Who is a whole child?
Our children need more than Aptitude skills to become great professionals. Employability Skills, like collaboration, team work and negotiation will help them shine in work place and in real life. Having a great attitude, a confident communication style and a value system can enable them to live up to their complete potential.
What does Future STRONG do?

These also happen to be the things that bring happiness to their life. Staying on task, focusing on their strengths and the ability to do the hard things with integrity.

Why Future STRONG?
Because we live in two worlds, the real and the online, more than ever before, social and emotional learning in addition to academic learning is more relevant now in the digital age where distractions and addictions are just a click, swipe and a hashtag away.
Thanks to large amounts of data, parents and educators today have deep understanding about the importance of happiness on a child’s ability to learn inside and outside of school. They are interested in the long term well-being of children and want to implement programs (†) which will significantly improve self awareness and deep social engagement. However, both – parents and educators, rarely have the bandwidth, the resources and the knowhow.
We’ve created a curriculum based on the pillars of 6 C’s that can help children develop confidence, collaboration, persistence, attentiveness, communication and resilience. From mindfulness tactics to strategies on time management, Future STRONG empowers children to learn their own strengths by developing the ability to believe in themselves.
Come join us.
Machines that we’re building using our spectacular Science, Math and Engineering skills are dictating how we must think, feel and act. Remember, this was our unique value proposition as humans to begin with – our mind – that can help us think, feel and act and we’re allowing tech distractions to cloud over it.
Look, on the other hand, we’re seeing how children who are not taught the value of reading emotions, understanding empathy and the ability to collaborate are becoming leaders whose moral character and conduct is being called into question. We need to teach our boys how to treat girls like equals and we need to teach our girls how to stand up for themselves.
Why leave our children’s future to chance? Together, let’s build a whole child. Join us today.
