Despite the significant disruptions of COVID-19, our mission remains unwavering. In our increasingly complex world, empathy, communication, perspective-taking, and problem-solving are the universal building blocks for understanding ourselves and others.
This year has presented immense challenges for schools across the country. Schools are having to reallocate funds to purchase PPE, hire additional janitorial staff, and improve ventilation systems. Simultaneously, students' social and emotional needs are higher than ever.
As the educational landscape has shifted, Changing Perspectives has pivoted to meet schools’ needs and ensure that our programming continues to be relevant, accessible, and impactful.
