Our mission is to promote mental health and prevent abuse by
empowering children, parents, and teachers with assertiveness skills, emotional control, empathy, resilience, and the ability to resolve conflict non-violently.

Mental Health

Decades of research confirm what we’ve always known: healthy relationships and positive parenting are key to mental health. ChildBuilders’ ground-breaking programs teach children today the parenting skills they will need in the future and help students learn social-emotional skills critical to building healthy relationships throughout their lives.

Abuse & Violence

The continuum of violence extends from aggression to abuse. To stop violence before it begins, ChildBuilders arms children, parents, and teachers with the skills of assertiveness, empathy, emotional control, and resilience. With these tools, we are able to protect ourselves, stand up for each other, and resolve conflict nonviolently.

Children & Adults

ChildBuilders’ professional development trainings and workshops employ a train-the-facilitator model, reaching hundreds of adults each year. With our curricula, facilitators are able to empower tens of thousands of children with life-enhancing information and skills. Attend a ChildBuilders training and make a difference!
