What people are saying about ‘RISE UP’

“Several SEL activities used would be awesome for my students!”

Teacher, GA

“This was such a great workshop, and so were the exercises we did. I think now more than ever, and we need help with this. Sometimes we just need a moment to reflect and rethink so we can react differently… more positively.”
