Crew Culture

Reopening 2020

Social-Emotional Wellness and Academic Learning are interconnected and interdependent; do not separate these two. Social-Emotional Wellness is bolstered through both the structure of Crew (a dedicated time for connections and care) and the culture of Crew (strong interpersonal relationships and a culture of care embedded and integrated into academic learning throughout the day). Now more than ever, staff and students need a dedicated space—Crew—for connection and relationship-building that is trauma-responsive, anticipating the potential existence of trauma so that its aftermath can be appropriately addressed at all levels of an organization.
