A Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement Initiative
The Choose Love Awareness Month brings attention to our Choose Love message and the importance of teaching children core competencies and skills, beyond academics, that can help them thrive physically, mentally and emotionally. These skills are not just for students either! We need them as adults, as well.
Our programs are all based on the simple but powerful Choose Love Formula (Courage + Gratitude + Forgiveness + Compassion-in-Action = Choosing Love). When students have the Choose Love Enrichment Program™ as part of their instruction, you can expect them to have:
- Academic Success
- Positive Social Behavior
- Fewer Conduct Problems
- Less Emotional Distress
The Choose Love Awareness Month Celebrates the Choose Love Formula:
Each week in February will focus on a pillar of the formula and tips on how to incorporate the Choose Love Formula into daily life will be posted on the Choose Love social media channels including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Linked-In. This is a call-to-action for every person to Be Part of the Solution and help raise awareness by following the Choose Love social media accounts and sharing with their networks.
Throughout February learn and practice the Choose Love Formula and help us spread Awareness of the Choose Love Movement. Scroll to learn more on the different ways you can be a part of this initiative!
