The Choose Love Programs are no cost, lifespan, next-generation social and emotional learning programs. It teaches children and adults how to choose love in any circumstance and helps them become connected, resilient, and empowered individuals. These skills, tools and attitudes have been proven through decades of scientific research to be the best way to ensure a healthy, meaningful and purpose-filled life. Choose Love programs are in all 50 states and have been downloaded in 90 countries. This movement to choose love has spread by word of mouth and is indicative of the need for this type of learning and our ‘Choose Love’ message.
Its signature program, the Choose Love Enrichment Program™, is an Infant, Toddler, and Pre-K through 12th grade curriculum teaching children core competencies and skills, beyond academics, that can help them thrive physically, mentally and emotionally.
