Phillips Academy: Fostering Student Leadership through Dignity
September 2 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am EDT
In our pursuit of cultivating a culture of dignity, we recognize that it requires more than empty slogans or superficial programs. To truly foster an environment where dignity thrives, we embrace a principle-based approach that provides individuals with both structure and flexibility. This approach allows us to transform common social challenges into valuable teachable moments, affirming the dignity of every individual and nurturing a profound sense of belonging.
Through this journey, we will delve deep into the concept of dignity, exploring its nuances and distinctions. We will equip ourselves with practical strategies that empower us to teach and model dignity daily. By doing so, we create an environment where strong and supportive relationships flourish, enabling adults and young people to thrive.
