Flourish Agenda (formerly Leadership Excellence)
Our greatest source of potential power and effectiveness in working with young people is our ability to meaningfully connect to ourselves, and others. Through connection we build relationships that lead to learning, collaboration, community action and social change. However, in our work we often put tasks, strategies and skill building before relationship building. With fragile relationships, and without a clear sense of meaning and purpose in our personal and professional lives, we cannot build the interpersonal and collective power necessary to transform systems.
At Flourish Agenda we partner with schools, government agencies, and community organizations to provide transformative learning experiences that promote healing and well-being, and advance social change for urban youth.
We design culturally based transformative adult retreats, youth camps, curricula, and technology. Our methodology is based on the Radical Healing model, which is grounded in over 25 years of research and practice by co-founder Dr. Shawn Ginwright. The Radical Healing model, facilitates healing and hope to create pathways for urban youth to flourish!
(The work of Flourish Agenda ) was fun and helped me to analyze who I am and do some soul searching.
This work allowed me to understand that you will never nourish the minds of your students until you nourish the soul of the students.
