The curriculum delivers an opportunity for students to find their voices by creating a space where they can uncover what they value and what is important to them. The students enrolled become compassionate, empathetic change makers with a true understanding of the self- discovery process.
Participants will explore who they are as individuals, who/ what inspires them, what is important to them, what they value and where they would like to see change within their communities.

4th Grader, BECOME Particiant
I learned more about communicating with others and how to make positive changes in the world.
5th Grader, BECOME Participant
I learned that being a leader doesn't just mean being big and speaking out, it means that you have core values, and listening skills, you are compassionate and kind.
I loved this workshop! Thank you! I will come back next year.
I heard you're doing a BECOME summer program- that sounds awesome! If there is ever anything I can help with, you can always reach out to me or my mom! I would love to talk about what the BECOME program did for me. It made me the bold, energized, compassionate, open-hearted, mindful and empowered leader I am becoming today!
BECOME is an incredible program. We learned about core values and to really embrace the things that are important to us and that enhance the community around us. After attending it for about two months, I was inspired to put together a fundraiser on the Town Green. I have learned so much and highly recommend BECOME.
A Note from Kristin and Lindsay
We hope you and your families are well. We have certainly been living through unprecedented times that have redefined our thinking, reignited our passions, and hopefully will reshape our future.
Two years ago we developed BECOME to help guide young people into living more self-aware and self-confident lives. Our main goal has been to provide participants with the tools to step out as leaders in their communities. Over the past two years, we have led over 105 incredible students through the curriculum in after school workshops at the Field School in Weston, MA. We believe the curriculum is even more important as we move through the changing education model.
The program is a self-discovery journey in which the participants learn to identify their values, become active listeners, learn to advocate for themselves and others and ultimately engage their communities as changemakers. BECOME is social emotional learning at its best.
We are extremely excited to announce the BECOME Summer Leadership Program for grades 4th-9th. It is a two week program: 5 days a week with guided journaling, physical and mental exercises, and coaching. We look forward to leading participants through a fun, insightful and engaging experience. Time on zoom is minimized in order to maximize the time spent building awareness and connecting to the learning.
We look forward to watching your children BECOME.
Lindsay and Kristin
