THE EMM EDUCATION PROGRAMS

Every Monday Matters believes that every student deserves to know how much and why they matter—to themselves, the community around them, and the world. Our education programs are designed to help students discover just that.

Read on for more information about our free and low-cost, standards-aligned, flexible, and hands-on Social and Emotional Learning programs for students in grades K-12.

THE EMM K-12 CURRICULUM

Accessed by more than 4,000 educators and education staff members who represent more than 1.4 million students, the year-round, no-cost EMM K-12 Curriculum is a flexible yet powerful program for engaging today’s youth in topics and activities that build self- and social-responsibility, awareness, and engagement. Through hands-on Social and Emotional Learning activities, students in grades K-12 learn in real time how to be confident, empathetic, caring, and impactful in positive ways.

Built on our yearly calendar of relevant monthly themes and weekly topics, the EMM K-12 Curriculum revolves around the three perspectives of “I Matter,” “You Matter,” and “We Matter,” helping students understand their own worth, how to engage in healthy and strong relationships, and how they can be active members of their classroom, community, and world.

 

Each week of the K-12 Curriculum features a menu of 15+ minute activities that can be successfully implemented with minimal preparation time and materials, and are easily adapted to students’ grades, ages, ability levels, classroom goals, and group size. The K-12 Curriculum can be used in in-school settings, after-school and expanded learning programs, summer programs, and as a part of student club and leadership programs. Activity lesson plans, videos, and other resources are available on EMM’s online Educator Portal.

THE EMM SERVICE AND LEADERSHIP CLUBS

The EMM Service and Leadership Club program is for youth leaders seeking a student-run, advisor-assisted program for 6-12th grade students. With an emphasis on leadership and campus and community service, Service and Leadership Clubs provides students the unique opportunity to put Social and Emotional Learning skills into practice while making a lasting and positive impact on the world through service learning.

Clubs are encouraged to use our calendar of monthly themes and weekly topics, as well as the K-12 Curriculum, as inspiration for their activities, while also responding to the wants and needs of their school and community.

EMM Service and Leadership Clubs can be used in in-school settings, after-school and expanded learning programs, summer programs, and as a part of existing student club and leadership programs. While Service and Leadership Clubs are largely run and directed by the students involved, free resources are available on EMM’s online Educator Portal, including a clubs handbook, fundraising suggestions, and a guide to running effective High-Quality Service Learning projects.

To access Service and Leadership Clubs materials, sign up on our Educator Portal at www.everymondaymatters.org/educators and email us at edu@everymondaymatters.org with questions and training inquiries.

LISTEN

It’s no secret that students of all ages are faced with challenges every day. But when it comes to challenges that impact our students’ feelings of safety, self-worth, wellness, and acceptance, our 8-12th grade students can be especially affected.

That’s why EMM partnered with veteran filmmakers Erahm Christopher and Brooke Dooley to create Listen, a whole new program focused on mental and emotional wellbeing. Listen pairs a powerful Hollywood film of the same title with an impactful curriculum that addresses the challenges our upper grade students are facing everyday, including bullying, violence, substance abuse, and mental illness. Through the 12 lessons and 60+ hours of the Listen curriculum, students are empowered to take positive action to help themselves and each other, and to activate members of their campus and community for support and solidarity.
