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

Choosing Love After Sandy Hook – Scarlett Lewis Featured on KNWA in Arkansas

Scarlett Lewis was recently featured on KNWA during her trip to Arkansas while launching the Choose Love Enrichment Program at Washington Elementary School in Fayetteville.

Lewis created the Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement. It’s a program based on social and emotional learning, instead of violence.

“There have been decades of scientific research on social emotional learning and we know that it is the most pro-active and preventative mental health initiative that we have putting this in schools is really a pro-active approach,” Lewis said. “We are really telling kids here is what they can’t do to feel good but we are not giving them a positive option.”

Watch Now.

All educators can begin to use this program now along with our pilot schools although the official global launch will be in 2017. Learn more and register


Jesse Lewis Choose Love Enrichment Program PilotThe 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.

jesse-thumbnailJesse Lewis Choose Love Movement

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.
