Every Monday Matters believes that every student deserves to know how much and why they matter—to themselves, the community around them, and the world. We also believe that our teachers and educators deserve to have the best resources available to help our youth grow and learn. Our free resources are designed to engage youth in activities that foster their social and emotional learning development. Explore the lessons with your students and let us know how we can support you in any additional ways. You matter to us… and to students, families, and communities everywhere.
For nearly ten years, we have produced SEL lessons that have reached over two million students in 49 states and 6 countries. We can agree on the importance of helping youth navigate their way through the world and guiding their awareness and understanding of how much and why they matter.
Whether teaching in the classroom or using a remote learning platform, the EMM Curriculum provides you with activities, tools, and resources to teach social and emotional learning to your students. With scripted lessons and editable slide decks, your students will soon be understanding how much and why they matter.
The curriculum includes:

Youth have tremendously giving hearts. They also have the capacity to take ownership and care for our communities. Provide opportunities and empower youth to show they’re community how much and why it matters through service learning. EMM’s Service-Learning resources is a different methodology for youth to truly make a long-lasting impact in our communities. Watch them shine as they take ownership of the difference they can make in our world.

Through Every Monday Matters, students have learned that their voices, opinions and actions can and do change the trajectory of a world increasingly divided to one that is more empathetic, loving and united. Every community needs to be touched by the simple words… you matter.
