YES! Recommends: Project Happiness :: 7 Doors Project

Take your students on a journey of self-discovery that will ultimately lead them to understanding not only what is happiness for themselves, but also what is happiness for others. Each door represents a facet of your path to happiness, and hosts a multimedia array of interviews, photos, films, questionnaires, and activities.

Teenagers are at a point in their lives where they are figuring out who they are, their relationships with people, and how they fit into this world. They’re not kids anymore, but they’re also not adults. They want to be in charge of their lives.

The 7 Doors Project explores the idea of your real and lasting happiness, regardless of the circumstances around you. Behind each of the seven doors is the opportunity to explore an aspect of your own path to happiness.

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.
