The Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement™ was inspired by the bravery of a 6 year old boy and a mother's choice to forgive, which led to the creation of Next-Generation Social & Emotional Learning (SEL) and Character Development programming to create a safer, more loving world.

What Is Next-Generation SEL?

SEL "Plus"

Choose Love is aligned with the new Character and Social Emotional Development Standards (CSED) which include BOTH and CASEL standards.   PLUS, Choose Love has included Growth Mindset, Neuroscience, Mindfulness, Positive Psychology, Post-Traumatic Growth and Emotional Intelligence components to our program, because when it comes to preventative and proactive solutions to today’s problems, standard SEL curriculum is no longer enough.


The skills and tools in Choose Love programs, combined with our easy-to-learn Choose Love Formula™ offer a foundation for lifelong health, fulfillment and happiness. In addition to our no cost flagship Pre-K through Grade 12 Choose Love For Schools™ program, we offer no cost programs for Prenatal, Infant/Toddlers, Homes, Communities, Athletic Leadership, and more .

No Cost

Studies have shown that the consistent instruction of Social & Emotional Learning programs in schools can help treat the source of social and emotional issues, before they become a problem.  The Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement is committed to getting this essential life skills training into as many schools around the world as possible for no cost.  We rely gratefully on the generosity of donations to support this mission.
