HELPING OUR VALUED EDUCATORS MAKE EDUCATION FUN!
All Adults Are Educators
The I AM Program is a simple reminder that within each child lies the power of change.
By awakening values that support self-appreciation, acceptance and love we work toward a rewarding and peaceful future for all.
By doing what we can to bring peace to our school playgrounds we make a conscious choice for peace in the playing fields of society.
I AM !
The I AM Program has received numerous endorsements from satisfied clients!
The most affective Anti-Bullying strategy is emotional awareness.
An emotionally aware child has higher self-esteem and is able to respond consciously and effectively rather than react indiscriminately.
The I AM Program is a non-denominational approach to reducing school violence by helping children to develop emotional intelligence.
Strengthening the qualities for personal growth within children will provide options for peaceful response to life circumstance thus creating a successful and happy future.
The I AM Workshops use the arts as a universal, joyful and effective method for delivering the message of personal responsibility, conscious choice and self-esteem to children.
Our intention is to introduce a comprehensive 'self-awareness program' into the education system. By doing so the likely-hood of a generation of 'healthy thinking' is increased.
When we increase the rate of healthy thinking we inadvertantly increase the rate of evolutionary and innovative solutions. We also increase general harmony making for a less volatile social state.
