Glowmundo offers the I Glow curriculum, which is research-based, and focuses on building social-emotional and mindfulness skills in 5-12 year old children. Through the program children learn to become aware of and manage their emotions, to use positive coping strategies, to seek support, cooperate with others, develop positive inner dialogue and have an optimistic view of life. The program results in lower levels of stress and hopelessness, bullying prevention, and stronger communities. The curriculum incorporates experiences with art, storytelling, music, movement, coping techniques, guided imagery and cooperative games.
When a school decides to bring the Glowmundo program to their school, it becomes a community effort supported by Glowmundo through training, consulting, curriculum, media and props. These products and services are offered to teachers, parents, staff and administration, and the children. Everybody learns the Glow language and leads by example on behalf of the children.
