Calm Clarity and KIPP Philadelphia Collaborate to Address Toxic Stress

On March 20, 2015, Calm Clarity ran the first of a series of professional development workshops at KIPP Dubois Collegiate Academy in Philadelphia. The aim of the training is to equip teachers and staff with tools and techniques to reduce the impact of toxic stress, improve well-being, and reduce burn-out.

Calm Clarity and KIPP Philadelphia plan to collaborate to offer all ten modules of the Calm Clarity Program to staff and teachers and to eventually train teachers to provide the Calm Clarity Program to their students.

“Calm Clarity is an effective program geared at increasing mindfulness and reducing stress. This creates a more productive work environment.
As a School Leader I deal firsthand with the effects of stress on staff and students. We are working with Calm Clarity in order to give tools to students to address their major stress factors. It is a vehicle to address the negative impacts of the greater society on our students in a systemic way.
I highly recommend the program and look forward to continued collaboration in the future.”

Aaron Bass, Chief of Staff
