The Mindful Growth Initiative is excited to announce a fall 2021 workshop series to develop Purpose + Belonging Informed Educators.

Educators who attend this series of workshops will learn about the science of purpose and belonging, have an opportunity to define their own purpose as people and professionals and learn how to infuse evidence-based best practices directly into their work with students.

Tim Klein, an award-winning urban educator, clinical therapist, school counselor and writer, will be facilitating this workshop series. Tim has spent the last decade working intensively with marginalized and underserved students to empower them to pursue meaningful and fulfilling lives. Tim is a former teaching Fellow at Harvard University and is the project lead for the True North Program at Boston College. His co-authored book, How to Navigate Life, The New Science of Finding Your Way in School, Career, and Beyond will be available fall 2021.

  • Workshop One: An Introduction To Purpose + Belonging (10/01 10-12)
    In this interactive workshop, educators will be introduced to the four core elements of purpose and how purpose can be used as a shared language to build powerful relationships with students. 
  • Workshop Two: Exploring The Personally Meaningful (10/15 10-12)
    In the second workshop, educators will personalize the second pillar of purpose by considering: What do I find personally meaningful? They will explore the science of personality strengths and universal human skills and learn how to integrate them inside and outside the classroom.
  • Workshop Three: Going Beyond The Self (10/29 10-12)
    In the final workshop, educators will articulate the final pillar of purpose by considering: What’s the positive impact I want to make? They will explore the science of prosocial intentions and how advantages and adversity inform our desire to do good in the world.
