Ignite Your Child’s Imagination. Sign up for:
VISION: NEW YEAR | NEW BEGINNINGS
October 12, 9 – 10:30am
In 2028 when many of today’s elementary school students will be preparing to graduate high school, the global population will be pushing 8.3 billion, Islam will be the world’s largest religion with 2.2 billion followers, and the ‘average’ person will be a 34-year-old Indian man. Wearable technology will be controlled by thought, 50% of today’s jobs will be replaced by artificial intelligence, and 3D printing will allow many products to be produced on location, reducing the need for transportation.
Many educators, parents, and caregivers are asking, “How do we prepare our children for success in this fast-paced, ever-changing world?”
Stapleton United Neighbors has partnered with champions for children in our community to launch an inaugural VISION event to support families with children ages 8-18 in imagining the possibilities for their future.
Join a commUNITY of parents and children and get ready to time travel into the future. This interactive experience will equip parents and children with the tools and dispositions needed to build brilliance to transform the world.
Spend time in commUNITY cultivating relationships with like-minded families. Engage in Socratic Seminar to cultivate a growth mindset and immerse yourself in inspiration and imagination. With your best self in mind, design your Destination Statement, and identify the network of support and your “informal college” that will support your success.
Prior to the event, please complete the following activity with your child:
- Think about a moment when you were your absolute best. Encourage your child to consider academic, extra-curricular, and relational moments in their lives.
- Write, type, or compose a voice memo describing that moment.
- Reflect and think of three words that describe you at your best.
Every time you walk through a doorway, say those three words to yourself to remind you to show up as the best version of yourself possible.
This free and open to the public event is hosted by Stapleton United Neighbors in partnership with Building Brilliance. It will be held at Denver Green School in North Stapleton.
Space is limited. Register at: www.drjea.com
Special thanks to the sponsors whose support has made this event free and open to the public: Office Depot, Stabio Productions, forte advertising and Denver Green School.
