The Cor Foundation developed four youth-led, school-based programs to change school climate. 

Federal, state, and local emphasis on academic testing has resulted in less time and resources for school personnel to promote a positive school climate, support prosocial development and prevent violence in K-12 schools. Rather than viewing students as problems to be fixed, we empower students through four research-based programs:

elementarY schools

Students document actively caring on notecards and teachers recognize students for prosocial actions. 

middle schools

College and high school students teach character strengths, prosocial concepts, and recognize the prosocial behavior of middle school students. 


high schools

COR and college students empower high school students to solve school problems and teach middle school students
