Teaching Six Essential Skills

How We Do It


with Professional Voice Acting Guides

Improve active listening, word choices, body language, and more. StrengthBuilders includes hours of professional voice recordings in English and Mandarin to help children master the importance of tone and inflection.


with Unlimited Practice and Do-Overs

Leadership and conflict resolution stem from strong cooperation skills. Students can replay scenes and practice challenges as many times as they’d like until the new skills stick! Then, the program automatically evaluates and adjusts.


with AI-Driven Personalization

Perspective taking is a core element of the entire program, and we teach empathy through real-world practice. The algorithm’s deep AI curriculum builder automatically adds in more empathy lessons for students who need more support.


Learn to Fail and Get Back Up

Growing numbers of experts say Our gamified program is fun, engaging, and interactive; it also weaves resilience skills into every activity. The differentiated curriculum is both age- and level-appropriate with targeted challenges to overcome.


Specialized for Learning Differences

Impulse control can’t be taught through lectures and video lessons – students need opportunities to practice! StrengthBuilders is especially beneficial for children with learning differences who struggle with discipline, including ADHD and autism.


with Inner Armor + Shining Moments

StrengthBuilders gives children the ‘inner armor’ they need to stand up against peer pressure and take pride in their work. Critical thinking development, mindfulness, and positive thinking exercises give them the tools to succeed.
