What is Roots of Empathy?

Roots of Empathy is an award-winning charitable organization that offers empathy-based programming for children. Our vision is to change the world – child by child.
Roots of Empathy is considered a model of social innovation and has two programs: a flagship program of the same name for children in elementary school – Roots of Empathy, and Seeds of Empathy – a program for children ages three to five in childcare settings. Both programs have shown significant effect in reducing levels of aggression among children, including bullying, while raising their social and emotional competence and increasing empathy.
