Hopeworks provides a positive, healing atmosphere that propels young people to build strong futures and break the cycle of violence and poverty in Camden, New Jersey. With a focus on education, technology, and entrepreneurship, helping young people heal from trauma has been good for Camden and its approach has had a transformative impact in the workplace. Both small and large companies are adopting some of Hopeworks’ techniques — the huddle, safety plans, and systems checks, to name just a few — to use conscious humanity to increase productivity. The Hopeworks Youth Healing Team has trained more than 1,200 professionals in the past year and will share how to integrate some of these transformative practices into the workplace.
