They love what they do. They’re passionate about youth success. And they’re wholly converted to the WhyTry Program. Here’s what this talented group has to say about what they see in WhyTry:
“I truly feel that the WhyTry Program is the umbrella and/or starting point of a comprehensive education. Aristotle said, “Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education… WhyTry is about the HEART and Relationships. It’s about life skills and how math, english and the sciences must be relative to understanding and appreciating each of our worlds. It is about courage and getting up every time we get knocked down. Rocky said it best in this clip: http://youtu.be/_Z5OookwOoY”
“WhyTry is a program designed to motivate children and youth (as well as adults) using videos, music, visual analogies, and activities. It is unusual in the sense that the methods implemented are very effective yet rarely used. I used the program with youth for 9 years and it was very effective in motivating youth, helping build relationships with them, and teaching them basic life skills. One of my favorite things about this program is that it’s not just giving kids skills to get kids through school, it’s giving them skills to get through life.”
“WhyTry is much more than social/emotional curriculum for youth who are at risk. WhyTry helps kids and adults at all levels in life to take a look in the mirror and build a game plan for their future starting day one. Many educators have told me that their experience with WhyTry has not only helped how they work with their kids but has been a life changing experience for them as well!”
“This program teaches social and emotional life skills in a multi-sensory approach, catering to all the learning styles. We’re helping students look at their challenges differently and helping them turn their challenges into positive motivation. Essentially, we’re helping them answer the question, “Why put effort into life?”
“The key in helping our youth is to make today relevant. That’s what most teachers are trying to do for their students day in and day out. And the WhyTry Program helps them meet that goal.”
