Attention: Current or Aspiring Life Coaches, Moms on a Mission, Retired Teachers or School Professionals, and Anyone Who Loves Kids

Do you want to empower kids to feel confident
and comfortable in who they are?

You CAN make a difference AND make money
as a Certified Facilitator of our
Social/Emotional Empowerment curriculum.

Right now, kids in modern society are struggling like never before. They may have the latest sneakers and cell phones, but underneath it all, so many are unhappy and anxious.

There is an unbelievable amount of pressure on them to achieve. Pressure to do more, be more, get into the best schools, get the best grades, have the best experiences that will look good on the college applications, and on and on.

But this “achievement pressure” isn’t all kids have to deal with.

There’s also social pressure…the pressure to fit in, to be like everyone else, to do what others do, to follow the well-worn path. And untold cruelty, misery and punishment from peers and “the system” await them if they step out of line or dare to be a little different….If they dare to simply be themselves!

No wonder our kids are feeling more and more stressed, being bullied (or bullying), or turning to drugs! They are living in fear, and losing their connection to themselves.

It Doesn’t Have To Be This Way...And You Can Help.

Can you imagine a world where every child knew and appreciated their uniqueness, and had the confidence to express it?

What if kids could feel comfortable embracing others who seem different from them?

What if they were empowered to take control in a positive way when they experienced a challenge?

What would be possible for their future -- and ours -- if kids could experience this level of empowerment today?

Hi, I'm Jill Hope, and I decided to do something to end the epidemic of kids growing up with poor confidence and self-worth.

As a mom, parent educator, and an international parenting coach, I've long been troubled by how many kids I see struggling.

You see, I've always had a soft spot for kids. I always felt they were underestimated. As a teenager I was the favorite babysitter of my neighborhood. And I really believe it was because the kids felt that I understood them, accepted them as unique individuals, and always saw the best in them.

I also intuitively knew that kids have a natural connection with their heart and soul in a way that most adults don't. That is, until it is conditioned out of them through traditional schooling and parenting.

Then I learned from firsthand experience what happens when a child suffers with poor confidence and self-esteem...and the transformation in their life when they embrace their true inner power and fully accept who they are.

In my son's early days he was clingy, whiney, and in general, did not seem comfortable with who he was. My heart broke for him. And I worried about the possibility of his falling victim to bullying...or simply isolation and chronic loneliness as he failed to connect with himself and other kids.

I searched for a program I could enroll him in to help him develop the confidence to follow the beat of his own drum, listen to the inner nudges to follow his heart, develop inner confidence and resilience, and learn to accept himself fully, just as he was.

And I just couldn't find any such program.

Fortunately for my son, I knew about these inner qualities and how to nurture them, so I started incorporating these lessons into my parenting.

And in a very short span of time, I saw how my son shifted from lacking the confidence to try new things or make new friends, to embracing his feelings, confidently taking healthy risks, becoming a leader amongst his friends, all as he developed a strong sense of self and learned about his true inner power.

He blossomed. Instead of worrying about him, I knew that both his childhood and his future would be brighter and full of promise, even when I couldn't be there to support him. Now he could do it for himself!

And I wondered: what if the work I'd developed to help my son could be delivered to more kids?

Face it: We've Been Letting Kids Down... And It Has to STOP!

Society and its institutions train kids in the skills to manage their outer world: go to school, get good grades, go to college, get a good job.

But we've completely abandoned them when it comes to the skills to manage their inner world:Their thoughts, emotions, sense of self, inner strength, confidence, feelings of empowerment -- the things that truly make all the difference in their happiness and ultimate success.

While it would be wonderful if more schools could put a higher priority on this type of social and emotional guidance in the classroom, for many schools, the current environment of academic achievement just doesn't allow it.

And while some might argue that this is the parents' job, frankly, many parents just aren't equipped to foster strong self-acceptance, deep inner confidence, and emotional intelligence in their kids. (They're struggling too -- just to make ends meet and get through another day.)

Parents and schools need our help
if we want happy, confident kids!

Fortunately, there is another proven model that can give kids the guidance they need - guidance to help them develop a strong sense of self, create deep self-acceptance, greater confidence, build emotional intelligence and resilience so they can SHINE.

And the best news is, any caring adult can learn to deliver this guidance and support that fills the gap and gives kids what they need to reach their full potential, and live a happy, fulfilling, purposeful life!

"We have fewer referrals to the office...have noticed students willing to use a variety of self-soothing strategies, and overall improvement in emotional intelligence."

"Before we introduced the curriculum we saw students struggling to resolve conflicts independently or appropriately, friendships that were not positive (did not bring out the best in each person) and we did not have a dedicated time or place to work on emotional intelligence. Since implementing the curriculum we gained a common language to use with the students to discuss how to manage emotions, and we have observed more students choosing to be better/more positive friends. We have fewer referrals to the office for a particular group of students. We also have noticed students being willing to talk with the board social worker, students willing to use a variety of self-soothing strategies, and overall improvement in emotional intelligence."

~ Agnew H. Johnston School, Thunder Bay Ontario, Canada

"I feel so fortunate to have listened to my 'yes' and taken this opportunity to work with you."

~ Gauri Maini Hira, I Shine Facilitator, Bangalore, India

This holistic program provides resources for parents as well. The nine modules are well organized in providing guidance, strategies, lesson plans and more for educators and facilitators. I will recommend the I Shine program without reservation.""

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Would I Want to Become a Facilitator?

Becoming a facilitator allows you to teach a program that has been proven to increase confidence, reduce bullying behavior, and increase resilience in kids while giving you credibility, positioning you as an expert, and offering you solid income potential. There is no reason to reinvent the wheel when this program contains a complete solution to help make a difference AND make money.

Do I Need to Be an Educator or Have an Advanced Degree to Become a Facilitator?

No! Any caring adult can successfully administer this program. While many teachers and education professionals love and endorse the I SHINE Inner Wellness Curriculum, and have used it with great success in schools and outside of them, no previous experience or training is necessary.

How Do I Make Money as a Facilitator?

Options for bringing in revenue with the curriculum include charging participants per workshop, charging for a series of workshops, or charging a school, yoga studio, or after-school program for an hour of your time for each workshop you teach. We cover more about business-building ideas in the training calls and in the private Facebook group (you'll get lots of inspiration from your fellow facilitators too!) but here's just one way it could look:

Let's say you decide to run a series of 8 weekly workshops with the curriculum content. If you charge $18 per student per workshop, or $144 for the entire 8 week series, and you enroll just 15 students, you will bring in revenue of $2160 and more than make back your investment. Then you're making pure profit with your very next workshop!

What if I Don't Have the Money to Invest Now?

I know money is a scary thing for some people. I've been in some pretty scary financial situations myself where I didn't know how I would pay my next month's bills. But there is a huge difference between buying unnecessary items and investing in yourself and your ability to make a powerful impact in this world. When you invest in yourself and gain access to tools and information that can change not only your life but the life of many others, you will never be the same person you were before the investment. And the beauty of this program is that your investment can be recouped after you offer just one workshop! After that you're generating pure profit while making a difference. I can't think of many other purchases that would offer as good an investment.

I'm Not Sure This is the Right Time...Are You Doing This Again?

Let's face it, the best time to act is when you're feeling the inspiration. Our minds are set up to keep us safe and talk us out of things…even good, positive things that would make our lives better! This world isn't going to wait and there are kids out there right now who will only be reached through YOU. Remember, you can facilitate the curriculum on your own schedule -- many start "on the side" while they are still in other careers.

Now, I will offer this program again, but I don't know when and it's currently not scheduled. It will likely never be as affordable as it is today. Why put off something that you're inspired to do NOW?

"Can't wait to share it with others"

"As a retired School Counselor and Educator for 31 years, Jill's Inner Wellness Curriculum is the program I wish I had been able to use in my school to empower kids and be a part of the bully-proofing program. I love how Jill has developed a comprehensive program to help kids' shift from the 'inside-out'. The curriculum includes powerful lessons in 9 Modules that include deep breathing/visualizing and a meditation as part of each lesson. The surveys, family communication, and effective lesson plans are easy to follow and powerful! Being trained as a facilitator for this empowering curriculum allows one to lead groups within your community in schools, clubs, camps, places of worship, or in workshops to spread teaching kids how to take care of their emotions and themselves from within, so as to be responsible, respectful, and empowered citizens. I am grateful to Jill Hope for her creation of this unique and wellness driven curriculum and can't wait to share it with others."
