We partner with people and organizations whose values and activities are aligned with ours. Partnership might look like The Source School sponsoring another organization’s event, or it might look like another organization sponsoring our work. It might also look like The Source School and another organization working together on a common project. We understand the sharing of resources such as money, food, space, or expertise to be a partnership in bringing our vision, and those of others, to life. Please reach out if you want to discuss how partnership could enhance the value we each bring to the education ecosystem.
We thank the Ed Forum of Maine; El Corazón Restaurant and The Heartfelt School, both in Portland, ME; and Dr. Angel Acosta of the Acosta Institute in the Bronx, NY for partnering with us.
We are thrilled to be partnering with Dr. Angel Acosta again, this year to support the second Healing-Centered Education Summit: Play, Slow Work, & Our Collective Flourishing, October 7-10, 2022.
We are fundraising now to support Maine educators of color to attend. Let us know if you’d like to help sponsor the scholarships.
What is Healing-Centered Education? Over the last four decades, social-emotional learning (SEL), mindfulness-based and contemplative education, trauma-informed care, restorative justice and decolonizing education have formed part of the frameworks that constellate the healing-centered turn in educational discourse. However, the notion of healing-centered education is still fairly new in the realm of educational practice and academic research.
