Integrity is a Muscle

Empower Youth K-12

We are pleased to announced the launch of Integrity is a Muscle: a program to empower children and teens.  This is accomplished by showing them how to enthusiastically connect with themselves and develop a firm foundation of skills and attitudes which will increase identity and understanding, and help withstand negative forces. Students are able to clearly understand and successfully live lives of peace and happiness today and in the future through comparing integrity to skeletal muscles and integrating nine character-developing themes.

Integrity is a Muscle examines moral character, and provides hands-on experience with defining and developing a life built on integrity while being interactive, engaging and fun.


Schools Teach Integrity

Integrity is a Muscle an be implemented in schools in a variety of ways:

  • School Assembly: A 40-60 minute interactive, dynamic, introspective and kinaesthetic presentation of the themes to the entire school body where mindfulness and mind-body skills provide personal experience with integrity, cultivate awareness and build resiliency.
  • 10 Weekly Classes: Highlight one theme per week for a fast track approach to developing a culture of integrity which includes a 30 minute class held weekly where each aspect of the theme is considered.
  • Monthly Themes: Adopt one theme per month throughout the school year. By focusing in depth on one theme each month students, teachers and administrators can delve deeply into the topic to increase understanding and foster an atmosphere and culture of integrity within their school.

Applicable to all students K-12, Integrity is a Muscle helps define and foster living with integrity in order to be happy and peaceful.
