Above the Ashes of Violence, "Choose Love"

The Jesse Lewis Choose Love will be launching the Choose Love Enrichment Pilot Program just in time for the start of a new school year!

The Choose Love Enrichment Program is a social and emotional (SEL) classroom program teaching children how to choose love in any circumstance. The program focuses on four important character values – courage, gratitude, forgiveness and compassion – which cultivates optimism, resilience and personal responsibility.

This program was created by Educators for Educators which means we were thinking of you when we developed it, making sure that the program is educator and student friendly.

The Enrichment Pilot created a program that will have a positive impact on you, your students, and the overall classroom climate as it teaches the traits and skills that promote self-confidence, resiliency, optimism, pro-social behavior, healthy connections, and responsible decision-making.

The Jesse Lewis Choose Love Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization with a commitment to reach students, educators and individuals, nationally and internationally, and provide them with a simple, yet profound formula for choosing love.

On the morning of December 14, 2012, on the way to school, JesseJesse Lewis - Nurture, Healing, Love McCord Lewis stopped to write “I love you” in the frost on his mother’s car. Just hours later, Jesse was senselessly murdered in his first grade classroom. He was one of the 26 victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. Days prior to the tragedy, on the kitchen chalkboard at home Jesse had written a prophetic message, ‘Nurturing, Healing, Love’.

‘Nuturing, Healing, Love’

These three words have become the foundation of the Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement and have evolved into a formula that is so simple, yet so profound that it has inspired people all over the world to not only choose love, but become part of the mission to help others do the same.
