Know Thyself™ is a two-semester manners, respect, character development, and creative expression program for middle and high school students.
Know Thyself™ is presently based in nine Milwaukee Public Schools: Craig Montessori School, 53rd St. School, Gaenslen School, O.W. Holmes School, Hopkins Lloyd School, Gwen Jackson School, Milwaukee High School of the Arts, Ronald Reagan High School, and Milwaukee School of Career and Technical Education.
In addition, Know Thyself™ participates in the Pathways to College program at Wisconsin Lutheran College. Each week, Know Thyself™ groups meet with a facilitator who partners with Learners Bureau speakers to conduct workshops on topics such as Presenting Your Best Self, Conflict Resolution, and Total Health: The Mind/Body Connection.
Throughout the year, area artists, poets, writers, and photographers engage students in the creative process. The students also attend numerous cultural events throughout the region.
In Spring, the program culminates in the Museum of Self® exhibit, a display of the students’ artistic work at the Know Thyself™ Annual Banquet.
