About this Event

Our Ethics for Children program offers a fun, safe, interactive learning environment for kids to explore important topics that affect their lives, fostering empathy and a deeper understanding of self and others. We use art, theatre, games, stories, music, discussion, reflection, and action to empower students to make a difference in their world.

Our program does not impose a fixed set of values or beliefs. Rather our goal is to provide a forum where students can identify their own values, expand their knowledge and gain skills essential to developing and following their own moral compass and voice. This fall we will be expanding our programming; adding a third instructor so that we can support a greater age range of students. Our in-person classes will be held on Sundays at 11:00 at 53 Prospect Park West.

In each class we feature one of the 5 major principles of our program: Care for the self, family, community, earth, and world. As the program year progresses, we customize the curriculum guided by student interest. Previous lessons have included topics such as rising sea levels, ableism, implicit bias, animal welfare, educational access & emotional self-care.

Each month students of all ages come together to put ethics into action with a service project. Past projects have included stocking a local community fridge, making enrichment toys for shelter animals and hosting a family fun day for refugee families. Similar to our classes, service activities are influenced by student passion and interests.

Not sure if this program will be a good fit for your learner? We encourage you to contact us with questions. Scholarships are available.

Is the location inconvenient? We also offer a virtual hybrid program for ages 8-12. ( Checkout bsec.org/efc for more information)

In-Person Classes are held on Sundays 11:00 – 12:30

Price: $250 per semester (15 sessions)
