What is the Core Life Program?
Drawing on research from the Search Institute’s Developmental Assets® framework, Core Life was created to empower parents, teachers, and youth leaders in multiple settings to help youth succeed in life. Core Life materials and training are available to help adults who teach children the personal qualities and character attributes that will contribute to their successful navigation in life. When children learn how to collaborate and cooperate, listen and respond appropriately, and respect the people and world around them, it contributes to improved academic performance and positive behaviors. In fact, it has demonstrated that it reduces maladaptive student behaviors and improves reading scores among low-level readers.
