Project Cornerstone book selections, class discussion and activity lessons were developed by the YMCA of Silicone Valley. Each month a school-wide book is read in every classroom throughout the campus. Project Cornerstone gives students a safe and caring place to talk about their feelings, experiences and concerns. The goal of the program is to teach our children skills that they can use today and throughout their lives to help them deal with peer pressure, building and keeping friendships, making healthy decisions, and solving problems. By sharing these concepts, our entire school community, from principal to student, share a vocabulary and collective strategies for dealing with difficult situations both in school and out.
Trainings, books and lessons are all developed for you so its simple to become a volunteer reader and lead the classroom visits. This is a great way to volunteer in your child's classroom.
