Two by Two® Character Development is a nonprofit organization committed to developing citizens of strong character who care for, respect, and appreciate people, animals, and the environment.
Our programming utilizes a unique three-fold approach with people, animals, and the environment to appeal to children's heads, hands and HEART!
The Two by Two® Kindhearted Kids Make a Difference Program is a year-long adventure for after-school programs in which KINDNESS will bloom everywhere. Daily social emotional learning lessons (30-40 minutes), which are engaging, active, and literature based, build upon the development of the following core values - Fairness, Kindness, Respect, Responsibility, Empathy, Cooperation, Perseverance, and Citizenship. Children connect to animal puppets that serve as mascots and cheerleaders, which capture their hearts and cheer them on this character journey!
This is only one program that Two by Two® offers that can fit into your before or after-school setting! Available programs also include:
Kindhearted Kids is our staple program, which includes 5 cross-curricular, hands-on lessons that incorporate writing, mathematics, science, social studies, guidance, music, and art with character education as the main focus. Children put the core values of Kindness, Respect, Responsibility, and Empathy into action while caring for a stuffed dog or cat and journal about their caring behavior.
