Building Better Futures Together
stronger hearts & minds, one action at a time
HOW IT BEGAN
they Discovered a Solution
Blaze was created from a father’s love for his son who was struggling.
All the classic signs – grades were slipping, he was acting out, and spending way too much time playing video games.
The father was also struggling – working long hours at a stressful job left him mentally drained at the end of the day.
A disconnect was building between father and son.

THE HEAD AND THE HEART
What exactly is the research telling us?
Young people need a more meaningful education.
Universally declared across each major branch of science – natural, social and formal – it has become indesputable that young people require a more dynamic, whole-human approach to their educational experience.
Harvard, CASEL, OECD and Allstate are just a few of the more notable organizations invested in the social and emotional development of our youth.
"Social emotional competence is a greater predictor of lifelong success than academic grades. In fact, students who score high on social skills are four times more likely to complete college."
