Join me for an fascinating interview with a high school student named Jocelyn Parker and a young mother named Kelly McGuire whose lives have been transformed by Challenge Day.
Since 1987 Challenge Day has served over one million youth in 400 cities, 47 U.S. states, and five provinces of Canada.
Serenditity West is a non-profit organization whose mission is “To awaken teens to their magnificence and power…to create bold new futures. They do this by helping schools across the nation bring in Challenge Day. Along with the organization "Foundations that Make a Difference", they are able to help schools find get funding and continue the Challenge Day program throughout the year.
Serendipity West Foundation believes that separation, isolation and loneliness are the root cause of a wide range of teen issues such as teasing, bullying, stereotyping, racism, violence, suicide, and the use of drugs, alcohol and tobacco. By bringing Challenge Day (and other related programs) to middle and high schools, students can learn important leadership skills, increase empathy for each other and gain intellectual flexibility. They become more self-confident with an improved sense of their ability to relate well with others. They increase their skills in noticing oppression (bullying) and isolation and can practice safe and effective intervention.
