Society is faced with the twin epidemics of social isolation and ever-declining behavioral standards. There is an urgent need and responsibility to instill the universal values of compassion, empathy and inclusion in our children.
Today the majority of youth development occurs outside the home; at school, and during recreational and social activities, including social media interactions. These environments inherently contain the risk of significant negative influences.
Wingman is a unique youth-led social and emotional learning program designed to embed lasting positive qualities in participants, building stronger and more resilient communities. Social and emotional learning programs, like Wingman, have been shown to have an impact on academic performance.
Wingman is available for schools grades K-12, dance and performing arts studios, cheer and sports. Since its launch in 2015, more than 300 organizations in four countries have adopted Wingman to transform their communities.
