The program contains three unique empathy-based learning content areas:
  1. Arts-integrated curriculum that uses music, movement, and theater as modalities for learning
  2. Immersive role-play point-of-view experiences with real-life moments to build empathy.
  3. Interactive, empathy-building through different intersections of identity, including race, gender, ethnicity, and class
