Only by working together toward a common goal can we actually tend to the spirit of our communities and ourselves. This is the promise of #SpiritCorps, which begins with short video stories of personal challenge and triumph from SERIES staff and program friends, inspired by the lives of the historic heroes we celebrate. These videos — each focused on an essential attribute — are now available to teachers, students and their families who are asked, after viewing our heartfelt accounts, to explore the virtue they exemplify and then respond with their own short videos.
Envisioned as a nation-wide initiative launched in 2022, the #SpiritCorps “conversation” will begin in Maine this coming year, with 8,000 sixth through eighth grade students at 100 partner schools projected to participate. Thanks to a very generous lead gift, #SpiritCorpsMaine is already 50% funded and will be provided to school communities statewide at no cost. To participate contact: email@example.com
