Program Goal

Social-emotional learning has become an important topic today. Research indicates students with strong cognitive regulation, emotional processes, and interpersonal skills have better academic, interpersonal, and mental health outcomes. When students are able to sustain their attention, control their emotions, navigate relationships with peers and adults, and persevere in challenging situations, they are able to focus their attention on learning and classrooms function more smoothly.

As physical fitness is important to our overall longevity, so is social-emotional fitness (or practicing empathy). Children of the Digital Age have become a little desensitized, with a general conclusion and consensus among researchers showing a decline in interpersonal skills (specifically empathy). However, when forced to substitute “face time” with screen-time, empathy returns in days! Our monthly peer-led activities and visual messages encourage students to unplug and find ways to get involved in their school and/or community.

As Aristotle stated back in 322 B.C. “Educating the Mind without educating the heart, is no education at all”. With the support of passionate school administrators, together we can equip students with an education that involves both heart and mind – a true recipe for success that will carry them throughout their lives!

Video-Based Program Engages Students

Be THE Voice is centered around short videos that feature celebrities, athletes, and students sharing personal stories or advice to empower the normally silent bystander to impact change.  60% of students are visual learners, making our visual format highly effective with many students replicating what they viewed within minutes!
