school events

Middle & high school are tough times for students with fitting in, cyberbullying and trying to be cool. An event with 365 Meaningful Conversations is all about creating a space for students to be real, share who they are and listen to one another—and the benefits are happier, healthier and more connected students!

Students are lonely

Benefits

  • Reduced bullying when skills such like compassion & empathy are taught

  • Increased connection means less depressed, anxious students in school — higher academic performances

THE MESSAGE

We teach 5 values listed below and allow hands on practice for people to dive into meaningful conversations, which allows people to feel seen, heard & accepted. My speech is titled Connecting Conversations—5 ways of being that’ll allow you to feel like you belong and I speak about my experience healing from sexual assault as an analogy for learning that vulnerability & authenticity allows for connection with others.

  • Be vulnerable & authentic when sharing your stories, experiences and emotions

  • Be compassionate & curious when listening

  • Be present—stay in the moment and off your phones

EVENT OPTIONS

  1. School-wide: host an assembly that covers how to have a meaningful conversation followed by break-out groups

  2. Partial student body: host a workshop for a part of the student body (ie: student council, a specific classroom, etc.) about how to have a meaningful conversation followed by break-out groups

  3. Teacher workshop: host a workshop for the teachers about facilitating meaningful conversations

Why me?

I’ve worked 350+ days in the backcountry as a wilderness therapy guide with at-risk students ages 13-18 years old—and I’ve sat with students in sunshine, thunder and snowstorms while listening to their experiences of being a teenager nowadays…and realized that schools need a way for real, deep and open conversations to happen between students more now than ever! I’m passionate about working within schools because students are often craving a spaces to share who they are—and that’s exactly what 365 Meaningful Conversations does!
