  Beyond reading, math, and science, young school kids need to learn to navigate their emotional and social worlds. That’s where the Toolbox Project comes in.

Since Mark Collins defined the 12 tools in his Toolbox Project, they have remained essentially unchanged--basic actions, spelled out in simple terms, that carry powerful ideas.

Students who were introduced to the Toolbox Project early on were recently interviewed about how those lessons had carried forward with them. You can see that video here.

The Toolbox Project is having an anniversary celebration on Monday evening in Sebastopol. See details below.
