About the Caring Community Project

We invite your involvement  and  support in Creating Compassionate Children and a Caring Community

 

Imagine a neighbourhood where all children feel safe, seen, cared for   and encouraged.

Imagine growing up among adults and   institutions where the values of kindness, compassion, and respect are the foundation for all relationships.

Lets get together and talk about:

WHAT CAN PEOPLE AND COMMUNITIES DO TO   ENCOURAGE COMPASSION, COOPERATION  AND CONFIDENCE IN CHILDREN?

The project is about learning and  understanding from each other by sharing stories and experiences.

It’s about asking the questions:

  • How can we create more compassionate, cooperative and confident children in the Frog Hollow Neighbourhood?
  • Was there a time in your childhood when someone said or did something that had the greatest impact on your ability to be compassionate, cooperative    and/or confident?
  • Was there a time when you had the greatest impact on  developing the compassion,  cooperation and/or confidence of someone who was younger than you?
  • How can we dream together to build a better community?

We want to hear about it.

Next Training Session:

Part A: Friday, September 23rd, 6:30 pm to 9 pm

Part B: Saturday, September 24th, 11:30 am to 4 pm.

Training is FREE.
