This learning event is right for you if you are a teacher or leader looking for a program to bring purpose and belonging to your students' lives.


We know that students and educators are facing a new world of remote learning, social isolation, and more screen time than ever. Project Wayfinder has deliberately designed curriculum to foster meaningful connection and counteract the rising tide of loneliness and other teen mental health concerns. With questions about the school year looming large, the Wayfinder team invites you to join an upcoming 'Waybinar' to learn how to leverage Wayfinder's foundations of purpose and belonging to guide your school community in a positive direction in the face of unprecedented uncertainty.

“This program gave me an opportunity to examine what actually matters to me and how I can make that relevant and purposeful in my life."

Key takeaways                 

  • how COVID-19 could change education for the better
  • how to foster meaningful connections
  • how to rebuild school community through purpose and belonging.
