Finding Heroes helps you bring a greater wellbeing focus into your classroom.
Finding Heroes is a professional development workshop that aims to inspire teachers, educators, and youth professionals to bring a greater wellbeing focus into their classroom. The workshop is youth-led and complements Reach’s workshops for students.
Finding Heroes aims to achieve the following outcomes for attendees:
- Increased confidence in bringing a wellbeing focus to your classroom
- Improved ability to engage and communicate with students about wellbeing
- Connection with a community of peers
- Increased resilience and wellbeing for teachers
- Increased ability of teachers to apply a positive education approach to their school
“Finding Heroes helped me not only think about my role as an educator, but it made me better on my personal journey and pathway forward.”
The Finding Heroes Workshop is based on two decades of Reach experience working in schools and effectively engaging groups of students. The program is underpinned by the internationally renowned positive psychology framework that is being fast adopted by schools across Australia.
Like all Reach workshops, Finding Heroes is designed and delivered by the young Reach crew who have firsthand knowledge of the challenges and opportunities facing young people today.
The workshop explores the theoretical underpinnings of Reach’s work with young people, whilst providing a dynamic and highly experiental workshop - just like those experienced by young people. Using the ‘Hero’s Journey’, attendees will learn how to apply this model in the classroom to empower students to learn about themselves and their lives.
Following the workshop, attendees are able to implement the practical curriculum provided whilst supported by an integrated online resource kit featuring six modules and more than 20 classroom activities.
