Bring Social and Emotional Learning, Mindfulness and Self-Care to Life!
1-2-3 Wellness is a powerful process that brings Social and Emotional Learning (SEL), Mindfulness and Self-Care to life for students, teachers and even parents!
Culture eats strategy for breakfast. 1-2-3 Wellness will help you transform your school or organization into a place where self-care and healthy relationships are the norm. Together, we focus on a ways to increase self-awareness, social awareness and responsible decision making through the art and science of mindfulness. Using a simple 3-step process, all learners are taught practical steps for becoming in-tune with their emotions and what they need in the moment. Learners are equipped with a rich library of wellness tools and taught to offer self-care so that they can responsibly be the directors of their social, emotional, behavioral and academic success. By learning to mindfully develop self and social awareness, label one’s emotions and chose a wellness practice that corresponds to that emotion, learners:
Increase self-care and agency
Increase their capacity to recognize and regulate emotions
Foster self-compassion, grit and perseverance
Increase empowerment skills and the capacity to meet their own needs proactively
Increase healthy habits which can translate to improved academic performance, social skills and behavior

Equip Students With Trauma-Informed Tools to Become Responsible for Their Own Behavior!
Empowered Behavior supports educators in empowering students to take responsibility for their behavior! Empowered Behavior offers educators both proactive and responsive practical trauma-informed tools to apply immediately when addressing behavior and school culture. With ten primary, high-leverage tools serving as the foundation (5 proactive and 5 responsive), we are able to strategically, simply and powerfully implement plans to not only meet student needs but to empower students with the tools to meet their own needs. Educators learn daily, neurologically based practices to proactively get started on the right foot as well as effective responsive (not reactive) approaches to behavior. Targets and outcomes addressed in this Empowered Behavior include:
Improved student behavior and academic outcomes due to increased focus and calm
Increased staff knowledge of what trauma looks like and what is happening in the brain
Increased staff capacity to effectively address student behavior in a trauma-sensitive manner
Increased relationship building between students and staff
Improved student and staff self-care strategies

Become a Change Agent In Your School, Community and the World!
Today, we can either fixate on the world’s problems OR we can identify problems and create ways to solve them. Students and teachers, with their creativity, high energy and desire to grow and learn, want to make the world a better place. Sometimes, they lack the structure, framework and supports to actualize this desire. Ripple Schools supports ALL learners in becoming the creators of real solutions to be proud of!
Many students, as mentioned, want to improve the world and, in some cases, don’t know where to start. The Ripple Schools program offers an exciting, dynamic opportunity for learners to start with themselves as a vehicle for changing the world.
Supported by a unique Ripple framework, learners start with their own relationship with self (the 1st ripple). Learners develop self-awareness, self-esteem, self-compassion, awareness of strengths and an overall positive self concept. Next, learners invest in their relationship with others (the 2nd ripple) in terms of communication and positive connection. Next, learners invest in their relationship with the world (classroom, school, community or even with a community in a different state or country) to create a better world (the 3rd ripple).
Investing in relationships - with self, others and the world- the Ripple Program is a game changer for students and adults alike!
