If you want to engage more actively in your community for positive change, here is your opportunity! In this five-week course taught by Jeannette Maré, Founder of Ben's Bells in Tucson, participants will explore and evolve their understanding of “kindness” through readings, videos, and class discussions about fundamental concepts and common misconceptions of kindness. Using a social science lens, participants will engage their curiosity about the complexity of humans to identify their own barriers to kind action. Jeannette Maré will provide the tools for participants to develop a thoughtful and detailed plan for putting their kind intentions into action, including plans for confronting their own misconceptions and fears so that their kind intention will be more likely to result in positive outcomes. Anyone who is committed to kindness and who wants to feel more confident in putting their kindness into action in their personal, professional, and community lives should consider taking this course.
