The Empathy Training Project is an organization generating research-based emotional literacy tools and services that help children develop fundamental pro-social skills, create meaningful relationships and thrive.

 We believe that Empathy can and should be taught so that the next generation will be better equipped to navigate the cross cultural landscape of our global society. 

 We empower teachers, parents, mental health professionals, and communities to create real opportunities for children to practice Empathy and build a culture of kindness. Our tools and programs bring community awareness to the power of Empathy, integrate empathic curricula and interventions and place interpersonal skills at the forefront of education.


We envision homes and communities free of abuse and violence where…

  • Every child has a safe and nurturing childhood
  • Every caregiver has the resources to develop healthy children, youth and families
  • Individuals are empowered, heal, and thrive through equal access to opportunities and resources
  • Students become leaders who use emotional literacy and confidence to enrich others’ lives and strengthen communities
