Roots of Empathy

After the service on Sunday, June 23, in the Mt. Baker Room at around 11:30 am, you are invited to a lively discussion about Roots of Empathy, an international award-winning program that supports grade school kids with engaged citizenship, emotional well-being, and experience less bullying. At the heart of the program is a baby as a “tiny teacher” of empathy. Sara Airoldi, Whatcom Program Manager, and Margie Kimberly, Volunteer Roots of Empathy Instructor will lead a Q&A about how you can help make this possible in Bellingham and Whatcom County classrooms, and fill your cup in the experience! 

There are opportunities for folks to get trained to facilitate the curriculum 1x/week in a classroom, and for parent(s) with a new baby born this summer to visit the classroom 1x/month starting in October. Or come to learn more, share the delight, and spread the word! For more information on this program
