Quiet Schools Network

A Revolutionary Ambassador Program

Our Mission

Our mission is to create Quiet Schools, which are characterized by an inclusive culture in which everyone is recognized for their potential to learn and lead in authentic ways.

We partner with schools to train Quiet Ambassadors to serve as experts in introversion/extroversion and work with their colleagues to:

  • Enhance engagement, creativity and kindness.
  • Foster the ability to communicate with presence and compassion.
  • Tap into the power of quiet leadership.  

Quiet Ambassador Program

Our yearlong comprehensive training and support of one or more Quiet Ambassadors from your school includes in-person and online workshops, individual and team coaching sessions, and a treasure trove of online resources for the entire community.

Susan Cain, whose work has been deemed by educators as “salient, timely, and crucial,” typically kicks off each Quiet Schools Institute with a keynote about the Quiet Revolution in education, which is followed by a multiple-day design thinking workshop that promises to be engaging and enlightening.

…and Membership in Quiet Schools Network

When schools partner with Quiet Revolution through the Ambassador Program, they become part of a national school community dedicated to collective innovation and the sharing of best practices. Network benefits include a monthly newsletter, a yearly student magazine, consulting services offered by our Quiet Revolution team, and measurement tools for year-end assessments.
