"I was nervous, challenged, supported, loved and in the end, grew more in three days than I thought was possible."
Michelle D - Personal Life Coach

Challenge Day

Introducing our simple three-step Formula for Change – Notice, Choose & Act, our trademark If You Really Knew Me activity, and other activities that can be adapted to a variety of settings.

Because we believe our role modeling is always our best teaching tool, Our facilitators powerfully share a wide range of life lessons and experiences that help create a backdrop for providing an in-depth analysis of the theory and practice behind Challenge Day.

Originally designed for educators and students desiring to keep the spirit of Challenge Day alive in their schools, our Next Step to Being the Change Workshop has become a powerful communication and connection tool for relationships of all kinds.

"An amazing experience for my entire family! We came to learn and left in love!"
Marianne B.

Incorporating a series of proven community building strategies into every activity, our skilled facilitators model what it means to create safety in relationship and to build acceptance among diverse groups of individuals.

While the program is loaded with simple tools that can be applied in any group setting, the primary focus of this workshop is to provide participants with the first hand experience of what it means to live in a world where every child (everyone) feels safe, loved, and celebrated.  Our compassionate approach to ending social oppression in schools, families, and communities provides diverse groups of adults, and teens with an undeniable first-hand experience of group support and personal connection.

"An almost instant and exhilarating experience transcending class, race, gender and all the divisions that separate us from what we all have in common…our humanity."
B.G. - Circle Coordinator
