Are you a teacher, principal, or homeschooling parent? You are most likely gearing up for the Back-to-School season. Now is the time to order The Backpack Program for your September start!
Why should I use The Backpack Program for my school or homeschool classroom?
1. Your students will hugely benefit!
This one is straightforward and the main reason to run this course. Through this program your students will be exposed to crucial concepts such as self-awareness and choice, anxiety and stress management, healthy relationships, help-seeking behaviour, interrupting ruminating and unhealthy thought patterns, etc. This program prompts students to develop their own identity and hold onto it in what can be an increasingly busy and confusing world. They will learn Progressive Muscle Relaxation as an introduction to Contemplative Prayer. Young adults who have gone through this program as teenagers say it changed everything for them, including their choices. We want this for the young people in your care.
2. Your students will enjoy themselves!
Not only will the lessons impact how your students live their lives, they will enjoy the process of learning! The material is designed to be engaging and thought provoking. It meets them where they are and invites them to go deeper. There is also lots of space for facilitated discussion, so students will be able to express themselves throughout. We also include plenty of activity suggestions in our Leader's Guide so you will have the ability to adapt activities to your circumstance and age group.
3. It is super easy for you to teach.
This program was designed to be easy for teachers and parents to implement. When you purchase the Quick-Start Program you will receive all video lessons, a workbook, a Leader's Guide, a poster set, free access to our Facilitator's Zoom group, and a discount on any workbooks purchased. This means you will have everything you need to succeed. The lessons are all pre-recorded. You can simply hit play and let us do the teaching!
4. You will also benefit!
Any Backpack Facilitator will tell you that when they lead a group they are on a journey, too. When this program was first developed we had so many teachers saying they wish they had the information sooner for themselves, we developed Backpack for Adults! Learning how to better deal with anxiety, how to identify negative thought patterns, and becoming an expert at locating virtue in oneself and in others will be a benefit everyone! Facilitating this program is a hugely rewarding experience. To read more about the experience as a Leader, read Backpack Facilitator Meg Maas' thoughts.
5. We make it as affordable as possible
We have kept the cost of this program to a minimum in order to make it as accessible as we can. The Quick-Start pack is $250 and includes everything you need as a teacher or parent. If you need additional workbooks a 15% discount is available. Saying that, our primary goal will always be to make content available, so if you are interested in running this program or taking it yourself but are not sure how to finance, please reach out to us at email@example.com and we will work with you!
If you have any questions about the program, or want to know more, get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org! We can set up a Zoom meeting or have a chat on the phone.
