What does #LiveInsideOut mean?
We are working to build a generation of children and families that strive to “live inside out”. What does that 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!
