Level UP, presented by Karen, this presentation was brought about by engaging with educators and learners alike and discovering that our young people need help with the aftermath that COVID-19 is leaving in its wake. Karen has a special gift with dealing with youth groups, she gets them and they appreciate her sense of humour. The presentation covers the many challenges brought about by the pandemic and most of them unforeseen.
The entire world was locked down and in the aftershocks individuals of all ages are battling to cope. Death, destruction and the demise of economies are among many of the problems faced.
The greatest challenge is not that we want to get back to where we were. The reality is that for many of us the past is over with no chance of a repeat. So the question is: Where to from here? How do we keep going? How do we achieve things we never thought possible? How do we impact the world every day? How do we stay well and strong?
There is no Go-Back. But there is grace and energy for a Comeback. To LEVEL UP. To make good on surviving the storm. To build on what we have learnt. To embrace and co-create the New Now. All we need is the Know-how and some support.
This brief talk covers the following:
- The 8 skills needed to excel in the 21st century
- Staying grounded in crisis
- Levelling Up … moving to the next growth level
- Understanding stress and building resilience
How this project works is that we find sponsors who are willing to pay a small fee for Karen to travel to the schools and deliver this presentation. No cost to schools or learners at all.
Once the presentation is done, the learners are directed to specially designed filters – donated by the agency VMYL&R who used their social responsibility time to create this for Kindness Corporation – they download the filters and used them on their social media pages. Please consider a donation towards this
