Choose Love Movement
A community-led movement offering free social and emotional learning
Choose Love is a community-led movement offering free social and emotional learning (SEL) to help people thoughtfully respond to any situation, circumstance, or interaction.
We offer lifespan learning tailored for any age from toddlers through adulthood. At the core of it all is a simple daily formula to help you learn and practice essential lifeskills for improving the world around you.
Two million people across 95 countries have already decided to choose love.
Choose Love Movement is made possible by a global network of team members and advisors.
The origin of Choose Love Movement is a powerful story about tragedy to transformation.
Choose Love Movement began in schools but has now expanded to be tailored for home, for work, and for community. We’re seeing sports teams use Choose Love to teach leadership. We’re seeing prisons use it for restoration. And even those in the military and their families are using it to ease anxiety and strengthen relationships.
Since 2013, we have been on a mission to create safer schools and a safer world by teaching people how to use nurturing, healing love in any circumstance. Practicing social and emotional learning skills improves culture and cultivates an environment that is welcoming, supportive, compassionate, and safe.
“Nurturing, Healing Love,” are the foundational values for the movement. Their individual meaning form a profound and powerful formula for choosing love:
- Nurturing means loving kindness and gratitude.
- Healing means forgiveness.
- Love is compassion in action.
Since the beginning, Choose Love Movement’s founder, Scarlett Lewis, has spoken to diverse audiences across the U.S. and the world urging everyone to become part of the solution to the issues the world is facing. She has shared principles behind the movement with professionals at events like SXSW EDU, Character.org’s National Forum on Character, ASCD Empower, and Safe and Sound Schools. And she has shared our story and impact with the Today Show, NPR, the New York Times, Fox News, BBC, and many more.
