restorED: Campus Well-Being Initiatives
OutLoud partners with schools and universities to create restorative environments and experiences that prioritize the well-being of teachers and students.
Our goal is to revolutionize schools from the inside out, combatting student and teacher burnout and disillusionment by normalizing self-care and holistic well-being.
Our immersive space design transforms teacher lounges, quiet rooms, and underutilized campus areas into multipurpose community spaces that promote self-regulation, healing and restoration. We use multi-surface projections, biometric feedback tools, and programmed meditation sequences to create spaces of refuge on campus for teachers and students.
Voyager I: Mobile Well-Being Studio
Voyager I is a school bus that has been completely transformed into a well-being studio. This mobile classroom travels to campuses across the DFW area, providing guided well-being work with one of our facilitators and automated meditation sequences and light therapy. Voyager I is utilized by students in elementary through high school as a tool to teach mindfulness skills and reduce toxic stress.
OutLoud designs and facilitates well-being cohorts for educators in the DFW area. The cohorts are focused groups of teachers and administrators that meet monthly to participate in curated experiences that are designed to address different areas of personal well-being. Their journey culminates with an out-of-state retreat where they are immersed in nature, build community and engage in restorative practices and self-reflection.

Partnering with OutLoud at Uplift is a giant step towards (re)imagining what restorative environments look and feel like in schools for the people who need it and deserve it most: educators.
