GirlKind Project® SEL Program

This 12-session social emotional learning (SEL) program was launched in 2017, in collaboration with Florida International University’s Education Effect. It was designed to empower girls, 8-14 years of age, to intentionally cultivate happiness and create a more compassionate world. Each topic-specific session promotes core competencies for SEL, using a positive and growth mindset approach. “SEL is the process through which all young people and adults acquire and apply the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to develop healthy identities, manage emotions and achieve personal and collective goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain supportive relationships, and make responsible and caring decisions.” (CASEL) The GirlKind Project® SEL Program curriculum is designed to be used by caring professionals in schools and other educational settings. For information about curriculum licensing opportunities, please email us at Licensing fee will be waived for Title 1 schools.

Parent Resources

Based on the GirlKind Project® original curriculum, these free resources have been designed to be
used by caring adults with their children, at home, to cultivate kindness and joy. We developed these resources in collaboration with UCLA Bedari Kindness Institute, as part of a YouTube Kids initiative, Kindness is Contagious.

“Door to Kindness” Events

During these GirlKind Project® signature community events, we invite the community to come together to promote kindness, through the creation of a collaborative and interactive artwork. Using a recycled door as canvas, we ask participants to reflect on their individual view of kindness, with the goal of bringing awareness and communicating kindness through art. Email us at for details on how to bring this free event to your site.
