Smart Brain Wise Heart™ e-Learning Program for Boys & Girls Clubs

We are excited to introduce our new social and emotional Smart Brain Wise Heart™ e-Learning Program for Boys & Girls Clubs, ages 8- to 12-year-olds.

The primary goal of this program is to have participating youth learn self-regulation skills and improve their focus, motivation and decision-making. Smart Brain Wise Heart (SBWH) introduces tools and strategies for youth to learn how to respond to stress in positive ways.

SBWH program has four class sessions (45 minutes each) taught by an instructor trained by HeartMath Institute. Afterward, there will be six tech sessions (15-20 minutes each) with trained SBWH teen mentors. The instructor’s orientation videos facilitate getting started. The program also comes with mentor recruitment flyers, parent letters and a helpful instructor’s guide to aid instructors with getting organized.

    Given how fast, noisy, and at times, stressful our world has become, these skills are increasingly essential for effectively dealing with the change, uncertainty, disappointment and complexity today’s children face. Smart Brain Wise Heart for Boys & Girls clubs helps enable young people to reach their full potential by learning about their own heart wisdom.
