(Minimum gift of $75,000 or $15,000 per year for five years.)

Developing students’ skills in character-based leadership is one of the components in our strategic plan. We plan to hire six teachers across all divisions to write lessons during the summer to address opportunities in the curriculum to further develop the students’ empathic listening skills (seek first to understand; put themselves in the shoes of others), their skills in conflict resolution, negotiation, systems thinking and principal-based decision making. We want to put more ethical dilemmas in front of the children − provide them thinking routines and considerations as they come to a conclusion about the best way to proceed.
