Seeking families for Roots of Empathy programSeptember 25, 2017 Category: NewsBack to News Page

Are you a proud parent with a new baby? Will your baby be two to four months old in October? You and your baby could be a Roots of Empathy family!

Roots of Empathy is a program for elementary school children. The program’s aim is to increase empathy - the ability to understand how another person feels. Children learn to care for and respect each other.

A baby with one or both parents visits a local classroom over the course of a school year with a Roots of Empathy Instructor. The visits are about 30 minutes long and take place once a month starting in October.
