The Fulfillment Source Code
HundrED has not validated this innovation
Why did you create this innovation?
I did not want my daughter to go through the education system without learning the fundamental evidence-based WHYS humans need to lead a fulfilled life.
The current gap in 'real-life skill's + the pace of change + influence social media has, is resulting in doubling rates of depression and suicide among teens, not to mention the impact it's had on the adults (opioid epidemic)
How does your innovation work in practice?
Through social, game-based, and active learning the Fulfillment Source Code takes the basis of the self-help industry, makes it accessible to tweens thus empowering them to thrive.
The curriculum is presented more like a fun adventure, creating early buy-in and gradually increasing scope and complexity in a way a tween finds challenging and enjoys to absorb.
Successful face-to-face classes have been made scalable as engaging activity books, facilitated interactive videos and apps.
They can be implemented at home, as after-school activities, camps, in the classroom, or one-to-one mentoring. (different strokes for different folks)
How has it been spreading?
"You are responsible for your own happiness”, is one of the FSC things that every kid should know because nowadays some children want to be popular so they do things that disagree with who they really are. I wish they would know that being happy or unhappy is controllable."
~Catherine, Grade 6
"After my child took the FSC course, she would often bring up topics that surprised me.
FSC is a very good addition to any class."
~Catherine's mom, Jo.
"The FSC enables teachers to facilitate the learning that students need to better understand themselves and their place in the world."
~ Elaine Kinllough, 30+Years Elementary & Middle School Teacher
Looking forward... ensuring the content is scalable and accessible for kids everywhere.
