We spend 12+ years preparing for a career. How much time do we spend preparing for relationships- ANY relationship?
Our mission is to introduce relationship education to NYC high schools via Nonviolent Communication as a way to enable students to establish healthy relationships in their lives.
We envision societal harmony in a world of healthy and fulfilling relationships centered around effective communication skills and respect.
Key To Our Success
The Relationship Foundation is an educational initiative seeking to incorporate social and emotional learning curriculum into NYC high schools. We use a process called “Nonviolent Communication” (NVC) that helps to develop a vocabulary to articulate exactly what you are feeling and needing. It teaches us how to express ourselves by making requests, instead of demands or criticisms. Students and teachers alike, point to building a vocabulary of needs and feelings as having had the most impact on them. Marshall Rosenberg’s book, Nonviolent Communication, is the cornerstone of our work.
