What is the role of POP-UP Partners?

Companies, nonprofits, agencies who make one or more of the following commitments:

Strengthen your community by holding one or many POP-UP Festivals as a corporate social responsibility initiative (engage employee volunteers to celebrate your company’s families, and/or for families in your community)

Amplify the message by bringing awareness of POP-UP Festivals to 1000s more people (eg join our social media efforts, share POP-UP Festival resources as point-of-sale or other places with lots of people, recruit your members to hold festivals)

Support the initiative with financial sponsorship to bring POP-UP Festival resources to communities that can not otherwise participate (while the event is free and volunteer driven, even the cost of printing materials is a burden in many places in the world)

If any/all of these opportunities fit your organization/company/agency, please fill in the form above

Hosted by the global EQ org

Six Seconds is the world’s leading nonprofit org for emotional intelligence (EQ); established in 1997, our tools and methods are used in 200+ countries.

Emotional intelligence (being smarter with feelings) is a learnable skill that makes life better. At work, at home, at school and in the community, these skills are the missing link.

Six Seconds is a global nonprofit working to support ALL people to grow and practice emotional intelligence.

We think the world would be a better place if a billion people were practicing the skills of emotional intelligence (EQ). So, we research and share scientific, global, transformational tools & methods to support that goal.
