where people lead lives of kindness and compassion toward themselves and others.

What is Calmer Choice?

Calmer Choice is a universal prevention program committed to teaching young people how to effectively and safely manage stress and resolve conflict so that they live happy, healthy and successful lives. Our goal is to provide skills that will diminish the risk of violence, substance abuse, and other self-destructive behaviors.

In recent years, Cape Cod, Massachusetts has been challenged by a sharp and dramatic increase of losing young people to suicides, opioid overdose and accidental deaths associated with high-risk behaviors.

Since 2010, Calmer Choice has been dedicated to bringing secular mindfulness-based social emotional education into Cape Cod public schools. We work in close partnership with administrators and educators to provide full-school programs that build a culture of mindfulness and kindness across entire schools.

Calmer Choice values the inherent dignity and worth of all human beings.

The mission of Calmer Choice is to teach young people to effectively and safely manage stress and resolve conflict so that they live happy, healthy and successful lives.

Our goal is to provide skills that will diminish the risk of violence, substance abuse, and other self-destructive behaviors. Ultimately, Calmer Choice envisions a world in which people lead lives of kindness and compassion towards themselves and others. 


I teach for Calmer Choice because I believe that it gives children the opportunity to slow down and make compassionate and empowered choices in their own lives. Our lessons help students to understand themselves on a deeper level, which allows them to connect more meaningfully with others and the world around them. It's an exciting adventure!
