self-CARE Package

OELC/CASO CARES, Community Action Ripple Effect Strategy (CARES), will support our leaders to create connections in their home communities. This summer’s offerings will focus on the development of resilience for our young leaders during this time. This self-CARE Package is here to help you manage and grow through these difficult times. Based on positive psychology founder, Martin Seligman’s principle of PERMA: positive emotion, engagement, relationships, meaning and achievement; youth will be provided intentional opportunities to connect with one another, direct energy toward purpose and reflect on their growth during this time.

Through this OELC/CASO self-CARE package, leaders will receive a number of items to inspire connection, community, self-awareness, self-care and purpose. The self-CARE package will include our ever popular OELC/CASO gear, a collection of self-care items, ripple effect challenge items and a downloadable Resilient Me Journal. The Resilient Me Journal includes writing prompts, an action planning template and other tips and tricks to inspire growth that will spark awareness, creativity, gratitude and reflection.

A fresh round of OELC/CASO gear, delivered in an organic washable Fluf backpack, amongst other iconic OELC/CASO items, will help them “gear-out”, connecting them to a community of changemakers creating a ripple effect of positivity across the province!

As a compliment to the self-CARE Package, for those interested, in accessing our All Access Pass of summer online offerings a $50 discount will apply. When registering click “self-CARE Package + All Access CARE Pass”.
