After surveying hundreds of elementary school-aged children, Sara has noticed that 100% of children know what bullying is, yet only 10-20% of them know compassion. Instead of merely focusing on anti-bullying, COMPASSION IT challenges schools to consider what it might look like to have a pro-compassion approach.
Through this fun and interactive workshop, Stanford-trained COMPASSION IT team members educate students about compassion-for-others, empathy, self-compassion and more. They invite students to join the social movement of COMPASSION IT, and students attain a sense of well-being by knowing that they are a part of something bigger than themselves.
Former participants include primary schools in Botswana and elementary and middle schools in San Diego.
