Santoro Education Lifeskills Foundation (SELF) is dedicated to helping kids learn important lessons about character as early in their lives as possible.  Our program is built around the idea that certain life lessons, like resilience and respect, can be taught alongside academic subjects like math and reading. 

At SELF, our singular mission is to help children become their best selves by providing educators with proven, straightforward and FREE resources that help teach valuable life lessons. ALIVE2THRIVE is our comprehensive social and emotional curriculum, offering students, parents, teachers, administrators and mentors the critical resources aimed at helping middle and high school students tackle life’s difficult challenges.

On this site you will find the video lessons that make up the core of the ALIVE2THRIVE curriculum, the centerpiece of the Santoro Foundation. Please visit our Get Connected pages to find guides for how to use the curriculum.
