It has helped me become more aware of my students given that before my major focus was on content delivery. Thanks to the training, I now pay attention to the students. It has helped me identify some of the reasons why a student may lag behind or miss school. - Teacher, Luigi Giussani High School

OUR THEORY OF CHANGE

IF we gaze upon the person while recognizing his/her value and dignity THEN we shall be able to foster a sense of belonging that reawakens a self-awareness in front of reality. IF the person becomes aware of the self THEN everything that she/he encounters becomes meaningful and interesting. IF the person discovers the meaning of reality THEN she/he engages with reality and becomes capable of confronting daily life situations with unwavering positivity and openness.

Our task is to give human beings back their identity because “the human person” is in a state of emergency. - Luigi Giussani Educationalist
