Our Program

Our research-based Ripple Middle School Advisory Program fosters a culture of connection in school communities through engagement activities, thought-provoking exercises, and purposeful play.

 

Using the Ripple Journals and Ripple Cards, students in grades 5-8 explore and assess their personal wellness and individual strengths, investigate and evaluate their relationships and connections, and examine the positive impact they can make in their communities.

The engaging advisory activities are designed to build and boost trusted adult relationships and peer-to-peer connections in your school community. The program is flexible and requires minimal to no prep for advisors. Students can complete the activities individually, in small groups, or as part of a larger advisory group.

  • Our four research-based workbooks developed by educators, do triple duty as a leadership log, connection curriculum, and wellness journal. Students explore by doodling, writing, drawing, reflecting, discussing, and setting goals.
