The educational mission the Heroic Imagination Project is to teach students the skills and awareness needed to create lasting positive change in psychological processes critical to their academic and social success.
In education, a well-constructed program utilizes limited time and resources to create lasting positive change in a psychological process critical to the academic or social success of students. Although a number of promising areas for improvement in educational settings have been extensively researched, few of these findings have been systemically integrated by schools into their curricula, or even translated into a form that teachers can use in the classroom and that students can use and benefit from in the course of their everyday lives.
Over the last years, we at the Heroic Imagination Project, have developed, piloted, evaluated, and refined six outcomes-based programs, both in individually and as a series, to students across a broad range of ages and diverse educational backgrounds. We have incorporated and integrated into our lesson design key methodological and conceptual elements from existing interventions that have been demonstrated to result in lasting positive outcomes for students. We have translated these techniques into activities and programs that can be used by regular teachers and youth workers across a diverse range of backgrounds and experience
