Beyond Test Scores: Building Characters and Nurturing Minds

The Stanford Club of Hong Kong is delighted to welcome a panel of 5 young education thought leaders from the realm of character education and positive education. Together, the panelists will share their insights innovating in education, including their personal journeys on:

  • Founding a kindergarten that focuses on character building and nurturing
  • Founding a learning community on character education and bringing that into Hong Kong schools
  • Founding a learning community to enlighten, encourage and empower all learners
  • Directing the leading non-profit in America to advance the science and practice of character development
  • Making positive education accessible to more Hong Kong schools

This event should be interesting not just to those working in education, but also to parents and families interested in learning more on how children develop character strengths.
