School SEL Program

What We Believe:

We believe a better and nicer world is possible. Choose To Be Nice is committed to improving the way we interact with one another in our schools, on the playground, in the hallways and in the classrooms. Our SEL school programs focus on nine values that are reinforced throughout the school year. The positive effect of the CTBN school program extends from school to home and to the greater community as an impactful social movement.

What We Offer:

The Choose To Be Nice School Program offers administrators and educators a turn-key SEL (social and emotional learning) program to incorporate learning and changed and/or improved behaviors starting in schools. Our program is comprehensive, yet flexible, so educators can easily substitute books, lessons and activities.
