Mission:
The Lionheart Foundation provides emotional literacy programs free of charge to thousands of organizations and institutions across the country that serve at-risk youth and incarcerated adults. One out of every 100 adults in the United States is incarcerated. According to the National Academy of Sciences, 20 million youth are at serious risk of not reaching positive adulthood. We, at Lionheart, believe that most everyone can be empowered to live a responsible life and contribute to the greater good. Prisoners and highly at-risk youth often lack access to the support they need to create a life that reflects these values. The Lionheart Foundation develops and supports programs in emotional literacy to inspire and guide these often marginalized and resistant populations to develop emotional intelligence and become more hopeful, respectful, and responsible members of society. Emotional intelligence (EI), as defined by Salovey and Mayer , refers to the ability to monitor and regulate one?s feelings and emotions, and to use that information to guide one?s thinking and actions. This area of competence is increasingly viewed as playing a critical role in employment success, education and recovery from substance abuse. Since 1995, The Lionheart Foundation has positively impacted the lives of thousands of prisoners and at-risk youth across the country and changed the nature of programming in some of the nation's most violent institutions.

I got involved in the Lionheart Foundation several years ago; it's an excellent organization that's making real progress in breaking dysfunctional cycles in society - at risk youth, very young parents, and prisoners. Our prisons in the US are basically MBA programs for criminals. We're paying a ... more »
