about us



Who We Are

The You Verse Project is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that serves San Francisco, California, and surrounding areas. We were founded in response to a recognized need for positive emotional wellness, and self realization awareness for young people. We believe that providing guidance with conscious thinking, mindful learning, and metacognition, can help children become fascinated with learning themselves and their emotions

Who We Serve

Our Pathway to Yourself  program provides a curriculum created to serve the youth in grades 3-5 or ages 7-11. 

What We Do

The You Verse Project supports and develops emotional wellness through a series of self awareness & self management workshops, craft projects, meditation, interactive gaming, fundamental activities, and social play. We provide guidance with discovery, understanding, acceptance, gratitude and appreciation for giving back to others.


To increase life-long learning and success by laying the foundation for high self esteem, emotional intelligence and growth mindset.

My intentions for creating this program are to provide emotional balance, moral courage and self-governance skills through mindful learning. I've invested my time adding value, researching and gaining knowledge within the Self Discovery and Personal Development Philosophy--combined with my lifetime experiences: from my own childhood through my journey through motherhood--to create a program focused on Emotional Intelligence & Personal Competence
