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.
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 Lindsay and Kristin
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 unprecedented times.
The program is a self-discovery process 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 individual 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 the learning.
Please share information about BECOME with friends and family.
