One of Rise Up’s foundation goals is to create a community of educators that support and encourage one another. One of the ways we have been able to bring teachers across the country together is by hosting annual #Impact Retreats. These retreats provide an opportunity for educators to come together, share their experiences and best practices, and learn from one another.
The retreats are designed to be a space where educators can connect with other educators, gain new skills and strategies, and learn about the latest developments in education. They provide a forum for teachers to collaborate and share ideas on how to best support student learning and success. The retreats offer a variety of workshops, interactive sessions, and networking opportunities to help educators grow professionally and personally.
Impact Retreat – Sailing In 2023
We are thrilled to announce that for this year’s Impact Retreat, The Rise Up Foundation is hosting a sub-conference with Teach Your Heart Out to take 100 teachers on an all-expenses-paid cruise to the Bahamas! This exciting opportunity will provide educators with a unique and memorable experience while also providing a chance for professional development, community building and relaxation.
The cruise will offer a variety of workshops, interactive sessions, and networking opportunities to help educators grow professionally and personally. Additionally, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in fun activities and excursions such as snorkeling, island hopping, beach parties and more.
In addition to the professional development opportunities, the cruise will also provide activities that promote community bonding and relaxation. We will have a team building activities that will help to create a sense of camaraderie among the attendees and also you can enjoy the ocean and the sun on the ship.
Impact Retreat 2022 – Building Community
In 2022, we hosted 40 teachers from across the country in Temecula, California for a weekend full of professional development, community bonding, and wine tasting!
Impact Retreat 2021 – Forging Ahead
In 2021, we hosted 7 teachers in California and quickly realized this was the start of an amazing community. These teachers are now known as the “minions” and have been with us in the building of our Between The Pages Teacher Ambassador program.
