The CAGS in Resiliency is a must no matter your role as an educator, counselor, or related provider.

My self-awareness, self-care, confidence and positive world outlook have developed in the journey. From gaining self-compassion to more awareness of how I lead, the program has helped me to develop a vision for my personal and professional life.

I would recommend the program to anyone looking to grow as a person and as well as a professional.

Guidance Counselor, Marlborough Public Schools

I was able to branch out of my comfort zone and try something new, making me a better counselor.

The courses in this program enhanced my skills and taught me how to meditate in a way that would be safe and successful for me, which would allow me to use with my students. Being able to embed these practices in my life is a benefit to myself and my students as well!

It was a genuine honor and a true blessing to be part of this fantastic program.

The impact of the work that I did will stay with me throughout both my professional and personal life. Everything that I did in this program felt relevant and validated my best instincts as to where we should be going in education.
