LYFE PROGRAM

LEADING YOUTH FOR EMPOWERMENT
INTRODUCING OUR LYFE PROGRAM

Our LYFE program empowers students by building positive and strong relationships, nurturing their developmental needs, and guiding them to realize and grow their own strengths through social and emotional learning activities.

LYFE PROGRAM ACTIVITIES

LYFE Programs are based on-site at your child’s school and feature a continuation of the social and emotional learning that forms the basis of all public school curriculum in the Chula Vista district.

  • Mindful Minute
    Your child will learn to breathe, reset, and develop a mindfulness practice that has been found to increase optimism and happiness in the classroom, decrease bullying and aggression, increase compassion and empathy, and improve conflict resolution skills.
  • Brain Waves Students will play with a purpose through sensory stimulation. Each child will be encouraged to explore touch, sight, smell, taste in the classroom.
  • Homework Support
    Your child will have a dedicated space for homework, a structured homework routine, and assistance with homework.
  • Leader in Me
    Your child will take part in leadership activities — such as community service — to help build confidence and learn first-hand the rewards of giving to others.
  • LYFE Long Movements
    Your child will learn functional movements that can benefit both the mind and body. These fun activities will incorporate balance, flexibility, and strength to develop habits that will last a lifetime.
  • Teamwork Activity
    Teamwork-focused activities will provide an opportunity for children to work on skills such as trust, communication, problem solving, and decision making.
  • STEAM Activity
    Students will practice critical thinking, and problem solving, and collaboration with others through fun, interactive Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM) activities.
  • Random Acts of Kindness
    Your child will learn to foster kindness on a daily basis through activities that encourage happy, well-rounded individuals who care for others.
