Middle school students face tough issues every single day and need a safe space to talk about what’s really going on for them. Our middle school workshops provide that opportunity, while being fun, interactive and engaging.

Grade Level Workshops

Working with one grade level in one day, we provide five to six 45 minute workshops focused on creating more empathy, trust and understanding between students. Each 45 minute session is interactive and gives students the time to share, reflect and make commitments to contributing to a more respectful school community.

One Day “Get Respect” Program

This powerful 1-day workshop is perfect for a group of middle school students who are ready to take on their school community in a different way. Taking 50-60 students, we provide a day of connection and team building that is filled with skills, activities and inspirational sharing. From this workshop, students walk away with leadership skills that can impact the whole school. ½ days programs are also available.

IN ORDER FOR STUDENTS TO LEARN, THEY NEED TO FEEL SAFE. WE SUPPORT SCHOOLS TO INCREASE PHYSICAL AND EMOTIONAL SAFETY SO STUDENTS ARE SET UP FOR SUCCESS IN THE CLASSROOM.

We work with one grade-level at a time, allowing for more connection, meet students where they are, and then introduce them to a new possibility of what school could look like; a school where we look beyond assumptions and judgments and take the time to really get to know one another. Each and every workshop will leave students more connected to one another and inspired to make the school better for everyone.

“The challenges of a middle school student reach beyond academics and a G.P.A. Students struggle with fitting in with peers, stress of family relationships, and navigating in a small community, filled with judgment and drama. Soul Shoppe provides tools for middle school students, by teaching them to use empathy, and to consider what’s below the surface of a face, smile, frown, or silence. Our middle school community is a much nicer place because of Soul Shoppe.”
-Sandy Kontilis, M.A., Assistant Principal, Stone Valley Middle School
