Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Increasingly young people are caught up in a world of social media, looking at everyone's highlight reel and comparing it to their own. They don't know what they're good at, care about, or are interested in, so instead, they have feelings of anxiety and hopelessness. House of Shine helps youth kindergarten through twelfth grade discover who they are, what they care about, and how to lead, so they can confidently make decisions about their future. Decisions can be as small as what group of friends they choose to associate with, the community service they choose to participate in or even the college or university they choose to attend.

Informative handouts, coupled with lively tabletop discussions, coffee, and door prizes assure that you will leave each session with new friends, new ideas, and new swag. These sessions are perfect for you to attend alone, with a friend, officemate, book club, or mother’s day out group.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Through self-awareness based curriculum and programming, House of Shine helps students discover who they are, what they care about, and how to lead.

Using the word SHINE (Strengths, Hobbies, Interests & Irritants, Needs, Experiences) as our framework, we will continue teaching our curriculum in schools, to students kindergarten through twelfth grade. Additionally, we will offer programs, workshops, and camp experiences to youth in the evenings, on weekends, and during the summer. This year, for the first time, we are also starting a podcast and our Executive Director authored a book that students can read to learn the Shine Method on their own.

In addition to serving students, House of Shine also offers programming to women, parents, and teachers so they can support the shine message at school and home.

Our curriculum and programs for students kindergarten through twelfth grade has been developed by the House of Shine team based on Founder and Executive Director, Dr. Claudia Beeny's twenty-five year career in higher education and doctoral work on student engagement. In addition to the content creation, the House of Shine team facilitates the curriculum and programs in schools and community organizations, and trains teachers, counselors, and community leaders on the shine message.

In partnership with the Center for Nonprofit Management, a program logic model and evaluative tool was created for our each program and piece of curriculum to measure learning and program impact.

In our five years as a non-profit organization, House of Shine has served 33,294 clients through 394 programs and classroom visits. As we open our own physical space for House of Shine in 2020, our capacity to reach additional clients through programs and events will greatly increase.

In our first five years a non-profit organization, House of Shine has served 33,294 clients through 394 programs and engaged over 1,100 volunteers in 6,500+ hours of community service.

Through our curriculum and programs, 80% of students are able to name at least four meanings of the SHINE acronym (Strengths, Hobbies, Interests & Irritants, Needs, and Experiences) and 83% of tenth graders were able to identify their Point of Intersection (bringing together of a talent, interest and need they are interested in helping solve).

In the next year, House of Shine will open our first physical location where students can come to discover their shine through an interactive museum, participate in discussions with other students and community members, and engage in workshops that unearth what they care about (things that matter to them). In this space, our clients served and programs offered will grow exponentially and the measurement of our impact on students' self-awareness will be measured longitudinally across program offerings and leadership experiences.
