Our youth specific project, called The School of Life Project, began as an exploration of a generation through the lens of a filmmaker and evolved into a life long process of amplifying the unheard voices of our youth and helping adolescence become a place of self discovery, wisdom and hope, instead of one of insecurity, anxiety and peer pressure. As kids undergo this process of self exploration and share their story, they not only learn more about who they are, but allow their voice to resonate in the hearts of kids just like them saying "you aren't alone!"
The School of Life Project's mission is to help kids find themselves before they lose themselves.

The StoryQ kiosk gives you the chance to document your journey growing up.
The School of Life Project (SLP) has expanded into the educational field by means of the StoryQ program. Guided by the SLP key life questions, teens get to document themselves growing up and create a time capsule of their life as they live it. Educators who provide these kiosks in their schools or who have screened the SLP documentaries have noticed these three specific things about SLP teens:
By being asked to be self-analytical, participants began to process everything that was happening to them in a much healthier and productive way. Instead of being victims of their problems, they were more likely to become masters of them.
No matter what a child’s background, natural giftings or experiences, every child feels terribly alone when faced with the challenges of growing up.
When kids see the stories of The School of Life Project, they're empowered to remain vigilant and courageous as they battle through the gauntlet of adolescence.
We believe, in fact, that kids are the best authors of their own lives, and that learning to tell their own stories as they run the gauntlet of adolescence is a vital means of helping kids find themselves before they lose themselves.
