Scott Foundation: Leadership

In our modern educational systems, overwhelming emphasis is placed on the acquisition of skills and knowledge that will enable the kids to find a job or practice a profession.  Preoccupation with this aspect of education hides the deeper and more important role of education which is to help develop the universal traits of human character in children.  These include confidence, compassion, courage, integrity, kindness, respect, tolerance, optimism, selfless service, and all the other qualities that bring peace, happiness, and success to oneself, one’s family, and society.

Our Masterclass Program is a 3 to 4 year program that holistically invests to fulfill the individual young persons social-emotional well-being, dreams, education, work-learn experiences and safely transitions to independent living through Experiential  and Social Emotional Learning.   Social Emotional Learning is the process through which kids acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.

Experiential learning creates self-directed learners. Through experiential learning, kids are confronted with unfamiliar situations and tasks in a real-world context.  To complete these tasks, kids need to figure out what they know, what they do not know, and how to learn it. This requires kids to: reflect on their prior knowledge and deepen it through reflection; transfer their previous learning to new contexts; master new concepts, principles, and skills; and be able to articulate how they developed this mastery. Ultimately, these skills create kids who become self-directed, life-long learners.​​
