2016 Support Move This World at A Celebration to Benefit New York Kids
You can't learn when you're afraid.
The National Education Association reports that each day 160,000 students miss school for fear of being bullied. But if students could thrive in a healthy school environment, imagine how educators could unlock the potential of every child.
Move This World (MTW) equips educators and students with the tools to address and ritualize their social, mental, and emotional wellbeing in order to create safe and supportive school climates. Our daily Virtual Tools allow educators and students to actively shape their school culture so that effective teaching and learning can occur.
By partnering with MTW, schools decrease suspensions and incident reports, increase attendance, improve educator morale and retention, and provide students with the necessary skills to succeed in college and the workplace.
Partner schools from 2014-2015 reported a total of:
- 60% decrease in student suspensions
- 37% decrease in incidents of conflicts
"I learned how to express my anger in a way that didn't hurt anyone or get me in trouble."-MTW 3rd grader
By supporting MTW you will directly impact 14,500 New York City youth to ritualize and manage their emotional wellbeing so that they are empowered to reach their full potential.
