Art, Service projects, theatre, music, games, scavenger hunts, conversation & ethics. That is right – Ethics!

(Video from 2020)

Our Ethics for Children program offers a fun, safe, interactive learning environment for kids to explore important topics that affect their lives, fostering empathy and a deeper understanding of self and others. We use art, theatre, games, stories, music, discussion, reflection, and action to empower students to make a difference in their world.

Our program does not impose a fixed set of values or beliefs. Rather our goal is to provide a forum where students can identify their own values, expand their knowledge and gain skills essential to developing and following their own moral compass and voice.

This fall we are offering both in-person and hybrid programs. Our in-person classes will be held on Sundays at our iconic BSEC building while our hybrid classes will meet virtually on Mondays. Both groups will have the opportunity to come together to put ethics into action with monthly in-person service projects.

Each class will feature one of the 5 major principles of our program: Care for the self, family, community, earth, and world. As the program progresses, we will customize the curriculum guided by student interest. Previous lessons have included topics such as rising sea levels, ableism, animal welfare, educational access & emotional self-care. Service activities will be likewise influenced by student passion.

Not sure if this program will be a good fit for your learner? We encourage you to contact us by clicking here with questions or to arrange a virtual visit to a class.

In-Person Classes are held on Sundays 11:00 – 12:30

Virtual Classes are held via Zoom on Mondays 4:00 – 5:00
