Workshop

What Happened to Childhood?

Join Let Grow president and co-founder Lenore Skenazy in this professional learning workshop. She’ll help you explore how and why childhood experiences have changed over the years. Plus, learn how we can all get involved to change both minds and behavior.

Workshop

The Let Grow Parent Kickoff

Available as in-person, or a virtual event, we’ll help you look at why our culture looks at kids as fragile. Plus learn why this holds students back from being independent, resilient, and confident. Finally, we’ll show you how Let Grow school programs can help. 

Book Study

Don’t Label Me by Irshad Manji

Don’t Label Me: How to Do Diversity without Inflaming the Culture Wars provides fresh, relatable guidance that fits well with any school’s diversity, equity, and inclusion programs. Participants gain a powerful perspective on how to tackle the challenges of your school and community.

Book Study

Free-Range Kids by Lenore Skenazy

Free-Range Kids: How to Raise Safe, Self-Reliant Children (Without Going Nuts with Worry) is a thought-provoking and funny parenting book that looks at the courage it takes for parents to let kids try things on their own, which isn’t always easy! Participants will get into great discussions, along with author Lenore, who is co-founder of Let Grow.

Online Course

Learning and Teaching Moral Courage™

This online course for educators explores the Moral Courage framework for navigating emotionally charged issues and viewpoints. Since it’s self-paced, educators can work through video case studies, problem-solving scenarios, role-plays, and independent exercises on their own schedule. Educators will come away with the knowledge and tools to teach Moral Courage to their students. Coming Spring 2021.

Teaching educators how to handle differences of opinion is among the most important tasks we are currently facing in the classroom. I applaud Let Grow for having the courage to move in this direction.
