What is Wellbeing?

  • The ability to be present, aware and capable to build healthy relationships with yourself and with those around you.
  • The process of developing an internal resource base in order to manage the situations that appear in life.

Areas for action:


Wellbeing intervention model

We believe that when adults change, children change. Working with adults is the effort that will yield the greatest impact on a long term in education.

The transformation process we use is systemic, and it encompasses all adults in the school’s community: faculty, staff, parents. It takes place gradually, and it has various levels of intervention, so that each group in the community can access the transformation process: on one hand, work will be done with the school leadership team, which needs to assume ownership for the need to support the process of change, and which needs to send a positive message to the faculty and to the staff. The faculty and staff become the internal engine driving change, something which will be reflected when working with the community of parents. The effect of the process is a transformation of the entire community of adults, of everyone involved in the life and in the process of learning and development of the children.

Each member of the community is involved in the process, on different intervention levels - an individual level, a family, or a group level, depending on the specific needs identified in the 10 areas of intervention.

Each of us is searching for their own wellbeing, and in Transylvania College you get to talk about your wellbeing on a spiritual level, you end up reflecting. In my previous work place, the idea of having a discussion with someone about my wellbeing, about how I feel, or if I am OK, was absolutely out of the question. And this matters. You go to work with a different kind of energy. Some of the questions asked most often in Transylvania College are: “Are you OK? How are you feeling?

Why does it work?

Change comes from within

Wellbeing Institute can provide support to school directors, and to people who have managing responsibilities in schools - deputy directors, heads of committees, members of administrative councils.

Measurable results

  1. Solution-oriented attitude. Objective setting and progress monitoring.

  2. Research-based actions.

  3. Students’ transformation is obtained firstly through the development of adults’ abilities, who model desirable behaviors and attitudes.

The entire community

The process involves collaboration between students, teachers, parents, and the entire school staff. An integrated approach over the entire implementation period, and in all action areas.

The whole person

Schools contribute to the development of the whole person: mind, body, spirit, and heart.

Together with our partners, we offer wellbeing programs, available both online and on-site (in schools).
