WHO WE ARE: PS I Love You Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit founded in 1998, and reaching 700-
1,000 at-risk youth a year through our proprietary Social Emotional Learning (SEL) curriculum. We are
currently a volunteer-based organization, growing quickly, that is passionate about children’s health to
include their social, emotional, physical, mental well-being and overall happiness. We strive to empower
youth to live their best life filled with self-acceptance, integrity, inclusion, compassion, motivation, love
and lots of self-awareness. Programs are taught in three formats: online, in Community PODs, and in
traditional classroom-style settings. Our programs teach the vital life skills for Social-Emotional
Intelligence identified by CASEL.org and include Growth Mindset, Resilience and Healthy Habits.
MISSION: Develop and implement effective social and emotional learning- resilience programs for
youth K-12 to influence life skills for social and emotional well-being, positive habits, confidence,
healthy relationships and most importantly, RESPECT & LOVE for self, others and the world around.
VISION: We believe that every child deserves the right to have a healthy sense of self, be able to feel
and give love and honestly believe they can accomplish great things.
