Why Teens Aren't Happy and How to Cultivate Happiness in Our Schools.



This talk will explore the manifold reasons our teens are struggling so mightily with anxiety, depression, and thoughts of suicide. We will examine the factors that result in such troubled teens and the way an active happiness club can cultivate happier and healthier students. We will share the incredible changes in culture and morale the 40% Club has made in our school community and where we are going in the future.

Ron DiBona is a dynamic, passionate English teacher who inspires students through philosophy and humor to achieve and dream. Teaching, for him, provides a most authentic state of "flow". He is also the founder of the 40% Club at Franklin High School, which actively promotes happiness through student actions of kindness, gratitude, and frivolity.
Pam Garramone,M.Ed. Is a Positive Psychology Speaker and Life Coach and the founder of Thrive Now Boston.

Happiness Club

Hartford Happiness Club

The time has come to spread happiness in Hartford Ct! I recently graduated with certification in Positive Psychology from the Wholebeing Institute taught by Tal Ben Shahar. I am excited to share and continue to grow as a lifelong learner giving my life meaning and purpose. My studies include a Masters of Arts in Experiential Health and Healing from the Graduate Institute in 2008. Dr. Bernie Siegel was my mentor who put me on a path to learn, grow and share. Bernie taught me how to take life and all it is complexities and make it simple. Through Bernie, I met founder of the Happiness Club Lionel Ketchian at a workshop.

It was at this point where I was introduced to The Happiness Clubs. I never looked back. Lionel was put on this earth to plant seeds of happiness around the world. I am humbled to have Lionel in my life and be part of something larger than life.
