Barbara Shaiman and students at a
Champions of Caring presentation
at St. Augustine Preparatory School in
Champions of Caring offers personalized programs to motivate and inspire your students and staff. We have presented at schools and conferences locally, nationally and internationally.
Our Champions of Caring Speakers Bureau is comprised of students, teachers and Champions of Caring staff who are available to share their experiences with service and involvement with Champions of Caring to inspire youth to make a difference in their own school and community. Our Champions speak about how they have taken their own passions and interests, for activities ranging from salsa dancing to tennis to fashion design, and turned them into sustainable service projects to address local or global social issues. These projects include creating an intergenerational program to teach salsa to the elderly, organizing clinics to teach tennis to youth with disabilities, and designing t-shirts to raise awareness about genocide in Darfur. They also share examples and strategies for how to act as a Champion, and stand up and speak out against injustices, in any social, educational, or professional situation.
“Champions Day” Workshops
Champions Day workshops engage students and teachers in a series of activities and reflection exercises to sensitize them to the issues in their school and community, empower them to take action to address these issues and inspire them to create “cultures of caring”. These events can be tailored to address the unique issues facing schools and communities.
Parent and Community Workshops
We also offer speeches and workshops for educators, parents and community members to help them to identify the roles that they can play in encouraging youth to become Champions of Caring and inspire them to get involved in service. Our staff will motivate them to reflect on their own passions, interests and skills and create intergenerational projects that make positive changes in their communities.
