A few words from our community...
" We have seen the positive impact START makes in developing essential leadership skills while building social and emotional capacity and connection. We have used START to unite our parents, teachers, and students with a common leadership language and process to navigate their lives effectively."
Leadership Director, The Haverford School
"Over the past few years we have noticed a declining trend in student preparedness, initiative, and self-direction. But in just a few weeks using the START approach in our classroom, all are on the rise. The positive shift in student engagement and focus along with their ability to work independently has been remarkable."
5th Grade Teacher, Colonial School
"If the highly stressed students I see had gone through this program, they wouldn't be in my office. They would have developed better tools, become more resilient, and have a better perspective on life.”
Parent and Psychiatrist, Ivy League College
