About Alive

ALIVE is a creative, breakthrough program that helps students and schools become responsive, in the moment, to the effects of toxic experiences on the educational mission.

Our Programs

Services are tailored to the specific needs of each school and can be modified through ongoing feedback from administration and staff. The ALIVE team works in parallel with faculty rather than expecting teachers to deliver the program. These powerful programs have proven to increase school sensitivity to trauma, mediate student stress, and reduce the number of office referrals and out-of-school suspensions.

The Miss Kendra Program

This elementary school workshop teaches children a child safety “bill of rights” called Miss Kendra’s List. The program has received national attention after being featured in the 2016 documentary Resilience: The Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope. Part of the program includes a book reading session where counselors read from The Legend of Miss Kendra, a powerful story that teaches children about resilience and how to cope with toxic stress.
