Roots Of Empathy
Roots Of Empathy

Roots of Empathy is an evidence-based program that has shown dramatic effect in reducing levels of aggression among school children while raising social and emotional competence and increasing empathy. The program reaches elementary children from Kindergraten to Grade 8. 

Roots of Empathy's mission is to build caring, peaceful, and civil societies through the development of empathy in children and adults. The focus of Roots of Empathy in the long term is to build capacity of the next generation for responsible citizenship and responsive parenting. At the heart of the program is a neighbourhood infant and parent who visit the class every three weeks, for the Family Visit, over the school year.
