Fall CARE Package

OELC/CASO CARES, Community Action Ripple Effect Strategy (CARES), will support our leaders to create connections in their home communities. This Fall’s offerings will focus on the development of resilience for our young leaders as they return to school during this time. This Fall CARE Package is here to help you manage and grow through these unprecedented 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 as they face this school year and the uncertainties.

Through this OELC/CASO Fall CARE Package, leaders will receive a number of items to inspire connection, community, self-awareness, self-care and purpose. The Fall CARE package will include our ever popular OELC/CASO gear, a collection of self-care items, ripple effect challenge items and a Resilient Me Journal. The Resilient Me Journal (Version 2.0) 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! Refill option is available for those who received the Summer self-CARE Package!
