UP NEXT: Further growth and a greater impact on the youth our curriculum impacts in 2022! _______________________________________________________ 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.
We are so proud to announce that beginning in May 2020, The CORe Project will be releasing its Grades 3 through 5 curriculum! For those Elementary Schools who are looking to tackle such topics as Social Media Bullying, How to Become a Friend, Bullying (in-person), Self-Esteem, and Empowerment...among others...this curriculum addresses ELA (English, Language, Arts) standards.

CORe is an acronym for Creating Our Reality and following two and one-half years of research, was released in 2015 by 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 to meet SPEP - Standard Program Evaluation Protocol - Standards, in an effort to satisfy North Carolina 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.Additionally, The CORe Project is being looked at by a number of Juvenile Detention Centers as a means for preparing their kids for success upon their release.
The CORe Project has expanded beyond North Carolina into Virginia, out to California and is now positioned to expand nationally.
