Ashoka Fellow Mary Gordon: Roots of Empathy

David |

A dialogue with Mary Gordon regarding Roots of Empathy, an award-winning charitable organization that offers empathy-based programming for children. Roots of Empathy is considered a model of social innovation and has two programs: a flagship program of the same name for children in elementary school (Roots of Empathy) and Seeds of Empathy, its “younger sibling” – a program for children ages three-to-five in early childhood settings. Both programs have shown dramatic effect in reducing levels of aggression among children while raising their social and emotional competence and increasing empathy.
