Wishbeads bracelets are more than inspirational jewelry. A Wishbeads® Workshop helps students articulate their wishes and goals and create a physical, visible reminder they can wear every day. These goals might relate to going to college, making the varsity swim team, building a better relationship with their parents, or finding a friend group that really supports them.
Teens particularly need support and guidance during this tough season of life - Wishbeads is one tool that can help them stay on track and committed to their goals and wishes.
Each student will receive:
It’s a daily reminder to students to stay focused on their wishes, dreams, and goals. In a time of constant distraction, social media comparison, low self-esteem and high self-doubt, teens in particular benefit from the support and reminders they can get from their Wishbeads.
Wishbeads workshops have been enjoyed by hundreds of teens around the country, including experiences with GEM (The Girls Empowerment) in Baltimore, MD, GALS (The Girls Athletic Leadership School) in Panorama City, CA, and at PS1: Pluralistic School One in Santa Monica, CA.
"Wishbeads is an amazing activity, especially for the girls we work with. It helps connect them to who they are and where they want to go. Through the experience, they can picture themselves as confident, self sufficient, independent young women. When they wear their bracelet, they have a constant reminder."
– Debbi Weinberg, Founder, GEM (Girls' Empowerment Mission)
