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).



P2 is grounded in research on character strengths and positive relationships. Research shows a sense of relatedness is vital to students’ academic motivation and social development. To see why students reported greater feelings of having quality relationships with others and believe P2 “makes me feel understood,” please click the buttons below.


Also, please note that P2 meets the criteria for a Tier 2 evidence-based intervention under ESSA. Tier 2 interventions (practices or programs) must provide moderate evidence demonstrating that one or more well-designed and well-implemented quasi-experimental studies support it.

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 over 800 Partner Schools in 2022, The Positivity Project is just getting started.
