Day 1: Empathy to Impact

Vocation is one’s response to a call from outside of oneself to use one’s strengths and gifts to impact the world, making it a better place through service, creativity, and leadership.

The concept of vocation rests on the belief that life
is about more than me. 


Inspire teachers, students, community members, and global citizens to utilize their learning, skills & talents to be empathetic and impactful people,
acting for the good of all
and for the sustainable development of the world.
