About the Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement

Scarlet Lewis, a classmate of Doug Allen’s at DHS, founded the Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement after her son, Jesse, was among the 26 children and educators who were murdered in a mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, in 2012. Shortly after her son's death, Lewis decided to be part of the solution and created the Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement.

The Choose Love Enrichment Program teaches social-emotional learning skills, which Lewis believes is the best way to cultivate a safe classroom and school climate. The program teaches children how to get along, how to have healthy and positive relationships, meaningful connections, skills and tools for conflict resolution and responsible decision making.

Over the last three years the no-cost program has been downloaded more than 30,000 times in all 50 states and in nearly 80 countries.
