STARS is a social-emotional curriculum created and presented by the Oklahoma Center for Community and Justice (OCCJ). This four-lesson interactive dialogue series helps students in 4th and 5th grade develop positive attitudes towards themselves and others. OCCJ staff and volunteers facilitate the program in elementary schools throughout the Tulsa area.

Each lesson has activities and group discussion points around a certain theme: team-work, respect, the power of words, and the value of diversity. As a group, we break down abstract concepts like respect to see what respect looks, feels, and sounds like to each of us individually. Activities include brain-storming exercises, games, creative projects, and team-builders. These lessons stay with children for a lifetime, helping them develop into caring and compassionate citizens.

We provide the curriculum and all necessary materials, and the teacher and/or other school faculty provides behavior management and technological support.
