“Lovescaping offers a fresh approach to teaching social and emotional learning rooted in learning how to love. We will build our newcomer students' self-esteem and self-confidence by teaching them to engage with and practice the fifteen pillars of Lovescaping: respect, care, honesty, communication, empathy, trust, vulnerability, compassion, humility, patience, solidarity, liberation, gratitude, forgiveness and hope. We provide a safe and healing space where our students express their feelings and emotions, develop self-love and self-awareness, cultivate healthy relationships and become better prepared to embark upon their high school journey, graduate and thrive in life.”
