Where Curriculum becomes COMMUNITY
Preparing youth to be engaged learners and socially responsible citizens
Whether you’re teaching in a school, a team, or a youth-serving organization, Owning Up is a flexible, dynamic curriculum that respects your knowledge of young people and communities you serve.
CommunityWe have created the Owning Up Community to connect and encourage all of us to do our best work. We strive for unity over uniformity because collaboration makes us stronger.
Great educators, no matter what they teach, rely on reciprocal relationships with colleagues.
A truism of teaching is that no curriculum will cover everything that happens in class.
We are here to support you.
Share your favorite teaching tricks/tips/skills and tools with your friends and colleagues in friendly, no-pressure work-alongs.
Get together to work on Owning Up lessons, help each other out and share your work.
Meet new people in your field, organization or community - and find out what we can do when we work together.
"Owning Up is an invaluable curriculum. I have used it consistently for 15 years in many settings. It is particularly relevant for middle schoolers, who need guidance in the operations of social culture and how to navigate the often treacherous landscape of relationships through middle school and beyond."
Julie Baron, LCSW-C, Former Middle School Counselor, Adolescent Therapist,
and co-author of What Works With Teens
