WHAT IS A REBEL HUMAN?

A Rebel Human is someone with the strength and clarity of purpose to challenge the status quo in defense of a better future. Someone who can do the hard thing when it’s the right thing. 

 

There are countless examples of doing the hard thing when it’s the right thing. It can be as simple as following through with a commitment, to as challenging as speaking your truth in a roomful of naysayers or standing up in defense of another at the expense of your own comfort and privilege. Regardless of the specific “thing,” doing the hard thing when it’s the right thing is, by definition, hard. It takes resilience, clarity, and the capacity to see beyond oneself. It is through these everyday acts of rebellion that one begins to construct a life of meaning and purpose, a life that is bold and kind, a life of which you can be proud.

Rebel Human was founded by Jenny Arrington and Tait Medina, Ph.D.

WHAT IS REBEL HUMAN TRAINING FOR SCHOOLS?

Rebel Human for Schools provides a robust, vetted, and comprehensive WELLNESS program for students grades 6-12. 

 

Designed by experts in the field, Rebel Human for Schools uses movement, meditation, and creative expression to develop the core competencies of a rebel human: resilience, equanimity, and the ability to see beyond oneself (see our FAQs for more on our core competencies). Movement strengthens the nervous system, building resilience in the body that translates to resilience in our lives. Meditation actively trains the brain to process and navigate difficult emotions with equanimity and clarity. Creative expression allows a reimagining of a better world for ourself and others while actively connecting us with our values and greater purpose.

 

Rebel Human for Schools is a complete approach to wellness that uses fitness, breath work, dance, meditation, yoga, body awareness, and creative workshops to help students cultivate grit, boost physical fitness, process challenging emotions, find clarity, understand their values, and connect with their purpose.

The world needs more rebel humans.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Every week, a new set of 5-8 videos are uploaded to your school’s curated site. Teacher’s are provided a TEACHER’S GUIDE so that the video classes can be easily integrated into the curriculum. The Teacher’s Guide also provides tailored discussion/essay questions for science, English, and history teachers. The videos can be accessed at any time by students and teachers so the learning can be asynchronous or synchronous. For example, teachers can assign the videos with the corresponding questions to be completed by their students on their own time, or teachers can share their screen during class, using the questions for group discussion and sharing.

WHY DOES YOUR SCHOOL NEED THIS?

Schools need access to a comprehensive wellness platform that empowers their students to work with and understand their emotions, manage their stress and anxiety, strengthen their resilience, build equanimity, and navigate these uncertain times​.

Wellness and social-emotional support is an URGENT need. But, overworked teachers and staff, overstretched budgets, and dwindling resources combine to make the delivery of wellness programing difficult. Teachers are looking for new, fresh content that can be integrated into their curriculum, but only have access to poorly produced and unvetted YouTube videos. Many schools do not have a Wellness Director to spearhead these efforts. Or if they do, this person is likely doing several jobs and unable to give this the focus it needs.

 

Rebel Human for Schools is here to fill that gap, providing a robust, vetted, comprehensive program that addresses students' social, emotional, and physical wellbeing. Our bite-sized and fun video modules help students develop skills and resources in resilience and equanimity, and our diverse teachers "meet students where they are" while sparking creativity, inspiring exploration, and encouraging self-actualization. Rebel Human for Schools is a complete approach to wellness.
