The PEAR Institute's mission is to create and foster school and
afterschool settings in which all young people can be successful.
Dedicated to "the whole child–the whole day," PEAR continuously
integrates research, theory, and practice for lasting connections
between youth development, school reform, and mental health. PEAR
creates and fosters evidence-based innovations so that increasingly
young people can learn, dream, and thrive. PEAR was founded in 1999 by
Gil. G. Noam, Ph.D., Ed.D. (Habil), a nationally recognized
developmental psychologist. PEAR is a joint initiative of Harvard
University and McLean Hospital. Its programs and projects are a part of a
number of Boston schools replicated in other parts of the country.
