Our Impact, I = EN

The Positivity Project is a nationwide movement. We base our impact on a simple equation: I=EN or Impact = Effectiveness (in each Partner School) x Number (of Partner Schools).



We firmly believe in the importance of scientifically measuring and analyzing our effectiveness. To accomplish this, we have two PhDs on our Board of Directors. Drs. Tova Walsh (Rutgers University) and Kate Kuhlman (University of California-Irvine) lead our quantitative and qualitative research to measure The Positivity Project’s impact on Partner School students and educators.

Join the Movement


We are committed to growing fast because we believe The Positivity Project has an important role to serve in our country. Creating citizens and leaders who will enhance our communities and country cannot be confined to one demographic. We are growing through organic word-of-mouth, and partnering with schools in urban, suburban, and rural communities, in public, private, and charter schools. From 1 Partner School in 2015 to 560 Partner Schools in 2019, the #OtherPeopleMatter Movement is just getting started.
