Our next Toronto training is in October 2019.
Roots of Empathy is a program for elementary school children. Its aim is to increase empathy - the ability to understand how another person feels and to feel with them. The program is proven to reduce aggression and increase caring, sharing, kindness. Roots of Empathy is in multiple countries and has reached almost one million children.
Volunteer Instructors are trained to deliver all aspects of the Roots of Empathy program to children in the classroom. At the heart of the program is a neighbourhood infant and parent who visit the class every three weeks, for the family visit, over the school year. The Roots of Empathy Instructor also visits the week before and the week after each family visit (pre and post visits) to prepare and reinforce teachings using a specialized lesson plan for each visit.
