Global Awareness


Meaning and Purpose Through Everyday Service

Friday, November 10
8:00 AM - 9:00 AM
Location: 207 BC

Never has the reality of interdependence of people across the globe been so real. This calling into global citizenship can be experienced as an opportunity for growth and expansion or as a burden to shoulder. Some gifted children have equally compassionate gifted hearts, caring deeply about others throughout the world. How can we create a sense of security, safety and confidence for these gifted children in a world of unrest? Can individual contributions make a difference? Incorporating decades of therapeutic experience and research with gifted youth, this session defines ways to diminish worries and fears, simplify what is truly essential, and foster hope through meaningful service in everyday life.
