Empathy Alphabet - The ABC's of Social Change
We created the Empathy Alphabet as a tool designed to teach sociocultural vocabulary to young people. The alphabet also provides a foundation for the topics and themes we address in our curriculum and programming. Each of the 26 letters corresponds with a different word, and together they provide building blocks for language and concepts associated with social emotional development.
