When careful attention is placed on creating a safe space to express, without judgment, children who are otherwise hesitant or unwilling to express their truth come ALIVE.
Their youthful exuberance, unique perspectives and fresh, innovative ideas benefit us all. It is they who will play a critical role in propelling society toward embracing and developing the change that is needed now, and in the future.
At Austin StartUp School, we are committed to cultivating and tending a space to help children unleash their heroic voices – and change the world!
