The Discovery Program
The mission of the Discovery Institute is to provide educators with specific training to implement the Discovery Program in their schools so students have the opportunity to learn the social-emotional skills necessary to be responsible and effective in school, home, and work environments, and within the larger community.
…Over the past twenty years, the Discovery Program has been implemented in over 20 States—reaching hundreds of school and thousands of students…
Following numerous requests from educators across the country for Discovery Program training, the Discovery Institute was established in 1996 to coordinate the training of teachers, counselors, and administrators in the methods and strategies of the Discovery Program.
To satisfy training requests, the Discovery Institute developed several training options:
- An on-site/in district four-day training.
- An intensive four-day summer session in Colorado
- A 30-hour instructional/curricula DVD package.
Ideally, by providing several different training opportunities, educators can teach the Discovery Program and related skills to a wide reaching audience of adolescents. The impact of this training on a worldwide level is paramount to the vision of the Discovery Institute.
