Roots of Empathy's Mission:
"Roots of Empathy’s mission is to build caring, peaceful, and civil societies through the development of empathy in children and adults."
Roots of Empathy is an innovative classroom-based program that aims to reduce aggression through the fostering of empathy and emotional literacy. A local mom and or dad will visit the elementary school classroom once a month with their baby. The Roots of Empathy Program Instructor facilitates the program curriculum, acitivities and partners with the school.
