The Garden in my Mind by Stephanie McCumbee and Lisa M. Griffin
Maci and Trey love to have a good time, but sometimes get in trouble. Their teacher reminds them that “flowers fade every time a bad choice is made.” This causes Maci and Trey to think about their actions and the idea of a “garden growing in their head” shows the importance of making positive choices.

What does #LiveInsideOut mean?
We focus on helping kids develop the character skills (i.e. social and emotional skills) necessary to thrive in their lives, schools, and later in jobs and community, which is the “inside piece”. The “outside” part is being connected to the community through volunteerism. All of our programs combine these two elements!
Thank you to our Annual Presenting Partners!
The Inside Out Club is positively impacting more than 3,000 children and their families each year.
Thank you to the Naperville SECA Fund for supporting our weekend events this year!
