Spirituality for Kids International Inc. (SFK) is a 501(c)(3) educational non-profit organization founded in 2001, that develops online spiritual social emotional learning (SSEL) programs for kids, based on engaging videos, animations, games, art activities, journaling and more. By fostering universal spiritual intelligence in addition to the core competencies of SEL, children have been shown to grow into more balanced, happy and responsible individuals and citizens of the world.
Our award-winning video-centric curriculum is comprised of two consecutive courses, geared for children ages 8-12: Winning in the Game of Life™ and Exploring the Journey of Life™. The courses helps kids develop inner strength, recognize their potential, overcome challenges, develop a sense of purpose in life, and grow their belief in themselves.
The program is available online for at-home use, and on DVD and printed workbooks for classroom or professional use. Spirituality for Kids’ charitable arm empowers volunteers around the world to teach group classes to children in foster homes, prisons, hospitals, afterschool programs, and in schools and organizations in underprivileged areas (see locations here).
We believe every child in the world, regardless of their background or faith, should have access to spiritual social emotional education early in life so they can make better life choices for themselves and the world around them.
Our mission is to develop more programs, translate them into more languages and bring Spirituality for Kids’ tools to as many children as possible around the world, in order to help them manage life’s challenges and make better decisions and in so doing, change the course of their lives and benefit future generations.
Starting in 2001, SFK classes were taught in schools and community-based organizations in major cities in the US. In 2007, after an outcome study by RAND Corporation confirmed that Spirituality for Kids programs were having a positive impact on children’s behavior, the program expanded to seven countries in eight different languages.
In 2012, the SFK program moved to an online model, so that any child(ren) and adult(s) can do the program together, at home or in classroom settings.
