About Us

SFK is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to removing the suffering and hopelessness in the lives of children around the world.

SFK is one of the few privately funded organizations currently integrated into existing school curricula. As a preventative Social Emotional Learning (SEL) program, SFK provides children with life skills and universal tools that teach them how to make wise choices. Children learn the lessons of cause and effect, which increases a sense of responsibility for their behavior and a tolerance towards others. SFK works closely with educators, parents and community leaders to ensure that children are empowered to overcome challenges, helping them to reach their full potential. (* Success for Kids (SFK) is a secular organization.)

Our programs are available for children (ages 6-14) of all ethnic, religious, economic, social, and geographic backgrounds. SFK’s global outreach program recognizes that the healthy spiritual development of children, along with their healthy physical development, not only safeguards their well-being, but is also the single best guarantee of future peace, prosperity, and security for the world.

As an educational curriculum, SFK is based upon universal human truths, such as the concepts of cause and effect, and sharing as a transformative act - truths that are held in high regard by individuals of all faiths. While our program specifically supports all types of learning styles including auditory, kinesthetic and visual—it is vested in following the best developmentally appropriate educational practices.

SFK operates in conjunction with agencies and community-based-organizations as well as in public and private schools during curriculum time. SFK is being taught in places like New York, Los Angeles, Miami, London UK, Israel, Panama City, Mexico and Malawi.
