“While working as a Speech-Language Therapist I became aware that some of my special needs students were experiencing bullying at the elementary school where I previously worked. Having experienced bullying first hand in my own adult life around that same time I thought of Maya Angelou’s quote “the need for change bulldozed a road down the center of my mind” and that was the beginning of Caring and Courageous Kids, where I soon became affectionately called “The Peace Lady” by the children!” ~Dee DiGioia

Dee is empowering children through adults with life-skills on social, emotional, and physical well-being to enjoy a life filled with creating happiness for self and others. The focus of CCKids began at the elementary school level but has been expanded to all ages, and the focus has turned to mindfulness to help our next generation develop the habits and life-skills proven to relieve the pressures that children face in today’s world, along with the many other benefits it can offer. CCKids is challenging families, classrooms, youth groups, and entire communities to join our “Circles of Compassion” and take the Compassion-fit Challenge“. It’s not just about changing children. It’s about changing the mindset of a culture.

Dee is bringing her passion and skills to the Central Coast where she has recently relocated in Los Osos, CA.
