathy with their teachers and an increased awareness of their behaviour and listening skills in class. This included 50 Ambassadors who had been classified as “underachievers”, many of whom said their work in class had improved as a result of the training and responsibility entrusted to them.

While the greatest impact is on the Ambassadors themselves, the younger pupils increase their awareness of these issues and are engaged by older role models. Among the younger pupils, just under 80% said they are good at understanding how others feel, able to express their ideas and stand up for themselves, and are confident talking to other people.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

In next year 70% of 1300 young people from 15 participating schools in the programme will say they have developed either their ability:
• To listen, discuss and empathise with people who hold different opinions to their own;
• Have confidence and ability to express and stand up for themselves; or
• Their resilience and awareness of the way they react to situations and other people

We also plan to complete a training pack that can be adapted and used by others. At an international youth congress we will train 40 young educators to run the programme in their own region. We will identify another organisation to share our ideas and build from each other’s experiences.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

1) Getting into the schools to carry out the programmes as it requires a lot of outreach and promotion.
Solution: Allowing sufficient time for promotion on websites, social media and recruitment

2) Schools allowing sufficient time to evaluate the programme some 3 weeks after the presentations; trying to get the maximum effective evaluation in short a time as possible.
Solution: Refine evaluation process and find best/engaging methods. Explore ways of adapting the evaluation to be conducted online or used by teachers more easily in the classroom.

3) How to extend the programme beyond our area and expanding the programme that would require additional funding sources.
Solution: More funding research, attend conferences and promotional opportunities.

1) We ran an Ambassador programme to promote sustainable lifestyles and habits. One said, “why bother telling them anything because they don’t know how to listen.” Aha!
2) Working with a mentorship programme in an inner city school. One said “it’s always the same people who volunteer - why not include people who never get involved?”. Aha 2! So we asked a diverse group of 13 year olds to identify problems in their school. “Troubles escalate at our school”. So they created a short drama and called it “Escalation.” Then decided to combine drama followed by youth led workshops to show how better communication skills involving empathy, body language and resilience (as a way of dealing with bullying), can all help turn things around.

We are currently working in partnership with the Paul Hamlyn Foundation. We are part of a Herfordshire partnership providing educational experiences for pupils. We are working to establish partnerships with other organisations, which can complement each others’ work including a drama academy which trains students in “applied theatre”. We have two schools where we have an ongoing partnership. If we increased staff we could spend more time to build up partnerships.

Tell us about your personal background. Why are you passionate about this issue? Making an idea a reality takes innovation, dedication and strong leadership. Do you have the necessary entrepreneurial skills to realize your vision?

I am a driven by a passion for learning and action for social change, mainly through capacity building, skills sharing and innovation.My professional development includes work experience in the non-profit and ethical business fields and in areas such as environment, sustainability and youth entrepreneurship. In the last year I have been working for Worldview Impact Foundation and have committed to encourage individuals to fight climate change, poverty and injustice through community participatory projects and appropriate low-cost clean technologies. This has provided me a great opportunity to explore further these topics and design a green jobs creation project which i will be showcasing at the 6th World Youth Congress and at the UN Conference on Sustainable Development in Rio de Janeiro this coming June.
My enthusiasm and determination have then lead me to set up my own social enterprise. With Greenecho I hope
to encourage and inspire youngsters to cooperate
together and to develop green leadership skills through effective mechanisms of learning, practical business initiatives and overseas connections with ongoing farming activities.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

The project's aim is to involve underprivileged students in entrepreneurial activities in order to advance leadership and problem solving and to foster green habits and product development skills. By putting them together to run their own business idea will help not only to improve their sense of self-esteem and confidence, but also to learn more about extra-curricula topics such as media, marketing, branding, eco-business and design. Once these goals will be achieved, the apprentices will become mentors and train other students in social entrepreneurship and Fair Trade. The strength of Greenecho is in its capacity to bring benefits to different targets and combine all together three important components such as sustainability, entrepreneurship and social integration.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

This is an excellent way to create a greater sense of unity between the young population, while at the same time teaching those involved entrepreneurial skills. I believe there is a need to shift from a “Business as usual” approach. This can start with young entrepreneurs who can make changes around the world; creating bridges between business, environment and sustainability. The idea of equipping young people with eco-friendly entrepreneurship skills comes from my relationships with a few school teachers. Not only did they made me aware of the gap in this specific sector but also of the difficulties those kids face in finding their social place and shaping their roles in the community. Schools can offer a solid platform for innovative learning experience, help promote active citizenship and potentially become an incubator for youth led small scale businesses.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

The project is oriented to promote the business skills of the youngsters, create income generation for the farmers and enable teenagers to use the concepts of environmental protection and sustainable development to impact on their daily behavior. To accomplish these objectives, a series of technical training and communication events have been organized in order to help the participants to successfully perform their tasks: pack and rebrand organic tea from Paradise Farm in Sri Lanka and then sell it at a higher price directly to consumers.The students have been divided in teams and assigned specific roles such as 1) advertisement/marketing, 2) design and branding, 3) fundraising,/events management, 4) sales.

O Mercado: Quem são os seus pares e concorrentes? Identificar os outros que também estão trabalhando para solucionar as mesmas necessidades que você e o que você faz de diferente em relação a eles. Quais seriam os desafios impostos por esses concorrentes que impactariam no seu sucesso ou crescimento?

On the marketplace there are many valuable organizations promoting youth entrepreneurship and green education (e.g. Mosaic, Be the Change etc). My research however, has shown that Greenecho features an international perspective that other programmes lack (e.g. Roots and Shoots works in the London boroughs of Lambeth and Southwark and addresses mainly UK sustainability issues) and targets in general a younger age group (e.g. Prince’s Trust Enterprise Programme supports unemployed young people aged 18-30 ). I believe its innovative aspect lies also in the combination of education and practical action which makes it a comprehensive development experience (e.g. Youth Fair Trade Initiative was a strong advocating project but missed a viable business component).

IMPACTO SOCIAL

What is the social impact you have had to date and how you measure it?

The students have been engaging far more with the local community that they would otherwise have, trough local fairs and special events held at the school. They are also far more aware of food issues and sustainability measurable in terms of their commitment in promoting Fair Trade via the sale and distribution of green tea. Through team work and tailored mentoring programmes the students themselves have also gained enormously in terms of the following: organizational and numeracy skills, conflict management, aspiration, work ethic, employability, project management. They are much more articulate and confident of attracting clients thanks to enhanced sales and communication abilities.

What barriers might hinder the success of your business? How do you plan to overcome them?

Potential barriers are limited outlets and possibly the students lack of confidence in approaching local businesses to secure pitches. Up to date the students have shown strong commitment and capability in gaining the neighborhood marketplace. For example they recently involved with another local community project organized by ‘food matters’ in which produce grown at the school and Paradise Farm green tea will be sold in the summer at local Waitrose. So far both schools and students are responding well to the green learning experience and likewise the targeted buyer community and the supply chain in Sri Lanka.

How does your model address financial, social, and environmental sustainability?

Financial sustainability has been addressed by generating extra income for the women working at the Farm and securing a considerable margin of profit for the students which will be reinvested back into the project. Environmental issues are also a critical component of the business. The students have been educated to minimize waste and use only recycling material to market and rebrand the their product. The tea is grown organically in the pristine rainforest of Paradise Farm and is certified Fair Trade and IMO. Local communities and cafés have also been sensitized to purchase eco-friendly products and support social causes. The students are already training up other peers at school and envisage that the project will be a legacy that they will leave with younger apprentices in order for it to continue in the future. After a live skype meeting with the team on the ground and a workshop focused on Sri Lanka, the students have been persuaded to raise additional funding themselves. This in order to finance an educational trip at Paradise Farm and share their business project with other students overseas.

Awareness & learning

How do you see social entrepreneurship contributing to the improvement of developing countries?

Most poor people do not want to get by on charity; they want a sustainable way of making a living. Social entrepreneurs can create awareness and provide support to initiatives that addresses the nexus of poverty and environment; can provide capacity building and training for young people in the developing countries for employment generation; can also share expertise and business acumen with peers and help transform the poorest countries into emerging markets. A powerful synergy can be created by harnessing the entrepreneurial talent of local people which should be nurtured and developed in order to make them self-sufficient and self-reliant.

What aspects of your stay in Uganda as part of the competition do you think you will find most challenging and rewarding?

The most interesting part of the trip will be working together along side the local community and challenging myself for ten days to be a social entrepreneur on the ground. I believe this is a great opportunity to experience directly grassroots ways of doing social business and share ideas with experienced young people in a developing country. A personal and professional interest for Fair Trade issues makes me particularly keen on exploring further this topic and learn more about Ben &Jerry’s farming cooperative. Considering my strong commitment in fighting climate change I would also like to learn more about the community response to environmental concerns. Being Greenecho wholly involved in organic farming and international development, I believe this experience would be highly beneficial for myself and the future of the business.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

The Make Change Matter Service Learning program ran at 2 elementary schools in Fort Collins, Colorado, in Fall 2011. The 510 students raised $2,365 and gave students at a primary school in Cambodia and a teacher for a year. Both schools intend to use the program again in Fall 2012 and 4 middle schools with a total of 460 students will conduct the program this sring.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

By 2015 we will be working with 100 schools and raising $170,000 to support schools in Cambodia.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

The single most important barrier to the success is not having a full time program coordinator to administer the schools we expect to conduct the program in fall 2012 and market MCM to additional schools in Colorado and the United States. We are temporarily realigning the Executive Director's priorities so she can concentrate on working with the schools to make sure the initial phase of the MCM implementation are successful.

Kari Grady Grossman, SSI's Executive Director, was asked by the curriculum director of the International Baccalaureate program in the Poudre Valley School District in Fort Collins, Colorado, to write a youth edition of her award-winning book, Bones that Float, about adopting her son from Cambodia. This gave Kari the idea to expand from a simple school-wide read program to a comphrehensive service learning program. She felt that the Make Change Matter program, which includes an interactive web site, would give middle school children the opportunities to learn about the difficulties of children in rural, poor Cambodia to get a basic education. She decided that the goal of the MCM porgram is to make the middle school children more aware of the less fortunate in a third world country and create a lifelong empahty to help children become educated and imprve their economic status in the futre. Part of the service learning program is to raise money to help support SSI's schools in Cambodia.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Students classified as Emotionally Disturbed (ED) warrant special concern for society. Students in this category generally have the worst prognosis in terms of high school graduation, academic achievement, and future problems with anti-social behavior as compared to other students.

Specifically, students classified as ED have the highest drop-out rate, fail more courses, miss more days of school, are suspended more, earn the lowest grades, are more likely to be involved in the criminal justice system, and are more likely to be retained at grade as compared to all other groups of students nation-wide.

Finally, because of their disproportionate representation in the category of ED, the outcomes of this classification are particularly devastating to African American males.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) is the process of acquiring the
skills to recognize and manage emotions, develop empathy for others, make responsible decisions, establish positive relationships, and handle challenging situations effectively. SEL programming can help re-mediate the challenges that students with ED in the following ways:

1)Programs outside of an SEL framework are often treated as additions to the core curriculum instead of integral parts of that curriculum. This isolation reduces their conceptual coherence and sustainability.

2)Because of the varying goals of these programs, they tend to be implemented in short-term ways with little connection to each other. This fragmentation dilutes the potential effectiveness of these programs and negatively affects sustainability.

As such, promoting an SEL framework in schools will increase the coherence of programming, promote sustainability, and support the social and emotional development of students classified as ED.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

After years of improvement, a school in our district that served students classified as ED was in trouble. Their grades were down and anti-social student behavior was on the rise. The school had introduced a myriad of programs including Emotional Literacy, Second Step, the Power of Choice and PBIS to name a few. Combined with the introduction of Common Core academic standards the teachers in school were exhausted. Programming that was being implemented with purpose and enthusiasm before was now lackluster as teachers experienced initiative overload. Program outcomes faltered, and the administration proposed bringing in additional programming to address those new challenges.

The school called a district specialist in to help get back their positive outcomes. They wanted to improve their program fidelity and sustainability while increasing teacher buy-in to the work.

Instead of recommending new programming, the specialist worked to align their programming to a SEL framework, creating a common language that was focused on outcomes that the whole school community could understand. They worked to make connections between various program and reduced overlaps while strengthening other areas based on student data. The team conducted a sustainability review to determine whether their systems were adequate to sustain quality programming. Instead of seeing six different programs and activities operating in their school, teachers began to see one framework - SEL, and the programming to support it.

As a result, fidelity increased, and program outcomes were restored.

O Mercado: Quem são os seus pares e concorrentes? Identificar os outros que também estão trabalhando para solucionar as mesmas necessidades que você e o que você faz de diferente em relação a eles. Quais seriam os desafios impostos por esses concorrentes que impactariam no seu sucesso ou crescimento?

SEL programming in District 75 is supported by the Health Emotion and Behavior Laboratory at Yale University. Our department works in tandem with the departments of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports, Literacy, Health, Arts, and Transition to support schools development, implementation, and sustainability of a coordinated approach to student social and emotional development.

The SEL framework is unique because it does not necessarily recommended a specific curriculum or approach as much as it provides a framework for multiple approaches to speak to each other with regards to outcomes and program activities.

The major limitation in growth is capacity. With budget cuts, the district only hires one SEL specialist for all of its 56 school organizations.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

According to studies, SEL participants demonstrated significantly improved social and emotional skills, attitudes, behavior, and academic performance that reflected an 11-percentile-point gain in achievement.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

We are in the process of purchasing the Devereux Student Strengths Assessment (DESSA) in order to better measure student growth in the following areas : Self-Management, Social-Awareness, Self-Awareness, Goal Directed Behavior, Relationship Skills, Personal Responsibility, Decision Making, and Optimistic Thinking. These areas are related to psychological resilience and are areas of remediation that will allow our students to leave District 75 for a less restrictive educational placement.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

Capacity and coordination are the major barriers to success. While there is work in Social Emotional Learning being conducted across the district it is not coordinated nor systemic and this affects outcomes. We are actively engaging other departments in District 75 to coordinate our efforts. Creating time to meet at this level while providing direct services for schools is a major challenge. Increasing capacity by providing paid time for collaboration of members at the district so that they can support schools in organization their approach can help produce more effective outcomes. We are doing this by writing an grant for the Institute of Education Sciences to further the work.

Social Emotional Learning has the potential to address many of the challenges faced by our students classified as ED, but it must be high quality and delivered with a coordinated approach and clear outcomes. I realized this when I went to support a school and the teachers had only a vague idea about SEL programming in the school and could not articulate how it helped students be college and career ready. Furthermore, the counselors in the school, responsible for students’ social-emotional development could not speak to how their counseling dovetailed with programming in the school. To be effective, SEL instruction should be coordinated, ubiquitous, and systemic in the school environment. Because students classified as ED have such challenging outcomes, if we can affect this small population of students, we can have a huge effect on educational and societal outcomes at large.

Quando a escola foi criada, as Diretoras pretendiam trabalhar com a educação voltada para a Sustentabilidade, mas foi percebido que não adiantava trabalhar sustentabilidade se não criássemos seres sustentáveis e responsáveis com o mundo e com os outros, então iniciou-se o Projeto VIVE - Vivendo Valores. Com ele veio o trabalho de autonomia com os alunos, eles passaram a apresentar e a cuidar da escola, após isso percebemos que era mais fácil atingir todos os alunos através do uso de jogos, a escola então passou a oferecer treinamento para os funcionários que passaram a aplicar jogos 1 vez na semana para todos os alunos - sempre com o discurso de contextualizar através de um jogo, a vida real.

Já temos empresas parceiras, como uma construtora, uma imobiliária e um supermercado, essa parceria facilita espalhar a nossa mensagem e funciona como uma mediação do nosso projeto.

Qual o perfil da equipe (colaboradores, voluntários etc.) que vai garantir o cumprimento das metas de crescimento identificadas por você na seção ‘Impacto Social’?

São todos treinados e interessados em trabalhar o projeto. Para participar do projeto basta estar interessado em fazê-lo, deve estar sempre disposto a convencer e mobilizar outras pessoas a entrar no projeto. Espalhar os VALORES e boas ações é difícil quando não se tem interesse, porém é fácil quando se faz da forma correta.

Implementado há menos de um ano

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

The Lao education system does not foster the development of youth who are able to think critically and creatively, see things from others perspectives, empathize, solve problems for themselves, work independently, or collaborate with others. DFC responds directly to the ministry's vision for education by providing a child-centered, experiential and holistic process that engages students and fosters empathy, critical thinking, independence and community service. This will be beneficial to the development of Laos over the next years, and ensure that the youth are encouraged by the education system to be problem solvers, and reduce the reliance on foreign influence in the development process, while at the same time engaging students and their communities in education in general.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

We will use Design for Change (DFC)(an established project-based learning program) in the Lao context with a group of 7 schools. DFC puts children at the centre of learning. It engages and empowers children by asking what bothers them, and by empathizing with people affected by that problem, they work together in small groups to design and implement creative solutions. We will support our pilot schools through the process this year, and their stories and experiences will be shared in Laos and with DFC world to promote DFC to the community and encourage other schools to participate in the future. As children choose issues that directly affect them, and must work with the people connected to those problems, they invariably involve the wider community in school activities. In the future, the stories from participating schools will be used to encourage the Ministry of Education to implement Design for Change, with the ultimate goal to have DFC as part of the national curriculum.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

On a large scale, this will hopefully impact the education system as a whole, providing a project-based approach to learning which has not been seen in Lao schools before.

On an individual school level, DFC impacts every child that is involved. The DFC process - FEEL (identify problems, understand root causes and gain empathy), IMAGINE (generate solutions that tackle the root causes of your problem), DO (implement your solutions) and SHARE (reflect on the process and tell others what you have done)- has empathy, change and collaboration at its heart. Our curriculum and trainings, as well as mentoring, guides schools through this process. We share progress through facebook and our website, and the videos, readers and documentary will also help us to share the inspiration.

At Sompanya School, one of the DFC challenge schools, the issue of exclusion and bullying came up in the feel stage, and in order to generate solutions, the students prepared for a week to understand the root causes and perspectives of all parties involved. They brainstormed positive and negative behaviours towards others, role played situations where people were included and excluded, made a strength quilt to focus on the positives of all members of the group, and watched a video on bullying. This enabled them to gain empathy for victims and bullies, see themselves as part of the problem and the solutions, and see how empowering positive behaviour can be. This has led them to generate meaningful and powerful solutions which promote solidarity, inclusion and friendship at their school.

There are no direct competitors in Laos who are implementing DFC specifically or an empathy based project style of learning; however, others are engaged in trying to improve the state of the Lao education system to be more holistic and promote active and experiential learning in general. These are not so much competitors as peers, as we can learn from the best practice of others in terms of implementation and dealing with government officials.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Design for Change was implemented with one school in 2011, and this story has inspired 7 more schools to take the DFC Challenge. In 2012 the team has run introductory workshops, process training, and we are currently mentoring schools through the feel stage of the process. By participating in DFC schools are providing students with an engaging project based learning experience and a chance to realise that they too can make a difference. Students are getting the chance to engage in their own education and at the same time learning valuable life skills of gaining empathy, problem solving, teamwork and communication skills. Teachers too, while guiding students through this process, are more engaged and developing themselves professionally by increasing their exposure to experiential learning and ability to guide students through careful questioning techniques.
While in its infancy and still in need of refinement, the response to DFC so far in Laos has been positive.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

In 2012 we plan to mentor these 7 schools through the DFC challenge, collect videos, promote and share stories through a video and documentary screening, showcase DFC at the Asia-Europe People's Forum and if funding permits, produce DFC readers in Lao language to promote literacy and give something back to the schools that have participated. In the next 2 to 3 years, we would hope to secure support from the Ministry of Education in Laos, to scale up the project and use the stories and experiences from this year to improve our training and support and involve more schools in the challenge, especially rural schools. If continued funding is secured, we will continue the production of readers in Lao language to promote literacy and continue the SHARE stage of DFC to inspire others to join.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

There are potential barriers to success:
- Morale and participation of the challenge schools until the share stage - overcome with one on one mentoring and support
- Funding - overcome by continuing to seek funding from a range of sources
- Thinking and questioning capacity of the teachers / volunteers leading the process and clarity of Lao tools - overcome by improving the training process, video process in Lao language as another tool with the curriculum
- Relationship and support from MOE - overcome by linking with PADETC and their established close working relationship and trust
- Expanding to rural areas - geographic barriers - distance and terrain - overcome by testing the model in urban areas first, engage local volunteers to monitor in rural areas

Having watched Kiran Bir Sethi’s inspiring talk on TED.com in 2010 and then discovering the Design For Change website Anfernee was excited by the "I Can" message of DFC, as well as the power of what the children showcased in Kiran's talk had done in India. Anfernee saw DFC as a potential solution to the challenges being faced in schools in Laos where traditionally teachers spoke and students listened. Here was an opportunity to allow students to express matters that really bothered them and then to go out and do something about it!

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

The quality and language of personal interaction in Indian schools - teachers with students and students amongst themselves is often marked by harshness of tone, insensitivity towards others’ feelings and a sense of inadequacy in expressing thoughts, ideas and feelings. Authoritarianism and judgement pervade majority of teacher- student interactions in schools across the country.

In our classrooms we are primarily concerned with teaching and completing syllabus, but many of our children are unable to speak spontaneously and/or listen; they are unable to take turns to share ideas or to contribute effectively in a group situation. All these are basic requirements for being well-adjusted future citizens of this world.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

No concerted attempt has been made nationwide to actually improve the culture of interpersonal communication that takes place in our schools even though the NCERT's National Curricular Framework 2005 makes detailed references to a policy of inclusion, nurturing an enabling environment and good behaviour through a policy of participatory management. Schools however don’t have a clear strategy to implement these ideas and place social and emotional well-being of our pupils at the heart of all school reforms.

TTF’s idea is:
1. To use the Whole School Quality Circle Time Model developed by Jenny Mosley, the well-known teacher trainer, drama therapist and author from the UK and effectively use it in schools (both primary and secondary levels).
2.To embed systems for listening to young people in schools.
3.Develop learning standards for social and emotional development that could be used across grades for all Indian Schools.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Circle Time as a structured group process teaches young people how to understand themselves and relate to others. It is founded on mutual respect and equality, which would be basis for activating empathy. The circle time method involves the teacher in a weekly 35-40 minutes meeting where all the participants including the teacher, sit in a circle and take an equal responsibility for solving issues the group members have themselves highlighted. The structures and techniques within Circle Time teach individuals to communicate more clearly, directly and honestly with each other. By learning to express their feelings in a clear way, they learn to develop empathy and positive relationships.

The strategies involved for children include cooperative games, pair work, rounds, drama techniques, puppet play - each strategy appropriate to the emotional and intellectual level of the group.
At the heart of the Circle time model for pupils (from ages 2 onwards) is a period time-tabled to take place once a week. It involves the whole class sitting in a circle – non-hierarchical and inclusive – to learn relationship skills and explore issues relating to personal, social, moral and health education. The Circle meetings aim to encourage participation, the development of self discipline, negotiation, assertive communication and democratic group process alongside the skills of attending, speaking, listening, observing, thinking and concentrating.

There aren't many organisations in India who are concertedly working with teachers to help them focus on the social-emotional well-being of their students. This is why we are shortly embarking on an extended initiative of researching and developing standards in the affective learning domain for Indian students (ie for social and emotional development).

What sets TTF apart is the fact that we recognise that teachers form THE vital key to all successful innovations in school education and hence we place teachers at the heart of all our interventions in schools across India. For us at TTF the overall well-being and self esteem of every teacher we work with is as important as the skills and knowledge we enable them with so that they can engage more effectively with their students.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

The Pilot SASS Project was conceived as an Action Research to enable us to first understand the factors that contribute to making schools safe and sensitive and then determine the impact of the SASS intervention on the school’s policies, spaces and interactions.

What we found was that:
1.Teacher interactions with students had become measurably more positive in terms of being less harsh (teachers' perceptions shifted from 28% to 11%) and encouraging all students to participate more in class (5th and 6th Graders' perceptions shifted from 77% to 91%).
2.Teachers’ recognition and praise of students was not just restricted to academic achievement (3rd & 4th Graders reported a shift from 69% to 84%, corroborated by teachers' own response regarding giving students praise for just exam results that dropped from 40% to 22%)
3.Teachers’ perception of student discipline had considerably improved in that it was less externally imposed (dropped from 53% to 26%)

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

We plan to reach out to 60 schools(across 3 years)and impact 2500 teachers and 200,000 pupils in terms:
1. Higher teacher morale
2. Happier, more confident and self-disciplined students
3. Cheerful classroom interactions; warmer interactions between principal, school management and teachers
4. The development of Whole School Behaviour Policies that ensures a consistent policy of warmth, respect and positive interactions amongst everyone in each school.

We are also beginning next month a 30 month project for developing graded learning standards for students' social and emotional development that will eventually form the backbone for Indian school education system's efforts at humanising classroom practices. This is being done with support from Wipro Applying Thought in Schools.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

Teachers find it difficult to change their demeanour and loosen up, trust their students and treat them with respect.The quality circle time ethos (of gentleness, respect, open honest communication, warmth and positivity) could be limited to the QCT Sessions alone and not in routine interactions between teachers with their students. The latter is vital for activating empathy amongst young people. While all educators on the surface aver that the affective domain is as important as the cognitive domain in school education, it's still seen as a warm fuzzy area that's not given much priority in terms of implementation and seen as quite problematic in terms of assessment. That's the reason why TTF plans develop learning standards for social and emotional growth of Indian children.

Over the years while TTF provided a range of interesting teacher development programmes that focus on equipping teachers with a range of classroom teaching strategies, they are meaningless if the teacher continued to look upon pupils as people who needed to be 'controlled' and coerced. This was something deeply embedded in Indian school teachers. To cite Kumar(1991) "At the heart of this pedagogic relationship lay the Brahminical ideal of the teacher’s moral authority. The teacher was supposed to possess sacred knowledge which he knew best how to transfer to a student... the teacher’s role vis-à-vis the children continued to follow the Brahminical idea…
… The teacher as a guru thus survived the onslaught of colonization. His moral authority over children remained unchallenged, and the child’s need to be treated as an individual remained a foreign idea…the schoolteacher continued to perform an ancient political function, that of subduing the spirit of curiosity and questioning..."

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

1 em cada 3 estudantes até 14 anos no Brasil já sofreu agressão na escola: não existe escola sem bullying. As crianças são pressionadas para que tenham um melhor desempenho, cada vez mais cedo. Essas mesmas crianças experimentam um estresse considerável em suas vidas, carregando sobre seus ombros responsabilidades e fardos emocionais muito maiores do que as crianças experimentavam há apenas dez anos. As escolas tendem a focar no refinamento das competências cognitivas, e nenhuma ênfase é dada em educar as crianças na resolução dos seus conflitos internos e das suas emoções desequilibradas, que elas trazem todos os dias à escola. Tudo isso está causando uma situação quase insuportável com professores estressados e desanimados e crianças briguentas e desinteressadas em aprender.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

O projeto “EduCoração: Educação para Empatia e Ética” ensina crianças, de forma lúdica e criativa, importantes técnicas de auto-gerenciamento, equilíbrio emocional, e foco mental, que lhes serão úteis para o resto das suas vidas, de forma lúdica e criativa. O projeto desenvolve na criança a capacidade de gerenciar o estresse e transformar as emoções negativas em atitudes positivas, através de técnicas práticas para estimular a “resposta de relaxamento” e diminuir os hormônios prejudiciais do estresse. Isso ajuda a criança a desenvolver a habilidade de enfrentar os desafios da vida com energia e otimismo. A contação de histórias divertidas e as atividades que desenvolvem as inteligências múltiplas inspiram nas crianças valores éticos universais e libertam a plena expressão de suas potencialidades. Essa metodologia é compartilhada com professores e pais de escolas públicas e privadas em todo o país.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Em vários estados do Brasil, a capacitação de 48 horas é gratuitamente oferecida para professores das escolas públicas que não tem recursos para investir em treinamentos. A capacitação inclui exercícios e práticas de gerenciar seu próprio estresse - yoga, respiração diafragmática, auto-massagem, relaxamento profundo e meditação. Depois essas técnicas são passadas para as crianças na sala de aula – que em pouco tempo totalmente transforma a sala de aula em um ambiente de paz. Durante a capacitação os professores são inspirados a resgatar seu encantamento na nobre missão de ensino, e em desenvolver sua própria criatividade em contação de histórias e teatro para tornar o ensino mais atrativo e dinâmico. Os professores fazem exercícios de teatro, descobrindo seu “artista interior” e aprendem como contar histórias no “Círculo Mágico”, um cenário construído no chão com bonecos e objetos comuns, para fascinar as crianças e passar as mensagens éticas de forma lúdica. Os professores são capacitados a criar salas de aula democráticas, com reuniões de escuta empática, criação coletivas de regras, currículos negociados, e projetos cooperativos. Tudo isso, através de uma abordagem artística e dinâmica desenvolve na escola uma consciência coletiva e cooperativa, através da construção do espírito de equipe. E especialmente resgata a auto-estima do professor e dos estudantes.

Nossa abordagem se diferencia pela criatividade: as histórias são charmosas com fantasia e drama, contadas com música, gestos, dança, e até rap! Também a abordagem sistêmica – trabalhando com corpo, intelecto, emoção e espírito – no nível individual e coletivo simultaneamente, promove mudanças positivas aceleradas. O uso de teatro na educação dinamiza a sala de aula e canaliza a agitação das crianças em criatividade. A abordagem não é meramente verbal, com discussões sobre ética e valores, mas utiliza exercícios práticos de respiração, relaxamento e coerência cardíaca para abrir o coração. Isso resulta numa EXPERIÊNCIA de empatia que surge do interior. O clima de positividade gerada substitui o bullying, a violência e conflitos na sala de aula com comunicação empática e compaixão.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Capacitamos aproximadamente mil professores em todo Brasil, treinando multiplicadores em 10 cidades. Espalhamos um "kit Círculo de Amor" para creche e pré-escola, para mais do 3000 pais e professores, que inclui manual, CD e DVD com as técnicas usadas no programa EduCoração.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

No próximo ano, queremos treinar e coordenar 50 multiplicadores que possam expandir EduCoraçao por todo o país, levando o projeto para Secretarias de Educação em 25 cidades, e treinando gratuitamente centenas de professores de ensino público. Nos próximos 3 anos, ampliar o número de multiplicadores e assim aumentar o número de professores atingidos. Criar e desenvolver um "kit completo" para ensino fundamental (1o a 5o ano), com manual; CD; DVD; "Cartas de Emoção" (baseadas nas pesquisas do Dr. Paul Ekman), que ensinam as crianças a reconhecer e equilibrar suas emoções; flipcharts lúdicos sobre a fisiologia da respiração e do cérebro; e materiais para contação de histórias. Distribuir estes Kits a preço de custo para milhares de professores e pais em todo o país.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

A grande barreira é o fato que os professores que poderiam aproveitar muito da nossa capacitação são da rede pública e portanto não tem condição financeira de pagar. Mesmo que nossos facilitadores são pessoas dedicadas a um ideal e não visam lucro, teremos custos básicos e inevitáveis como transporte, alimentação, materiais, etc. Através de projetos como Changemakers, esperamos ter um fundo inicial para alavancar o Projeto; e com o sucesso dos primeiros meses de capacitação, certamente vamos atrair outros doadores e investimentos para dar continuidade e expansão da capacitação de professores no EduCoração.

Quando a fundadora do projeto experimentou em si mesma a grande transformação interna que resulta nessas práticas e começou a ensinar adultos como transformar suas vidas também, se tornou obvio que estas práticas deveriam começar desde a infância para que a pessoa cresça com valores internos firmes e uma atitude positiva na vida que poderia superar todos os obstáculos. Com contínuos estudos e pesquisas que a fundadora fez na psicologia, endocrinologia e neurociência atual confirmou a sua convicção que a empatia é a base da ética e das atitudes pró-sociais, que são essenciais para a formação de uma nova civilização de cooperação e compaixão.

É importante não somente por sua ajuda financeira para tornar o projeto sustentável a longo prazo, mas para formar uma rede de parceiros unidos na missão de trazer para o campo de educação a importância da humanização. Podemos juntar as mãos enfatizando a importância de laços afetivos na sala da aula, e há necessidade de criar um clima de empatia e compreensão mútua entre as crianças, pais e professores - e não somente mobilizar campanhas "anti-bullying".

Qual o perfil da equipe (colaboradores, voluntários etc.) que vai garantir o cumprimento das metas de crescimento identificadas por você na seção ‘Impacto Social’?

O Instituto Visão Futuro, e na rede nacional, é composto de psicólogas, educadores, artistas, e facilitadores de vivências interpessoais e jogos cooperativos, que traz uma visão sistêmica ao assunto e utilizam as inteligências múltiplas em todas as atuações. Mas, mais do que as qualificações da equipe, destaca a dedicação total de todos na equipe a um novo paradigma de vitalidade comunitária e verdadeira democracia baseada no amor - que tem que começar com as crianças!

Redes serão simultaneamente a necessidade e a oferta, pois nesta época de materialismo e ansiedade, precisamos juntar forças para oferecer uma alternativa para educadores e pais que restaura o carinho e confiança entre as pessoas e proporciona paz e alegria na escola e no lar. Uma rede forte que poderia mobilizar eventos em parceria e divulgar na mídia a importância do amor e empatia na educação.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

The problems we are trying to solve is appreciation for diversity. We want to change the perception that students have about each other and get them talking about there background as much a possible. We want students to be proud of there heritage and to understand the different set of people surrounding them as a whole.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Our solution is to work with the Florida Anti-Defamation League and get as many schools in district 2 and possibly in the county to be designated as No Place for Hate School. This would boost school morale on a much larger scale, allowing room to know there fellow classmates on a level unimaginable.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Taking my school as an example, we integrated the NPFH program into our curriculum and had students interact by talking about the vast different culture that makes up our school. We also expose them to the different sexual orientation that our community has and how to relate to those group of individuals. The program taught students how to communicate with them and showed them some of the programs they face in society. As well as the problems of every other race and religion. Student learned how there in-actions are hurting them and the remarks that are said only prevents them for interactive.

Student even learned how bully plays a role and how to stop bullying. All this was possible through ADL No Place for Hate Program.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

The impact to our solution to date is still growing. Taking my school as an example, students are talking more about race and the mix diversity our community has to offer. We stand out more in more way than one. Students show appreciation to the program by wearing the No Place for Hate Pin and talking about the latest challenge that the Diversity Committee put together and want to hear the SGA Department of Cultural Affairs reminders and quotes. Students want to understand why certain cultures act the way they do and how to communicate and respect those cultures. Student just how interest, especially after the training.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

Our project impact is to get Miami-Dade County District 2 be designated as a Community of Respect by the Anti-Defamation League and eventually get the entire county to do so as well.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

The major barrier might be communicating with the schools and particular the private schools in the area. We plan to overcome those barriers by working with the Miami-Dade Schools Police Department and with the schools affiliated with Catholic schools system to remove our barriers. We will also send out newsletters to update individuals on our efforts.

The idea wasn't new. It was created by the Anti-Defamation League. But the idea to get certain schools in one district to be a NPFH school was created at a meeting of student leaders who had share the same passion for the program. We saw how our school learned from it and wanted to share the experience.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

The challenge I am resolving is how to teach a student - regardless of age, socio-economic background, or learning style - to fully develop the leadership character of empathy as a crucial step to grooming happy, productive individuals in our communities.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Sensory Immersion is the solution. Engaging the right side of the brain by slightly entertaining it, allows the left side of the brain to be open, to focus and to learn new concepts undistracted. Sensory immersion engages all the senses allowing the whole body to "learn" new concepts, and helps students empathize and identify with as well as retain information. Sensory immersion is an emotional experience that taps into the nervous system, the mind and the emotions of the person simultaneously.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

The instrumental music is playing as the students walk into the "classroom." Just about any room can work (a planetarium or a portable planetarium is ideal) and be transformed into the right atmosphere. There is a large projector screen, a sound system and controlled lighting. Along with music playing, specific imagery is projected onto the screen/planetarium as students take their seats. This sensory experience brings the mind (the students) to the same emotional place regardless of the day they have had or mood they are in. Once students are seated a video and/or photographic essay begins. The images and music engage both sides of the brain in order to teach empathy. Empathy is a very important part in developing leadership skills and helping students create a successful road map for their life. While immersed in these sensory experiences, the students are led through several workbooks: Journey To Connect, Dream Machine and A Shared Destiny. These workbooks become their road maps to success. The powerful part of this program is that it is the student that writes his/her own road map for success. It becomes a truth that they believe in because the map is created by the student in their own words from their own minds. The workbooks are merely guides that ask powerful questions, questions that students are rarely ever asked or inspired to think about on their own. The students can take the material home with them to contemplate the principles and their own writings further.

I have not yet heard of any one else trying this solution to learning. However, the best book I have read on the subject of engaging all the senses is "The Experience Economy - Work is Theatre and Every Business A Stage" by Joseph Pine and James Gilmore. These two authors confirmed for me that my idea of sensory immersion as a teaching method is valid and exciting. Another validation came conducting this process with 20 students and again with individual adults and children privately, it has proven to be effective.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Example 1.
20 students went through the first 8 week course and then begged me to create an additional 8 week program. As a group they went the community bank and opened a savings account. They then conducted bake sales in their high school to raise money for an additional 8 weeks.

Example 2. A mother and her 12 year old son came to me from Department of Social Services. The mother and son relationship was strained, the son was starting to get into trouble at school. After going through the Journey to Connect Program they were able to identify where their communication was going wrong - and why they weren't "hearing" each other.

Example 3. Hired by a corporation to help renew employee empathy and team work after having a period uncertainty with new management. Renewed enthusiasm and relationships.

Example 4: A child with autism sat for 8 minutes without moving engaged by the video essay, able to convey its meaning after watching it. Mother was in awe and joy.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

My goal is to reach as many students as possible and help dispel the fears and insecurities when it comes to thinking about what their futures may hold for them. To help them learn that it is not just about asking yourself "what" you want to become but that more "why" do you want to become. To teach students that the answers to their life's questions are already inside of them - you must only ask powerful questions. I wish to then to duplicate the process and the model and make it available to all students and community based organizations nation wide.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

The financial piece has been the most significant challenge. Obtaining enough awareness for the program is also a challenge that will require funding while creating marketing materials only adds to the financial challenge. I am looking to establish a formal non-profit company and to then apply for grants and funding from banks utilizing the community reinvestment act. I would also like to approach private foundations.

In 1977 I was 14 years old-my mother took me to see Man of La Mancha with Richard Kiley. The experience mesmerized me. Yet, while in high school I wasn't able to retain information. I didn't test well and I couldn't retain information from my class lessons. I became one of those kids who fall between the cracks. All my life and to this day I can recall the smell of the theatre, the feel of the fabric on the seats, I can see clearly the scenes, the cast, the costumes - and I wondered, why can I recall all these details years later yet I could not recall a single piece of information from a week of lessons in order to test well. I realized it was due to all my senses being engaged while watching Man of La Mancha. I then sat down and created my first experimental empathy multi sensory teaching tool -it was for a history class on the Native American Indians. The multi-media piece moved me to the point of tears-I had profound empathy and connection far above what I experienced in school.

For the six month milestone I would like inspired people with credentials, experience and resources that would also challenge me - I believe this is a critical component. I designed Journey To Connect to be a teachable and repeatable process but I cannot do this alone nor do I wish to. A one day seminar focused on training life skills teachers, counselors, etc., and they would be able to deliver Journey To Connect as part of their curriculum.

For the twelve month milestones I would also need a network of J to C instructors in each school to provide the course on a consistent basis.

I mentioned that a planetarium is the ideal environment to deliver J To C. There are portable planetariums available by STARLAB Planetarium that cost $15,000. It would address one of my milestones to have one of these funded or donated.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

I am trying to encourage students to pursue higher education by giving them the opportunity to participate in an internship program in a business setting and understand how they can utilize the knowledge they learn in school in real life. School data (behaviors, motivators and student feedback surveys) have shown that students who have internships are more motivated to excel in school and earn high grades as a result. By achieving academic success in high school, they are motivated to attend college or other forms of higher education.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Using social entrepreneurship, I want to create an internship program that benefits both the participating students and businesses. Students from a participating high school are given the opportunity to participate in an internship during the summer and they are paired with a local business. Through their internship experience, students learn how to utilize their skills and relate their schoolwork to the real-world work environment. Due to this heightened awareness through real world experience, they understand the importance of good education and are more inclined to study hard and pursue higher education for a bright future.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

The model is based on collaboration between private and public organizations. This solution benefits not only the participating student but also the participating local businesses.

Through internships, students gain real world experience by the practically using Microsoft Power Point, Word, and Excel skills and analytical skills to analyze the information of participating local business “employee engagement” surveys. The students will also practice written and oral communications skills and learn to create business presentations and present them effectively in a real world setting. This allows the student to relate their classroom learning to their real world applications. Lastly, these students will walk away with the 12 key competencies for success in business and life. These competencies include: continuous learning, persistence, personal effectiveness, project focus, empathetic skills, decision making, flexibility, planning and organizing, initiative, personal accountability, problem solving, and self management.

The participating business benefits by contributing to the development of future employees/leaders for our community. They also receive valuable feedback (empathy) information to help the business improve and grow based on employee feedback from the employee engagement survey. This is a creative way of understanding group empathy.

O Mercado: Quem são os seus pares e concorrentes? Identificar os outros que também estão trabalhando para solucionar as mesmas necessidades que você e o que você faz de diferente em relação a eles.

This program is unique and thus, there are really no other competitors. There are however, programs that are available to promote higher education, which will compliment this program and make it successful. Generally businesses try to shy away from hiring high school student interns other than big departmental/food stores as they feel they do not get a lot of value for the wages they pay. This program is unique in that we provide participating local businesses with a cost-effective “employee engagement” survey and provide the feedback analysis. Consulting firms at a huge cost typically administer these kinds of surveys that several businesses cannot afford. Local businesses will be motivated to participate in this program as it is a cost effective solution for gathering employee empathy

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

This project is still in its initial stages of development and planning. The first step I have taken is getting the approval from a participating school. On March 8, 2012, I received approval from Hartford Public High School, Academy of Engineering and Green Technology. The next step is to find a sponsoring company that will help with the “employee engagement” survey materials, administration analysis. VRT Management Group, LLC has confirmed to donate their employee engagement survey materials, train the students with administration, data collection, and supervise the data analysis and presentation. The required marketing material has been designed and will be communicated to local businesses in the next few weeks. The concrete impact will be measured at the end of summer 2012.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

The projected impact will increase as the program continues over three years. The first year, I plan to conduct a program with 10 internships from one participating school, contact 10 participating companies, and have one sponsoring company. For the second year, I plan to increase the number of participating schools to two schools with 10 internships from each school and contact 20 participating companies, and two sponsoring companies. By the third year I project to have three or four participating schools with 30-40 internships with 30-40 participating companies and 3-4 sponsoring companies.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

One barrier that may hinder the success of this project is getting local businesses on board and willing to participate in the program. In order to overcome this barrier, I will leverage the school advisory board members, Hartford Mayor and other officials who all are working hard to promote higher education for all students. I will try to collaborate with other non-profit organizations for their marketing support. One of the marketing strategies is to create a one-page marketing brochure to distribute to local businesses around Hartford to participate in the program associated with Hartford Public High School AoEGT.

História: Queremos saber mais sobre o momento de descoberta desta solução. Conte-nos a história sobre onde e quando o(s) fundador(res) vislumbrou(aram) o potencial desta solução para mudar o mundo. [125 palavras]

This innovative idea came to me when my father challenged me to think out-side-box when I was discussing a plan for my summer learning. He always encourages me to think beyond the traditional ways to make an impact, learn, and grow in the process. I began thinking of how to help others get internships instead of me searching for my summer internship. Then the “Aha” moment came when I was thinking about how I enjoyed mentoring and coaching Hartford Public High School students and wanted to do something with these students again.

In high school, I spent a lot of time tutoring and mentoring students from Hartford Public High School. This was an urban school with over 90% minority students and very limited opportunities to be exposed to role models and real businesses. I always wanted to help them receive similar benefits that I received going to a good suburban public school because I was exposed to so many learning opportunities beyond school.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

How can you get a child who is locked in a world of pain and loneliness to trust another? How do you get children to believe in themselves that they can be a part of the solution towards building a community based on love and respect? How do you get a child who has doubts because their disability prevents them from running free from their insecurities? With the increase in incidents of bias, bullying and intimidation in our schools it is imperative to create programs that put the change in creating more caring communities into the hands and minds of our students. In essence to allow them to "own" their destinies and bind them to one another. Together they work to become the solution rather than the problem. They learn from each other and build a classroom community together.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

"New Strides in Leadership" is a program that goes beyond the normal parameters of class inclusiveness by fostering an atmosphere of acceptance and commonalities amongst mainstream and special needs students. This program is developed specifically to instill confidence and the courage for students to find their voice and to play an active role as leaders. Through the use of socialization and leadership skills, students will learn team-building skills, role-playing and hands on activities to address and resolve conflict situations that may arise in their lives or communities. It is expected that all students completing the program will leave more compassionate and appreciative of the differences of others rather than fearing them and will use their leadership skills to educate others to take a stand against the bias and bullying in schools and in their communities.

We begin the year by bringing the two divergent groups, one special needs and the other basic mainstream who have never met before to discuss as a class the significance of "What is in a name." These two classes come together with already built in institutionalized bias and fears regarding each other. The key is to create that bridge to bring them together. This is achieved by conducting an exercise where students address the significance of their names (identity) and they can validate each other simply by their humanity. This can be achieved by a simple hello spoken together thirty voices coming together as one. Names are spoken in a joyful and kind manner creating smiles and instantaneous connections between students. Students partner up with specific questions designed to discover one another's similarities as well as differences. They introduce their partners to the peer group at large and a community of trust begins to develop as we each discover our commonalities and purpose that together we can make a difference. This is folled by establishing the dynamics of the group and developing a mission statement as to who we are and the purpose of this class. The focus is to "Stand Up for Those Who Stand Alone" and as a leadership class to recognize students who may be feeling "disconnected" from the larger community and recognize their humanity and make them feel valued. Students are taught leadership skills and non confrontational language as well as recognizing choices in dealing with situations that may cause a conflict.

What is unique about our program is there are so few if any other organizations that combine curriculum to bridge Mainstream and Special Needs students in an inclusive Conflict Resolution/Leadership component. The students involved in this program are committed to its success because they play such a large role in shaping it. They are assigned to teams and are assigned projects they must complete and share with the class. They in turn become peer educators who own their material and have a stake in its success.
As effective educators in their classroom and communities students also see value in bringing positive change. They learn from one another and applaud their success as well as their peers.This is where "ownership" of the curriculmn and earnd pride in who they are take shape.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Obstacles in some educational systems separate students based academic, physical and emotional challenges. One student who entered this class as a selective mute to the point that she had to be spoon-fed is one of our barometer’s used to measure success. This student began the year in a catatonic state resulting from a previous operation to remove a tumor behind her eye. She was assigned students from the mainstream class who surrounded her with encouragement and praise. They worked diligently with her never giving up hope that she can contribute even in small doses.
It began by getting her to stand with the group, as students would hold each arm and keep her safe. This progressed to a smile and a sense that a breakthrough was imminent. It occurred during a leadership exercise called Peace- War- Peace where I ripped a poem and illustration representing peace. This student vocalized her displeasure bringing the class to a joyful and surprising conclusion.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

By creating a peer-to-peer partnership between mainstream and special needs students we are breaking down barriers within the larger student population. Students will work in teams bringing the message of inclusiveness into the classrooms discussing topics such as bullying solutions, building safer communities based on respect and understanding. It is our intent to create a school community where one life impacts many. As peer educators our diverse students will have the opportunity to move a school culture toward a greater appreciation of one another's differences and commonalities. Our young peer educators will be recognized for their leadership skills as they come to a realization that their words and actions can make a positive difference within their respective communities.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

As any program there will always be kinks that need to be worked out and fine-tuned. This program is no different. Skill building materials that need to be disseminated in quantity to students and educators as well as parents elevate costs and budgetary concerns. Computer technology and software always play a large role in moving the message forward through video, editing and presentation. Being this is a new and innovative program, there is no budget line allotted to support it within the New York City Tri-State area.
By creating partnerships with potential corporate donors contributions can be used toward defraying costs to initiate and sustain programs. Community outreach to local PTO'S and civic associations also create a community partnerships leading toward additional support.

The student's met for the first time on September 21st 2012. They were a mystery to each other. Each student {special needs or mainstream} carried a preconceived idea of the other. Each one had a story to share; each student also carried within them a desire to achieve something larger than them but needed a safe and trusting environment to create this opportunity. This is where they found each other. Elizabeth was a self contained mute locked in a catatonic state resulting from an past operation. Gloria was a typical teenager who rarely came into contact with special needs students with severe disabilities. Through this class they found each other. Gloria would mentor Elizabeth with a team of students both special needs and mainstream to the point where she was able to "breakthrough" the silence and speak at the United Nations. Elizabeth's mother rejoiced with tears in her eyes that her daughter was coming back to her. Elizabeth is now a vital and vibrant voice within our program.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Today’s high school youth need to develop empathy and related skills in order to become the next generation of community and global citizens. At the same time, children and adults in developing countries need opportunities to obtain a basic education. buildOn connects US urban high school students to school construction projects in the developing world. Traveling to construct a school with buildOn is an experience that pushes students to their limits. But it’s not the muscle-aching labour, or the bucket showers, or the latrines that students remember most: It’s the people. And the knowledge that they have not only laid the foundation for a school, but for a better life for hundreds of community members.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

buildOn fosters empathy among urban high school students by providing them with opportunities for service and education on a local and global level. Inner-city buildOn students develop empathy by identifying, learning about and combating the most persistent problems within their own struggling communities and by helping to construct primary schools in developing countries. Many buildOn students have not been outside their own neighbourhoods before traveling to the developing world, enabling impoverished people to obtain a basic education. While abroad, buildOn teens draw parallels between their own struggles and the hardships faced by people in developing countries, returning to their own communities with a deeper appreciation for their own academic and economic opportunities, the importance of civic engagement, and a deeper compassion for others.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Each year, 250+ buildOn high school students from Philadelphia, Bridgeport, CT, the Bronx, Chicago, Detroit and San Francisco/Oakland who hail from the most challenged communities, are given a unique and wonderful opportunity to enable the impoverished people of Malawi, Mali, Nepal, Haiti and Nicaragua to obtain a basic education.

During the trip, they live with a host family and experience the simplicity and roughness of life in a developing nation without resources like running water or electricity. They mix concrete, make bricks and form walls by hand alongside villagers, immersing themselves in the difficult labour of construction. Over a two-week period, the opportunities for developing empathy are enormous. Students not only learn the value of sweat equity, but form powerful personal relationships that enable them to draw parallels between their host families’ struggles and their own.

Each team consists of 18 high school students, 2 teachers and buildOn staff. Upon their return, buildOn members share their experience with fellow students and community members. Their post-travel essays, letters, poems and social media posts illustrate beautifully how being welcomed into a community thousands of miles from the inner-city United States and into the home of a village family changes the way they see themselves and the world.

Quais seriam os desafios impostos por esses concorrentes que impactariam no seu sucesso ou crescimento?

There are organizations that offer opportunities for students to perform service abroad (Cross Cultural Solutions, Global Routes, Amigos, to name a few). What sets buildOn apart is our overarching youth development approach - our unique program model that connects local community service and education with international school building. And, while other organizations send wealthy students whose parents can pay hefty sums, buildOn covers all travel expenses for our members – low-income, minority students who hail from inner-city high schools. buildOn students are selected for their commitment to service. buildOn students want to give back because through buildOn, they understand that there are many places where people are struggling. Their passion is to change that, one step at a time.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Since 1991, buildOn students have contributed 900,000 hours of volunteer service – helping seniors, homeless and children in their communities. Nearly 1,500 US urban high school students have helped to construct 440 buildOn schools in the developing world. Today, buildOn students are helping buildOn to break ground a new school every 5 days.

In 2010, Brandeis University identified “Empathy & Compassion” as one of ten outcomes of buildOn’s youth development programming. Among increased leadership skills and self-confidence, 96% of buildOn students reported an increased willingness and desire to understand and value others’ experiences. Student and alumni essays and quotes demonstrate that buildOn has had a profound impact on participants’ lives – in the choices they make, and in their feelings of responsibility and commitment to the local and global communities they serve.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

buildOn’s highest priority is to remain a best-in-class organization, offering engaging programming that dramatically improves the lives of high school youth. By 2014, 6,000 students across the US will be empowered weekly through buildOn. At that time, 2,200 students will have helped buildOn to construct 741 schools in the developing world.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

buildOn’s goal to broaden our programs and deepen our impact will succeed by raising awareness among potential program members, partners, donors and other stakeholders. We are continuously working to strengthen the buildOn brand and refine our organizational message. Further, the economic downturn presents a need to serve a growing number of teenagers made vulnerable by family job losses and school and social service agency budget cuts. We are continuously working to increase financial resources to support this growing need.

Jim Ziolkowski was 23 years old when he derailed a promising career in corporate finance to mobilize an extraordinary crusade. While trekking through the mountains of Nepal, Jim happened on a village celebrating the opening of its first school and the outpouring of pride he witnessed from the community changed the course of his life. He was inspired to share this spirit of resilience in the face of extreme poverty with American youth who faced challenges in their own communities. Within 18 months, Jim followed his dream of partnering youth from inner-city communities with inhabitants in distant villages to change the world. Today, while students in Detroit feed homeless veterans, kids from the South Bronx are building schools in West Africa. All are changing lives.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Despite over 67% of Rwanda’s population being under the age of 35, their participation in policy conception, formulation, and implementation remains minimal. Many youth have become hopeless due to absence of enabling policy decisions to address their core problems such as unemployment, limited access to higher education and vocational training, and the HIV/AIDS pandemic. Meanwhile, youth have traditionally remained very submissive and fearful of engaging authority, due to 30 years of dictatorship and totalitarianism, including a government sponsored genocide in 1994, along with having limited government education systems to teach them how to properly conduct policy change, thus creating a culture with almost no youth voice in government.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

This project will focus on scaling up the culture of debate in secondary schools initiated by AJPRODHO since 2007/2008, especially to rural schools. This will specifically be accomplished by focusing more on policy debate, so that these students are nurtured into active citizens of tomorrow. Policy debate shall greatly boost the interest amongst students to learn more on different policies, and even identify existing gaps in terms of policy to trigger debate for their enactment. Students shall be equipped with the relevant tools and skills to research, intelligently discuss, and critically analyze different policies as well as the ability to present ideas in a clear, organized and professional manner, thus assisting them in future political advocacy.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Our project model shall be implemented in 10 pilot Secondary Schools, 5 from Kigali City and 5 from the more rural Eastern Province. From here we will select 2 students and one teacher from each school, who we will teach debate methodology and advocacy during a three-day training seminar. We will use this foundation in order to start debate clubs in each school, with each in charge of organizing monthly debates on policy issues, as well as one inter-secondary school debate tournament. Overall, this should result in students’ views on different policy issues being raised and forwarded to decision makers through policy briefs generated through debates and endorsed to different stakeholders, along with initiating discussions with relevant institutions to promote policy debate in secondary schools. Subsequently, this debate program should help improve students’ political will and efficacy, as they learn about the government system, and how to negotiate it to a greater extent, within a safe, educational environment.

We do not have competitors as such, but rather partners on similar issues. An example of this would be Never Again Rwanda, as a local CSO that also organizes debates in secondary schools. In order to avoid duplication of schools, we have a joint committee to select which schools each organization should work with, along with discussing which policies have worked and which have failed with each school. There has been no challenge with this yet.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Since we started this project in 2007, we have seen a significant increase in both political awareness and efficacy among youth participants. Students have begun to take a more active role in local governance and politics as they have learned how to peacefully and effectively advocate for themselves, thus taking away some of their previous fears of engaging with authority. Along with this, students have learned how to provide clear and easily accessible information to their fellow youth, as they write articles for AJPRODHO’s bi-monthly magazine concerning those political issues that most interest and affect them. This project has also allowed us a greater insight into the needs of youth in Rwanda, thus giving us direction in which to focus our activities.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

Over the next one to three years, we expect to see a continued growth in student awareness and advocacy, as each school continues with their debate programs, while we focus on expanding this program to even more schools, thus reaching increasingly more youth. Similarly, the expertise among educators should grow during this time period, as they gain experience in teaching students debate. Along with this, we expect an increase in the number of youth-focused magazines available in Rwanda, as these students build their journalizing skills and realize the importance of creating awareness among their fellow citizens.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

Keeping the schools motivated to continue with their debate programs after the initial six-month period provides our biggest barrier to the continued success of this project. However, this should be easily overcome as we keep in constant contact with the school, providing occasional funding support and lobbying for the continuation of this program. Along with this, the increased national presence these programs should create for these schools, as they win inter-school competitions and gain recognition, should help build a positive reputation around these schools and incentivize them to keep the debate programs in place.

Every day at AJPRODHO we deal with disenfranchised youth who feel as though they have absolutely no say in local politics and governance, especially due to the history of Rwanda. As such, we are constantly searching for new ways to help promote political efficacy and awareness among youth. Meanwhile, debates on policies have long been recognized as being an important tool for informing youth on policies, along with having them actively participate in the entire governance process. Due to this, it did not take much of a leap of mind to go from our more humanitarian rights focus, to attempting to empower youth to advocate for themselves with the formation of local secondary school debate programs.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Our schools and families are struggling. Too many students are disruptive, labeled, and kicked out for “bad behavior” because they “can’t learn” to behave. Schools readily reward and punish in a misguided attempt to shape student behavior, but rarely teach needed social – emotional skills with the time, care, and patience given to math or reading. The implication is that they know better; if one could only make students care, disruptive behavior would disappear. But significant skills and the ability to apply them are missing. Teaching skills and a systematic solution-focused approach to discipline is what will build strong future leaders.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Sound Discipline works with school adults (staff and parents) to create a transformative cultural shift in adult–student and student-student relationships. By experientially practicing skills that enhance relationships (self regulation, empathy, mutual respect and problem solving) school staff, students and families build a powerful learning community that cultivates mutual respect, active participation, social-emotional development and ultimately academic excellence.
Students practice their new skills by solving their own problems using structured class meetings. School administrations review site-based data to identify emerging patterns of behavior problems, develop timely and enduring responses, and develop a sustainable system for discipline in the school. The program also includes parent education to build parenting skills and reinforce student growth at home as well as in the classroom.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Two students come in from recess visibly upset. There was shoving going on in line. This classroom is in a Sound Discipline school. Instead of going to the teacher for help, Mahad and Alex know what to do and find the student with the “problem-solving helper” job. The three of them sit in the problem-solving corner. The helper makes sure each student is heard, then asks which tool from the “Wheel of Choice” they’d like to use. They choose “Bugs & Wishes.” Alex says, “Mahad, it *bugs* me when you cut in line, and I *wish* you wouldn’t do it.” Mahad says he won’t do it again. Alex isn’t convinced. The helper suggests putting it on the class meeting agenda so the class can help them brainstorm more solutions to choose from. Alex agrees. Mahad and the helper return to their seats to work. Alex, still upset, decides to first spend a few moments in the cool-down spot specially designed by the class at the beginning of the year to help students get re-centered when they’re struggling. Within a few minutes Alex is also back at his seat working and the teacher, uninterrupted, continues helping another student with his writing.

Roots of Empathy, Responsive Classroom and Open Circle all focus solely on teaching social emotional skills. Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) uses a systems approach to discipline, without directly teaching social skills. Sound Discipline does both: combines an experiential curriculum to teach social- emotional skills and supports schools in developing a data-driven, Solution-Focused discipline program. As a result: 1) Students SEE adults modeling the social-emotional skills they are learning, 2) data is regularly reviewed and used for continuous improvement 3) the parenting community is involved. Other programs have a historical and funding advantage that gives them greater visibility.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Thousands of students are learning skills to navigate in the world because we’ve trained 20 schools (9 still active), several thousand educators and hundreds of parenting educators.

In 2011 impacted students by training:
-500 educators to use the classroom curriculum
-another 385 educators and youth-workers to enhance skills working with students exposed to trauma
-45 new parenting educators, including many non-native English speakers.

Results from schools with good program implementation include:
-40% reduction in office referrals over 3 years.
-Up to 60+% reduction numbers of students referred to the office > 6x/year
-Increased school attendance.
-Significant decrease in violence on the playground.
-Improved adult relationships with students with challenging behaviors.
-Students gaining skills, voice and empowerment.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

Sound Discipline will spend the next three years:
-improving our model and continuing to demonstrate using school based data the impact of the whole school solution-focused approach so that:
-there is a significant cultural shift in our larger community in how students with challenging behaviors are disciplined so that
-more schools will adopt programs that TEACH social skills to students, teachers and families, and
-adopt data driven models for respectful school wide solution focused approaches for the sake of increased equity and academic excellence for all students.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

1) Mentorship. Like students, the teachers/staff need more mentoring and coaching to be successful with this project; they too lack skills and the support to practice them regularly.
-With the support of the schools we will pilot a program to add a coaching/resource model ½ day per week at participating schools.
2) Funding. Significant cutbacks in school funding threaten our current economic model.
-We are currently actively fundraising and exploring grant funding
3) Better data.
-A controlled study of our work is yet to be completed. We continue to work actively toward this goal.

As a family physician, Jody McVittie recognized that the Positive Discipline parenting skills she learned for her own family dramatically impacted families in her practice. Families that learned to listen to each other and to solve problems became ill less often: they had less dis-ease. She then collaborated with Terry Chadsey, an experienced master teacher, to bring the practices into schools. Their dream was to use the tools to teach students social skills, and to reduce the significant disparities in discipline that result in male students and students of color being disciplined more frequently and more harshly. It was their second big aha, years later, recognizing the importance of focusing on the patterns of challenging behaviors using school data that has driven the successful implementation in whole schools.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Schools reflect the disparities and challenges facing their larger communities. Lack of opportunity, low achievement and levels of self-esteem, family challenges and a diminished sense of social efficacy undermine well-being and cooperation. With the income gap growing, the focus on testing and an epidemic of bullying, schools and communities are losing a sense of shared responsibility for one another and the connections that make communities whole and people feel valued. StoryMatters targets these issues through oral history and narrative. StoryMatters builds an affirming sense of self, strengthens connections with others and engages with the larger community by activating empathy.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

StoryMatters is a school/classroom based program using oral history and narrative to build empathy, leadership and opportunity. It blends core curricular requirements with a deepening awareness of self, other and community. StoryMatters creates a learning and experiential scaffold on which students deepen self-awareness, strengthen connections with others and develops social efficacy through community engagement and service learning.
StoryMatters is a project of Threshold Collaborative. The project was developed for elementary age children and will be piloted in a public middle school and a charter High school in Reading PA. We are creating a curriculum and training program to scale the program. StoryMatters will be packaged in a backpack with all the “ingredients” needed to run it: digital recorders; curriculum linking StoryMatters to grade specific requirements; examples from successful StoryMatters programs; links to on-line resources and Threshold’s on-line learning community.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Schools are desperate for concrete strategies that help decrease negative behavior (bullying, absenteeism)and support pro-social opportunities for success. StoryMatters uses the power of story to build self-awareness, connections to others, the community and to ignite empathic action!
The program links to learning requirements that are grade specific and are integrated as part of the classroom experience. StoryMatters translates the hope schools have to deepen empathy into practice by engaging young people in a meaningful process that teaches empathy.
1. Deepen Self Awareness and Empathy: Students reflect on who they are, what they value and what impact they want to have in their community.
a.Grade specific reading
b.Framework: self-guided questions
c.Use of digital recorder and editing program
d.Recording answers to: "Who am I, What do I Value, What Impact do I want to Have?"

2.Build Empathic Connections: Students reflect on “others”, how are we different, what values are shared how can shared values be deepened? Students interview other students or community members.
a. Grade specific reading
b. Interview Questions developed
c. Students paired to interview others
d. Students report to class on shared values and community impact ideas

3. Strengthen Community Engagement: Students design

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

StoryMatters has been used in elementary schools with children ages 5-12. Teachers, students and principals love the program and want to see it shared widely with others. StoryMatters has helped students understand themselves as valued agents of positive change in their own lives, with others and in their community. StoryMatters helps to break down the walls between different groups of children and between the school and the larger community. It is an ideal program to help schools address the challenges they face in building empathic connections amongst students and deepening understanding between the school and the larger community.
Extensive qualitative material exists to demonstrate impact including interviews with principals, teachers, community members and students. Teachers report an elevated self efficacy and pride in community involvement.
Integrating StoryMatters into the Common Core and developing the Backpack story kit will enable Threshold to scale this program widely

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

In the next 2 years we will partner with:

· A charter high school: I-LEAD Charter High School, Reading PA
· A public middle school, Mount Anthony Union Middle School, VT
· Improve the pilot and fine tune grade specific strategies
· Document and assess the impact of StoryMatters
In year 3 we will:
· Tie StoryMatters learning goals and framework to the National Core Curriculum Standards for broad scaling
· Develop StoryMatters backpack, tool kit, curriculum and other resource materials
· Market grade specific StoryMatters curriculum to K-12 public, private and charter schools in the USA
· Develop in person and on-line training and coaching program

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

Financial resources are needed to:

Since the early 1990’s Alisa Del Tufo has been using narrative to build opportunities for personal and community transformation. These powerful strategies have helped victims of violence heal, perpetrators of violence come to terms with their abuse, and communities address racism, work with youth and create improved health. Empathy and action have been the core values and methods of her work. Taking these strategies into schools to address the challenges faced by young people is another step on this path . A school based strategy will allow the values of empathy and action to be widely scaled and taught as a set of skills that everyone needs to succeed.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

PROOF seeks to end genocidal and mass violence. PROOF uses photography and educational workshops as a means to inform and educate global audiences about the legacy of mass atrocities. Powered by a strong belief that photographic evidence and stories of upstanders is a unique and potent tool in the fight for human rights, our goal is to empower future generations to work for social change.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

PROOF's solution starts with the idea that individuals and communities may not know how to access the peacemaker within themselves and within their communities. We believe that pro-social behaviors and attitudes, such as empathy can be taught. PROOF systematically collects rescue stories of individuals whose lives have been torn apart by conflict, genocide, and environmental disasters. We then bring these stories to a wider audience through photographic exhibitions, testimonials, documentary films, books, and public education events.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Below is an outline of the work PROOF did in Bosnia with young people. This project was also replicated in Cambodia.

Define: PROOF organized two half-day seminars in Bosnia with non-governmental organizations (NGOs), local academics, and historians to understand what peacebuilder, upstander means in the local context.
Identify: PROOF worked with its local partners and their networks, including mass media (e.g. radio shows) to identify and collect testimonies.
Collect: PROOF worked with its local partners and trained three (3) individuals in Bosnia to conduct face-to-face interviews; handle the technologies (sound and camera) as well as provide translation into English, if necessary.
Create and Disseminate: PROOF identified the appropriate medium depending on the context to convey the rescuer stories most effectively.
Teach: PROOF and worked with local partners to develop training and teaching curriculum specific to each intended audience and cultural context.
Assess: PROOF and its local partners developed a survey for distribution to visitors of the exhibit and/or theatrical performances to gauge their base line understanding of the issue being examined.

As a small organization, with limited resources, PROOF seeks partnerships with peer organizations throughout the globe. In the U.S., PROOF could be compared with Witness and like organizations that use photography to move individuals to action.

PROOF differs from these types of organizations as we seek to locate the good and advocate for its furtherance. We always seek to contextualize our projects in local context and enhance photography with historical and personal narratives.

Return to Cambodia and Bosnia to run more workshops and host more lectures on PROOF's approach and its impact. PROOF will also work in Nepal and Colombia, co-hosting workshops for high school students with locale partners, collecting rescuer testimonies and organizing public exhibitions of rescuer stories and photos.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

As PROOF strives to work closely with local partners, our primary challenges have been related to identifying great local partners and supporting their efforts. To overcome these challenges, we will:

I. Spend more time with each NGO to ensure that a culturally specific understanding of upstander behavior is clear and actionable.
II. Deliberate more to identify the best possible local partner. In addition, when encountering any challenges with the partner, we will seek to resolve these proactively.
III. Both no. 1 and no. 2 will be addressed by scheduling more frequent site visits.

I have always been an adventurer and traveler. When I was in Rwanda, I met Regan, a Hutu. Regan walked me through the village, showing me the path he takes each day to tend the farm, to visit family and friends in neighboring huts or to drink a beer with a buddy at a local tavern. While sharing with me his life today, he also retraced his steps and recounted the days leading up to the Genocide and what motivated him not to fight, but to help.

His bravery amazes me to this day. As I reflect upon Regan and others like him, I am struck by the thought that as much as we thank and elevate these individuals’ actions, I do believe that within each of us, sits a rescuer.

PROOF relies heavily on student interns to help with research, outreach and fundraising. To date, there is only one paid staff member; an administrative assistant. PROOF's board is very involved in operations through fundraising and technical assistance. PROOF needs more paid staff. The Executive Director has yet to take any salary, routing all donations into program activities. With paid staff (e.g. fundraiser, workshop coordinator), PROOF could manage current goals, sustain and grow its operations and reach more individuals.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Young people disconnected from the needs of the world and their own needs. Young people with no voice to express their real thoughts and emotions, and without incentives from school education to become more involved in external issues. An old fashion system where teachers stand in front of the class and pass their knowledge, and there is no much space for discussions and collective learning. Need of real conversations, deep learning about others, and ourselves, about our thoughts and emotions and how do they affect our actions. Need to understand our mind, body and spirit are connected. Need to look beyond the school walls and start caring about the world issues and how our actions impact on them.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Our Social Business Entrepreneurship Program is based on collective learning methodologies, such as the circle or PeerSpirit model, and Appreciative Inquiry. Such models allow participants to learn about each other individually and about the group, learn about the beauty that is in everything surrounding them and discover opportunities where others only see disgrace and, more important, discover they are capable of promoting changes. They learn how to contribute with their own thinking, focus on what really matters, speak with their mind and their heart, listen to understand, link and collect Ideas, and search for the best in people, and the relevant world around them. At the end they understand organizations are made of people and the only sustainable business are based on social business models, where you connect minds and hearts with the needs of the world.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

The first program we facilitated on this model was destined to different profiles, such as social entrepreneurs, students, teachers, and institutions' personnel. It was incredible to promote deep conversations and group work into such a diverse population. We took this group to develop an Appreciative Inquiry work at a big slum in Belo Horizonte and it was amazing. People got really emotional visiting slum sheds and been received with all the openness and caring from dwellers. They were able to talk from equal to equal, listen with their heart and minds and go into really deep conversations, about their dreams and hopes. As a final task, groups were able to develop local business ideas to promote the slum development, such as a social English course and a local newspaper. Everybody was very happy and satisfied with the result. In only two weekends we were able to create a very strong sense of collaboration and empathy among participants, what gave the group the trust to work together, expose their inner thoughts and fears, get closer to strange people during field work at the slum, and develop really great and innovative solutions for their needs.

There are other local programs mainly from NGO's to develop young people interaction and more diverse school learning methods, but none of them is using the same collective methodologies as we do. By the other side, there are also some colleagues from the Art of Hosting community, from which we are partners and stewards, caring works based on the same methodologies, but with different purpose and in different fields. We joined the collective learning journey to focus on entrepreneurship of a new kind of business and conscious: the social business, where you connect your heart and mind with the possibility to make money and make a difference in the world.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

All participants from the first program were positively impacted on the course, and started applying group and relationship learnings in their lives. Some of them are already planning to start their own business, others are still developing their ideas, others are working on implementing some positive change within their institutions.
Participants from the slum where the program was developed were also very pleased with the business ideas generated. There are still some ideas going on, some projects that started are suspended or in stand-by because there was no leader to continue the work. Our compromise is to develop more social entrepreneurs programs there, including local inhabitants on the program, so they can continue the local work after the program ends.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

With the resources to replicate the program in different schools and surroundings, we could have 10 programs a year, what could mean more than 750 participants in 3 years, plus all suburb participants during each edition that are involved and impacted by the program conduction and results.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

There is a challenge to finance the program. Our initial goal was to take the program to public institutions, universities, and schools, but there is a gap in finding their ways to finance that. We also wanted to help NGO’s members to learn how to work more collectively and learn new ways of developing their activities, on a more business oriented way. But they also have difficulty in see their need and find the ways to finance the program. And since we are not a philanthropic organization, we need to charge for our work, and sometimes it is not possible to accomplish it. We also have a challenge to monitor the result and continuity of the projects and local business ideas. If no one from the program is willing to assume the initiative it rarely will succeed on the suburb.

During my first being present on a circle from Art of Hosting community I felt deep in my heart this was the answer I was looking for, this was the right way to work as a team, the only way we could have all the world diversity together, open to have deep conversations and listen carefully to each other. So I started to apply collective methodologies like the circle in my life and work. Then, looking for some answers in ways of doing business, social business made a lot of sense to me, as an answer to our capitalism model. So it seemed natural to join both proposals and create a program to develop this new consciousness for life and business.

This project collects the stories (film and photography) of individuals who in the midst of violent conflict chose to help the "other". The stories of ordinary people, crossing ethnic and cultural lines, becoming an "upstander" and not a bystander to violence are then integrated into programs (workshops) geared to help young people recognize how they too can become upstanders in every day life.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Since the 1960’s, nearly every indicator of social stability and moral health shifted dramatically in a negative direction. Violent crimes increased more than 500 percent, 160,000 children miss school every day due to bullying; fear of attack or intimidation by other students , over 75 percent of college students admit to some cheating , and more than a third of these students said they would steal from an employer. Two by Two provides unique curriculum to foster ideas of empathy in students towards people, animals, and the environment.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Character Education initiatives need to include effective programming and practices. Two by Two provides students, teachers, administrators, and parents with tools which contain specific curriculum elements that promote the following empathetic behaviors:

Pedagogical Elements
1. Academic Curriculum Integration
2. Direct and Interactive Teaching Strategies
3. Classroom/Behavior Management Strategies
4. School-Wide Activities
5. Modeling/Mentoring
6. Family/Community Participation
To instill life-long values, Two by Two created its curriculums to capture a child’s attention, imagination and heart in ways that other subjects may not – through companion animals and their habitats. The curriculums utilize the humane care of animals as a vehicle for teaching societal values such as kindness, responsibility, and respect. Research shows that teaching social emotional skills, such as empathy, results in better attendance, academic performance, and well- rounded citizens.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

wo by Two has created character education curricula based on 21st Century education standards-the skills students need to succeed in work, school and life - to shift the moral and ethical compass in a positive direction. Through these programs, children develop pro-social behaviors, helping them grow into empathetic, responsible, and productive citizens.
Two by Two programs have been in the Dubuque Community School District since 2006. During the 2010-11 school year, Two by Two taught 440, one hour classes to over 10,000 elementary students. To date, approximately 60,000 students have received Two by Two Character Education programming. The five week curriculum is taught by certified teachers with a hands-on approach. Our NEW Toolkits of Character allow teachers to continue the important job of teaching children how to be kind, respectful, and responsible citizens throughout the academic day, EVERY DAY!

Two by Two curriculums are unique. They challenge the students head, heart, and hands to become pro-social citizens. We encourage our community to "get in the buggy" because we know that, "All adults involved with children either help or thwart children’s growth and development, whether we like it, intend it or not.” - Aristotle. If we do not have the community support at varied levels we will not make the impact we need to develop students into empathetic learners.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Every school year,pre and posttests are analyzed by Dr. Jeanette Shutay. The data analysis results for 2010-­11
evaluation indicate that students learned a statistically significant amount of knowledge related to the Kindhearted
Kids and the Kindhearted Kids to the Rescue Character Education Curriculum. The knowledge gained about core values, such as kindness, respect, responsibility, empathy, cooperation, perseverance, and citizenship was consistent
across school types, income levels and geographies (e.g., urban, rural, etc.). Furthermore, the results indicate that the
students with the least amount of knowledge gained the most knowledge and therefore the initial knowledge gaps between students were narrowed as a result of this program. In summary, all groups of students gained a significant
amount of knowledge on average as a result of participating in the Two by Two Character Education Programs.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

Over the next three years, Two by Two will continue our character education curriculums within the city of Dubuque. The goal is to reach every student in both public and parochial sectors of education, thus creating positive and productive climates and cultures within our schools and communities. To do this, professional development must be provided to our teachers, families, and community members, as "It takes a community to raise a child." These outcomes will also be achieved by ongoing marketing awareness campaigns and sales from our curriculums to regional and national school districts. By reaching out, Two by Two will create a larger impact than just the city of Dubuque.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

Funding is always a barrier that will continue to hinder the project. Without proper funding we are unable to reach our maximum potential of students. We are currently developing a community awareness campaign that will create an awareness of need for our curriculums in our schools, our workforce, and our community. We strive every day to raise the necessary funds to allow us to bring our curriculum to the greatest amount of students and spread the word of our work - through partnerships with individual and corporate donors.

Kristin Woodward, the founder of Two by Two was an elementary teacher for over 20 years. With the pressure of No Child Left Behind, Kristin saw a change in our children - a lack of empathy and respect for people. Kristin had a second passion, the love of animals. She knew animals were the perfect teaching tool to help create a more empathetic world. The 1933 National PTA Congress put it simply..."Children trained to extend justice, kindness, and mercy to animals become more just, kind, and considerate in their relationships with each other. Character training along these lines will result in men and women of broader sympathies, more humane, more law-abiding - in every respect more valuable citizens." Thus Two by Two evolved!

Ideia (você está para lançar)

Há quanto tempo seu projeto está em atividade?

Ainda na fase de ideia, mas você deseja lançá-lo em breve

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

The Nepalese education system chiefly focussing on the examination and marks-oriented approach lacks global competence in various ways. It is largely guided by excessively theoretical and rote-learning educational system giving students little, if any, opportunity for their creative, intellectual and social growth much required to face the challenges of the real world. Especially the government-run schools are hard hit, as they lack competence with their private counterparts, in addition to the relatively less infrastructures. The real essence of education is then focussed on securing pass marks in the exam; let alone obtaining higher scores. This pretext then fails in building up the much required confidence, attitude and moral values required in their future career.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

We aim to introduce a special project entitled “Ma Saksham Chu'” meaning ‘I am Capable’(in Nepali language). This program shall be targeted for the students at the school level, especially in the government schools in all urban, sub-urban and rural areas of Nepal. The project is chiefly aimed at implanting in students the values of honesty, morality, discipline, confidence building and teamwork. The first phase solution is to let the students know about these requirements and to organize various workshops and talk sessions in various levels with the students in over 50 different public schools all over Nepal. All the discussions and outcomes shall be promoted via mass media. Similarly, these would also be recorded and distributed to other schools for better reach and results.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Realizing these needs for enhancing values among the large proportion of students that are thrown out into the job market increasingly every year, various non-governmental non-profit organizations have been involved in promoting such value-oriented workshops. Their prime focus, however, has been only those who have completed their academic education and that too only in the capital.

Some few organizations have been working for the upliftment of education sector in Nepal, from governmental to non-governmental ones. Most of them chiefly focus on providing extra tuition or preparatory classes, or in developing infrastructure and organizations as Room to Read provide library services only and others are focussed in skill development trainings. Very few of them conduct workshops directed at economics or policy making — limited only to high school graduates.
We are, however, focused on providing these values to students at the very school level so that they can be productive and better citizens and person in the future and help develop the nation.
No threat as such can be identified alongside these institutions. We aim at doing our part of the work we enjoy in.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

The project is still in the idea phase and its impact is yet to be felt.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

Over the next 1-3 years, I am Capable projects would be introduced in over fifty targetted schools throughout the nation. Some significant changes in the attitudes and teaching/learning approaches can be felt. These positive changes and the impacts will be documented via documentaries and other audio-visual tools and will be dessiminated throughout the nation through media.this will in turn motivate other students regarding the need of introducing empathy and pragmatism in education. Also the school where this project has been successfully launched will be prepared for organising a nation-wide I am Capable events and programs.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

The major barriers of the project might be the norms and the policies of Nepal's government schools which assert that only course education is sufficient for the students and are not very friendly towards new and innovative teaching methods and extra curricular activities. Other barriers may include the funding sources and human resource mobilization.

The AHA moment is when people start sensing the smell of this workshop. This workshop is designed to carry the factors of the self discipline, determination, physically and mentally, team building and changing the perception that they carry. It is about giving life to their dignity and making them independent in decision making and self confidence. This project “I am Capable” natively called “Ma(I) Sakcham (Capable) Chu(am)” is entitled to give the essence of self independency and team work parallely. So, when the things start changing and when people start realing the essence by watching TV, using Internet, this challenges the respective family members, parents ,guardians to learn about teaching and equally every other students who won't be participating can feel the same intuition inside their heart. Then the tendency will start changing carrying wind of change.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

I saw the need to help students in our high school develop and improve upon their empathy for others. I considered ways to impact the greatest number of students and decided to begin with the leaders of the various social groups in the school.The goal was to help them overcome the barriers between their social groups and really begin to see one another as people worthy of respect and consideration.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

I created an empathy training workshop entitled "It All Starts Here!" that brings together approximately 60 students and 12 teachers for a day together off campus. It consists of team building and leadership activities that allows people to play and laugh together, interacting with those they would not necessarily have before. Eventually, they begin a series of interactive sharing activities that allow them the opportunity to hear one another's stories, consider the dynamics of bullying in teens, and be honest with themselves and others about who they are and what obstacles they face in life. The results were incredibly powerful and the participants ended the day by creating a "Wish for Tomorrow" for our school(which were posted back on campus)as well as sharing affirming comments with one another. We ran this four times and impacted 1/4 of our school population who were then tasked with influencing others on a daily basis. It worked!

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

We have seen a huge (positive) change in our climate at school thanks to the new knowledge our students have. They treat others with more respect and the "silent observors" are beginning to speak up and address bullying when they see it. There is more respect evident (less swearing, name-calling, physical intimidation) than in previous years and there is a better "feel" to our building. Students have a common language to share and I have many testimonies written by them stating how the workshop day changed their perspective on their peers, our school, and their own lives. They do a better job of looking after one another now and involving staff in the process has led to increased understanding between staff and students. Phil Boyte says "It's hard to hate someone whose story you know", and we have seen evidence of this in the increased empathy our students are showing to one another's faces and on line. Our Leadership class is launching a responsible social networking awareness campaign to continue the good work that was begun and I see students continuing to cross social barriers during the regular school day.

Several schools have asked my co-facilitator to offer the workshop in their schools. I have become involved in this by launching one school and allowing another facilitator to observe me so that she could work with Peter for more days with one school. In an effort to maintain some quality control over the preparation and delivery of the program, I created an organizer's manual for schools to use if they choose to bring the workshop to their students. It is important that groups be carefully constructed to preserve student safety in the process and I felt a responsibility to ensure that organizers were aware of the important hours of preparation that happen before the workshop can be delivered.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

We have more students speaking out against bullying when they see it and students are less inclined to behave in negative ways toward one another. Many have said that participation in this workshop has made them stop and think about how they are conducting themselves both in and out of school. We have witnessed a few students take it upon themselves to apologize to peers they have hurt in the past. Our school is a gentler, more caring, place because of our concerted efforts and students tell me that they feel safer at school than they have in years past. Many said they didn't realize that others cared about them and some made friends with people from other social groups that they would never have had the opportunity to meet if it had not been for this workshop.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

We are hoping to continue utilizing this workshop (multi-grade) each year as needed to keep the importance of empathy front and centre. Building a community of care will provide us with a strong foundation for all the other great things we hope to accomplish as a school.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

The funding for an off-campus workshop may become a problem in time, but we will seek partnerships with community groups to help with that. Other schools who have offered the workshop (some have called it "The Power of Change")have done this with a lot of success.

Last year I had an "A-ha!" moment when I witnessed an exchange between a Peer Helper and a boy she had worked with in her assigned class. They were from very different social groups but she had earned this boy's trust. On this particular day, we were celebrating a local athlete turned Olympian.The students were encouraged to dress in Red and White and there were helium balloons everywhere. I noticed that EVERY one of this boy's group was dressed in red and white and sporting a helium balloon! This was not the usual, as these kids never participated in school spirit activities. As I walked past, I heard the boy say: "No one breaks their balloon before lunch time.Ashley said!" Ashley was his Peer Helper but HE was the leader of that peer group.The other kids listened to HIM. It was then that I realized that in order to affect positive change in our school, I had to train more than the usual student leaders in empathy. I created this workshop shortly thereafter and piloted it that spring.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Our need, within our school, is to develop a student body that is focused in on the needs of others in their communities, is empathetic to those needs and is actively involved in creating solutions as to how they can care for those needs. It is important to us that our students are the fore front leaders in these endeavors. As an Imagine school, we value student choice in decision making understanding that we are inspiring future leaders in America.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

In our Souperbowl of Caring, classrooms collect cans for our local hunger center and work on projects that meet the needs of others in our community. When our students enter Kindergarten, they choose a care group that they would like to care for. Students research the needs of their group and collaborate with their classmates to come up with a project that would best address those needs. As the students move up each grade level, they write reflections on how they have cared for their group in the past, what the needs are currently and how they can better reach out in the coming year. Students present their care projects at our Souperbowl of Caring pep rally in which we celebrate their outreach to others.

Our solution makes a difference through high student involvement. In her written reflection, one of our fifth graders commented that “the Souperbowl of Caring has helped me to care more about helping others and the environment”. She has participated in the Souperbowl of Caring for three years now caring for the environment. In their first year, they sought to plant and care for trees. The second year they raised money for organizations that supported the environment. This year they made their care project more service oriented by cleaning litter around school grounds and city parks. When asked if the Souperbowl has helped her to understand the needs of the environment more and develop a heart for caring for the environment, the same fifth grade student responded by saying “definitely! I didn’t care as much before but now I really do”. Her growth is not only seen in her comments and reflections, but in the progression of her classes care projects over the years from minimal involvement to service oriented projects.

Several organizations donate to hunger centers, plant trees in local parks or hold assemblies honoring our community leaders, however our endeavors are vastly different. The Souperbowl of Caring is entirely student run. It’s a reflective process from year to year that our students use to evaluate their own character and their own efforts in reaching out to their community in which they live. This event empowers our students with responsibility and decision making offering them an opportunity to truly get to know those they are serving while developing a committed heart as opposed to a one time thought.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

To date, we have collected over 6,000 cans for a local hunger center in our area. Each year we restock this center with our donations from Souperbowl of Caring. Since each classroom is responsible for caring for a different care group in our community, over the past three years our students have continued to meet the needs of community service members, veterans, active soldiers from our area, the elderly in our nursing homes, teachers, parents, city parks and streets, city schools including our own, and our city government. Our outreach through this event is wide spread and lasting as our students continue to see how they can better meet the needs of their care group from year to year.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

We project that next year we will be able to donate double the amount of cans that were donated this past year. We also project that our impact on the community will be much greater than in years past through the implementation of service learnning projects for our older students.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

A barrier that might hinder our success is the economy. Unfortunately, members of our community are enduring economic hardships that have no end in sight. We believe that this might effect future donations to our cause because families must first provide for their own before providing for others.branching out corp/businesses. annual event. planning ahead.

História: Queremos saber mais sobre o momento de descoberta desta solução. Conte-nos a história sobre onde e quando o(s) fundador(res) vislumbrou(aram) o potencial desta solução para mudar o mundo. [125 palavras]

Our physical education teacher was looking for different ideas that could inspire our students in leadership and character development when she came upon the Souperbowl of Caring. Although the Souperbowl of Caring is a nation wide event, she had the vision of making it personal and relevant to our campus. Normally, Souperbowl of Caring does one service project as a school. She envisioned each class doing a care project each year that focused on one specific care group so that our students could develop more ownership and have more involvement impacting greater portions of our community. Her hope was that upon graduation, students would develop a heart of caring for one specific group allowing them to be more sympathetic to others in need.
