ALIVE: Creating Trauma-Informed Schools
Carolyn learned of the Alive program on at site visit in New Haven, CT when it had been highly successful in improving school climate and building resilience in students who have experience significant trauma. Knowing that schools and children in Minneapolis faced the same issues we invited Alive share their program in Minneapolis. Carolyn Foundation, the Sauer Family Foundation and Alive have partnered to introduce the program at The Mastery School in Minneapolis. In addition, three other schools in the Twin Cities have launched this program – all with promising results.
