The School Unity Project is a follow-up to the YOGOWYPI Experience assembly and reinforces the themes of positive life choices, the power of meaningful relationshipships, getting past negative conditioning and learning to create positive personal breakthroughs that can have a lasting affect on our direction in our lives.

What is SUP?

It is a map, and a compass for how to deal with the relationships of our lives.  As we move through our lives we learn a lot of stuff, but we spend very little time thinking about the one thing that has the greatest impact on the quality of our lives - relationships. High school is really the best place for understanding the role relationships play in determining the quality of our lives. Through a series of activities students will reflect on the relationship choices they have made in the past (the map of where they have been) and will understand how they can make better choices about their relationships in the future. Bottom-line how we treat others and how we treat ourselves has a huge affect on how we feel (the compass).The School Unity Project gives students an opportunity to understand, start over, and teaches them how to clean it up when we mess up. Upon completion of the 'SUP students will have a road-map, and a compass for building a better life as well as some great tools for creating a compelling school culture.

What they will learn

  • Student ownership of relational map and compass

  • Urgency to improve relationships through understanding the Senior Spiral

  • All school attention on the importance of building meaningful relationships now

  • A powerful-shared relatioship building experience from which to draw

  • The realization that we all have different pains/struggles and acceptance of those differences

  • School-wide respect of each persons unique journey 

  • Improved school culture from living the Inside-Out Agreements:

        The Power of Words

        Take Nothing Personally

        In-joy vs In-apathy

        Living Your Best Self

        'SUP: The compass and map to stay on track
