Don’t just survive. 
Thrive.

Educators Thriving offers research-based personal development programs to help educators achieve well-being.

Educators Thriving supports educators to achieve well-being.

We believe that attending to the well-being of educators is a prerequisite to achieving the results with students that each of us desires. Through our program, participants learn concrete, evidence-based strategies to help them avoid and manage most common pitfalls of the educator experience: being overwhelmed, personal neglect, struggling with a fixed mindset, unexpected challenges, and isolation. 

Over the past four years, we've facilitated the program with educators in districts across the United States. Participants reported statistically significant declines in burnout, depression, and anxiety alongside increases in resilience and subjective well-being.

You choose the sessions you want your people to experience from our content library. Once you've made your selections, our tech team creates a customized, members-only website for program participants and provides ongoing technical support as needed.

Together with our partners, we craft a customized well-being survey that is administered at baseline and at the end of the program. On the basis of the results, our research team runs statistical analyses and produces a synthesis report that includes clear, actionable next steps to improve employee well-being.
