Middle School / High School Program

The Middle School / High School Packages encourage participants to take specific steps toward making their own positive legacy a reality. 60-minute presentations and follow-up materials will challenge students and staff to show compassion, learn from their mistakes and forgive themselves and others. Participants examine their own lives in the light of personal challenges – to dream big and start their own chain reaction of kindness and compassion.

The packages are separated into AwakenSustain and Immerse to allow programming customization and flexibility for your school. Immerse gives you our complete set of tools and resources to fully implement the Rachel's Challenge vision with high fidelity.

Chain Reaction Program

Chain Reaction is a separate program from the Awaken, Sustain, and Immerse packages. The Chain Reaction program is usually conducted a short time after a school has had one of the other three packages.
