From elementary through high school, studies show that when educators are more empathic, the positive outcomes are great…
Students’ academic effort, achievement, motivation, self-esteem, and empathy improve.
Teachers are more culturally sensitive and more likely to intervene in a bullying situation.
Teachers and students view their school culture more positively and report more productive and satisfying relationships.
School leaders’ employees are happier, healthier, and view their leadership as more effective.

Each educator also has access to personalized 50-minute One-on-One counseling experiences facilitated by a FuelEd Counselor and designed to improve empathic abilities.

After Empathy School, participants receive a “do-it-yourself” resource and instructional guide that includes activities, discussion prompts, and rubrics related to empathy to keep the learning going.
