Our Mission


We empower children/youth and teachers in-at risk environments, locally and internationally, 

by building resilience and self-reliance and inspiring Hope and Peace 

through social & emotional education, and community & leadership development. 


Our evidence-based curriculum, paired with our artistic and therapeutic partnerships 

and aligned with the CASEL (Collaborative for Academic, Social and Emotional Learning) 

nomenclature and practices as well as the TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills)

uses targeted activities to aid in healing trauma, exploring strengths, regaining hope, 

and building supportive communities and a better future


Through mindfulness, healing arts, personal growth, character building and community development, 

we seek to directly address the negative social, emotional, and environmental factors 

that contribute to trauma, disengagement, delinquency, and academic failure in youth.


 Through the Be the Peace - Be the Hope Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) platform, it is possible to give our students 

the tools to achieve better academic success, safer communities and build their sense of self and belonging. 

We truly hope you will support these fantastic programs and help us create positive change that will truly change lives.
