We believe intercultural exchanges are key to unlocking SEL competencies.
As Peace Corps Volunteers, we experienced deep immersion in a culture not our own. Our personal growth during this time -- self-awareness, social-awareness, relationship skills, etc. -- was profound.
Using VR, we aim to bring intercultural exchanges right into the classroom to drive an unprecedented SEL curriculum.
The Kinful SEL curriculum is designed to achieve the following pro-academic and pro-social behaviors*:
9+ years founding, directing, and scaling social justice programs, including gender equality in West Africa; juvenile justice in Baltimore; and educational equity models in NYC.
11+ years designing, teaching, and training curricular models targeting social justice and cultural democracy through integration of the arts and design thinking in West Africa and Denton, Austin, and Dallas, Texas.
