The MASK mission is to engage and educate parents, children and the community about the issues facing youth and to empower children to make safe, healthy choices.
Today, suicide rates are at an all-time high and social media is influencing our children’s self-esteem in many ways. MASK programs teach children and their families how to handle the ever-changing landscape that our children are living in.
MASK helps children learn invaluable life skills for how to cope with a number of issues including responding to peer pressure, dealing with trauma and technology-related challenges. In today’s viral and social media world, coping skills are more necessary than ever. MASK equips students to feel confident regulating their emotions, maintaining frustration tolerance and setting healthy boundaries. MASK has served the community, for over a decade, with the goal of strengthening parent-child bonds and empowering children to make decisions from a place of knowledge and confidence which will prepare them to thrive.
MASK fulfills its mission by engaging, educating and empowering families through the MASK E3 Institute, MASK The Magazine, an informative website, and the MASKMatters App.
The MASK E3 Institute is a comprehensive year long multi-year approach to building and strengthening life skills for children, including MASK Storytime (Pre-K), MASK Academy (kindergarten-6th grade), MASK Prep (middle and high school), MASK Leadership (college) and Parent University. This digital format teaches pre-kindergarten through college-age students social-emotional skills and tackles important topics – from drugs and alcohol to bullying and Internet safety – and gives students and parents knowledge and tools to manage these potential challenges.
MASK The Magazine is the parenting manual offering solutions to the modern-day challenges families face. Each issue of the award-winning MASK The Magazine tackles a specific topic in-depth and examines how it can affect kids from pre-kindergarten to college.
