UP NEXT: Having just completed presenting at the National Partnership for Juvenile Services' 25th Symposium in Salt Lake City, Utah, in October, we continue our work on the Elementary School edition being available by year's end. _______________________________________________________ The CORe Project is a 7-16 week self-esteem, social-skill building curriculum for boys and girls, ages 12 - 19. It was initially designed for Teen Courts, utilizing a 7-week curriculum that was first integrated into the Robeson County Teen Court Program in North Carolina. Robeson County is the most violent county in the state where 1 of every 6 people are the victim of a crime.
CORe is an acronym for Creating Our Reality and following two and one-half years of research, was released in 2015 by the co-developers, Anthony DeNino and Jim Barbee. Jim is the Executive Director of the North Carolina Youth Violence Prevention Center.
The objective of the CORe Project is multi-faceted and ranges in topics including Emotional Development, Empathy, Vulnerability, Self-Esteem, Empowerment, and Giving Back.
Once word spread about the efficacy of The CORe Project, the co-developers were called into the offices of the NC Department of Public Safety, where it was requested to expand the curriculum to 16-weeks, in an effort to satisfy certain state-wide department standards.
The CORe Project has also being implemented in school systems.It is being utilized in after-schools programs, as a stand-alone class during the school day and as part of the Health Class curriculum, as it meets many of the Common Core Standards for Health class.
The CORe Project has expanded beyond North Carolina into Virginia, out to California and is now positioned to expand nationally.
