Connecting with the growing community of schools and organizations who are passionate about social impact.
"Meaningful Education is purposeful education."
Having a background in music, Michael Brant began his journey in Social Emotional Development Projects by moving to South America and organizing various programs and centers.
In his time in Chile, he met and married Monica, who had majored in Early Learning. Since then the two, with most of their 14 children, have travelled to 15 countries developing their methodology and experiencing a variety of cultures and customs, expanding their world view and cross-culture programs.
We are a growing community coming from multiple countries and cultures determined to research, develop and promote Social Emotional Learning and Global Citizenship. We consult and partner with schools, districts and communities in developing personalized curriculums and programs.
WORKING TOWARD A COMMON
We believe self love and understanding, love and understanding of others and working toward a common goal are the foundations from which all human education should be based. Self love grows from self awareness, mindfulness, and character development. Understanding of others stems from social awareness and empathy. Working toward a common goal brings purposes and builds growth mindsets.
PLAN OF ATTACK
STEP 1- Start your own IEB club with our curriculums and support.
STEP 2- Work with our 4 step program to create your own social project.
STEP 3- Promote and Introduce our programs to local school systems and co-create projects.
Our mission is to infuse education with meaning. Meaningful education is purposeful education, yet all too often, the most fundamental purposes of our human existence: love and understanding for oneself, love and understanding for others, and working together for the common good, are placed in a low priority in our education systems.
We believe that these principles are the foundation blocks upon which the rest of human education should be built. If these are not set at the foundation of the house, the rest of the materials, no matter how elaborate, will fall upon the occupants.
Lessons are best taught by actions, and so our programs and materials endeavor to open doors of opportunity to practice these principles in the daily life of today’s global society.
