Project Happiness’ mission is to inspire and empower people to create greater happiness within themselves and the world. Using experiential tools, social and emotional learning (SEL), and multimedia opportunities, this visionary organization encourages individuals to look inward rather than outward for happiness, examining the relationship between personal choices and happiness. Project Happiness partners with schools, communities, and youth groups worldwide, encouraging people to find a path to happiness and to embrace our common humanity.
