Foundation / Corporation
Grants to USA, Puerto Rico, and Virgin Islands teachers, administrators, and counselors at K-12 schools to support the development of the funding source's hands-on social-emotional educational program. Funding is intended to cover the cost of teacher and student materials. The purpose of the program is to bring self-connection to the forefront of the modern classroom, helping individuals achieve what NaliniKIDS calls connectivity.
Cost shouldn't be a prohibitive factor when it comes to bringing social-emotional learning into more schools. The Gigi Grant provides financial assistance to schools that show a strong commitment to providing NaliniKIDS to their students. The Gigi Grant provides funding toward student and teacher materials, while schools cover the cost of mandatory teacher training.
The NaliniKIDS lesson plans engage students physically and emotionally. Each lesson plan corresponds to a signature NaliniKIDS book and engages students with physical exercises and self-reflective questions, helping them connect to themselves.
The program is for grades K–12. The structure of the program is the same for all grades, but the NaliniKIDS books and lesson plans are suited to the grade.
NaliniKIDS is taught during the school day. The program is flexible so that classroom teachers, advisory teachers, or subject-specific/electives teachers can easily be trained to teach NaliniKIDS within their area of expertise/class schedule. When you come on board with NaliniKIDS, they will work with you to determine what will work best in your school.
