Compassion Summit

Thursday, March 28, 2019

The Compassion Summit was held for the third consecutive year at ACS from March 14 - 16. While the weather was uncooperative, the outcomes were incredible. With 15 schools from the Middle East participating, including 2 local Jordanian schools -- Ahliyyah/Bishops and Jubilee -- over 100 students gathered together for two days of keynote speakers, workshops, and most importantly, time with mentors and coaches to create a viable, change-promoting Action Plan to take back to their respective schools. Always a humbling experience, the Compassion Summit planning team would like to express gratitude to partner schools ACS Abu Dhabi, Riffa Views International School, and AIS-Riyadh for being collaborative and inspirational in every sense of the word. Great work was done at the Summit, and great work continues to be done in the spirit of compassionate action and leadership with our youth.
