IWE’s Winning Solution
IWE’s programs present a winning solution: a program that is hands-off for teachers while achieving your desired wellness outcomes in students.
We make extensive use of real-time outcomes measurement that delivers immediate insights into how the learning is going. This isn’t about measuring what and how much the student has learned. It’s about making sure that the program makes a difference.
Choose the Program that Works and Fits for Your School
Starting on the Path
Start your students out with science-based wellness strategies.
Students explore what wellness is and why it’s critical to their success and happiness.
Eight concise online units give students the science-based skills that foster responsible decision-making, positive self-talk, healthy behaviors, and supportive relationships. Students expand their thinking about what counts toward their success and how to use the right strategies and tools to achieve their goals.
Curriculum can be incorporated into class, club, or after-school activities.
Create champions to model and inspire well-being.
This program creates student champions by training a small group of student leaders as peer wellness coaches in the first phase of the program through a rigorous interactive, online program.
In phase two, those peer coaches take peers through an evidence-based curriculum designed to empower students with the skills to recognize and manage difficult feelings, define and act in accordance with healthy values, create healthy relationships, and use cutting-edge behavioral science to set and achieve meaningful goals.
Engage all members of your school community.
Wellness 501 offers school communities a comprehensive program that changes lives by changing mindsets and behavior using evidence-based strategies and methods.
Rigorous, competency-based training develops a large cadre of certified wellness coaches from within the student body, and teaching and administrative staff.
As part of the formal school curriculum or club/project activity, coaches lead semester-long wellness groups that use interactive journaling, discussion, brainstorming, and role plays to internalize healthy ways to think, behave, and interact.
Why IWE’s Wellness Initiative Works
Simple and Effective
IWE offers programs to work and fit for every school. Our state-of-the-art, evidence-based approaches to improving school culture make change not only possible, but easy.
The six changes participants commonly report after participating in one of IWE’s wellness programs:
