Jesse Lewis Choose Love Foundation

 

“Although we can’t always choose what happens to us, we can always choose how to respond. Children can learn to choose a loving thought over an angry one. When a child realizes that they have the power to positively impact themselves as well as those around them, it is empowering and perpetuates their positive actions and interactions.” 

–Scarlett Lewis, Founder of the Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement and Jesse’s mother

This Fall we plan on launching a Choose Love YouTube channel with short informational videos to inspire and support educators!

There are so many incredible stories from teachers and counselors about how they implement social and emotional learning in their classrooms, stay focused, and elevate their classroom climate. We will be sharing these and also interviewing experts on Positive Touch, Tapping, Mindfulness, Trauma Informed Treatment and more! All as it relates to the classroom and for the benefit of our educators and students.

SHARE YOUR STORY. If you have a story or something that you do that you feel is unique and beneficial, please share it with us! We would love to credit you and continue to be a resource for sharing important information on how to help each other and our children.

Choose Love Enrichment Pilot Program

We are thrilled to announce that we will be launching the Choose Love Enrichment Pilot Program just in time for the start of a new school year! 

The Choose Love Enrichment Program is a social and emotional (SEL) classroom program teaching children how to choose love in any circumstance. The program focuses on four important character values – courage, gratitude, forgiveness and compassion – which cultivates optimism, resilience and personal responsibility.

This program was created by Educators for Educators which means we were thinking of you when we developed it, making sure that the program is educator and student friendly.

We created a program that will have a positive impact on you, your students, and the overall classroom climate as it teaches the traits and skills that promote self-confidence, resiliency, optimism, pro-social behavior, healthy connections, and responsible decision-making.

Learn more and pre-register.

On the morning of December 14th, 2012, Jesse McCord Lewis walked out of his house and down the driveway towards his father who was waiting to drive him to school. Along the way, Jesse stopped to write a message with his finger in the frost on his mother’s car: “I love you.” Just hours later, Jesse was gone. He was one of the 26 victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings in Newtown, Connecticut.

Days prior to the tragedy, Jesse wrote three words on his chalkboard at home: “Nurturing. Healing. Love.” We understand these final words as a calling from Jesse that says, ‘I have something for you to do for us. That’s to consciously change an angry thought into a loving one’ because it is a choice.”

The Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement collaborates with professional educators to bring lasting meaning to Jesse’s murder by developing school-based educational programs to change our current culture of violence to one of safety, peace and love for everyone in our world.

This is the single guiding principle, the sole purpose and motto of our work: Teaching others to Choose Love.
