A breakthrough experience to bring classmates together. "Changed my life forever."
Challenge Day is an award winning social and emotional learning workshop that has been around for 30 years, and has worked with 1.5 million people. We work with middle and high schools in the US, Canada, The Netherlands and all over the world. It's more than just an anti-bullying workshop, it's more than just bringing in a motivational speaker. Challenge Day is an experience. One that is designed to build community and have an impact on each student's life, but also help shift the school culture to a more inclusive one. We don't just come in and talk for hours. We play games, we have fun, we dance and we run around. And then other times, we slow things down and have some real conversations.
The concept is simple: once a student's social and emotional needs are met, their grades go up and their overall life satisfaction improves. Our intention is to create a safe space for people to be themselves, to be able to express themselves without feeling judged. We're one of the longest running and most successful school programs in the world.
Our work has been supported by America's Got Talent winner Matt Franco, Kristine Carlson, Marianne Williamson, Lisa Ling, Alanis Morissette, and Arnold Shapiro, Emmy-award winning producer, among others. We've been featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show, MTV, a Tom Brokaw special and dozens of other media outlets.
Society has evolved so much in the last few decades. Schools and teachers have known for a long time that there needs to be a major shift in the educational system in order to keep up in a changing world. Challenge Day has gone into every setting you can imagine: different demographics, different age groups, different parts of the world. Regardless of where we go, the outcome is the same. It simply works. Because at the end of the day, we're all just human beings who want to be fully seen, respected and understood.
It'll change your life and your kids' lives. It's a special, amazing experience.
We truly believe that social and emotional learning is the future of education.
Our dream is to create a world where everyone feels safe, loved and celebrate.
