AHA is currently conducting three outreach programs; however we need your donations to help us continue our work.
Building a Compassion-Based Community
Can you imagine if we lived in a community where children (even first-graders) managed their own classrooms and set their own discipline instead of the teacher? Where children learned based on their strengths and not their weaknesses? Where children who got the lesson first taught the others who were slower so that no one got left behind? Where children who did act out were not rebuffed by the teacher but embraced with care and concern?
Where parents -- instead of telling children to be quiet, stop crying, and stuff their emotions -- encouraged their children to express their emotions in a loving, coaching style? Where caretakers such as day-care workers, babysitters, and nannies were taught the same, compassion-based parenting methods so that the child got a consistent message across the entire community?
These ideas have been implemented with amazing success in select schools around the world. AHA hopes to be the first organization in the world to help an entire community learn and implement compassion- and happiness-based parenting and teaching methods. In the school, the center of the project, we'll be measuring metrics such as dropout rate, detention hours, classroom incidents, and grades to see what impact these tools will have in improving the lives of the children and changing this community for the better.
We're in the planning stages with some forward-thinking leaders in the Bay area, so stay tuned for future updates.

Happiness in the Workplace
AHA has special programs designed for workplaces. Contact us if you'd like to help your employees experience higher productivity, less stress, and more fun in the workplace. Southwest, Zappos, and Disney have done it, and we can show you how.
