What's the Buzz? is an evidence-based program now used in more than 130 countries to teach young people social and emotional intelligence. The program precisely guides educators to teach young people new prosocial skills to develop emotional and social intelligence.
This program is divided into 3 age groups; Early Learners (ages 5 – 8 years) runs over 16 weeks, Primary Students (ages 0-11 years) runs over 16 weeks and Teenagers (ages 12 – 15 years) runs over 10 weeks.
You can learn more about this global program at the official What’s The Buzz? Website.
