LVI's educational curriculum is built as a means to combat the various social and emotional issues plaguing the youth of today's time. Bullying, substance abuse, peer pressure, and suicide are just a few of the many issues that teens and tweens are dealing with on an everyday basis. While there are programs developed as anti-bullying, anti-drug, and so forth – these programs only deal with the problem once it becomes a problem. LVI acts to prevent such issues from materializing.
Through our vast and in depth research, LVI has found that these social issues stem from a lack of confidence and self worth. Based on scientific evidence Dr. Mark Holder and other leading specialists in his area, it is proven that by teaching empathy and practicing kindness, ones self-esteem naturally increases. Further, a child with increased self-worth will be less likely to fall prey to issues such as peer pressure, bullying, substance abuse and the like. LVI seeks to empower children and the future of tomorrow by showing them that they are powerful beings with the ability to effect change and contribute positively to society. Therefore LVI has adopted a program focused around Social Emotional Learning
LVI’s educational program aims to cultivate compassion in children through an intensive and integrated in-school curriculum aimed at students from 4th-12th grade.The ten-month program, tailored specifically to the learning needs of each particular age group involved, will center on interactive sessions and buzz groups.
