The WhyTry Program is a resilience education curriculum that provides simple, hands-on solutions for dropout prevention, violence prevention, truancy reduction, and increased academic success.

WhyTry has received international recognition for its effectiveness in improving social and emotional behavior of students, improving school performance, and the reduction of aggression, truancy, and school dropout.  The program targets risk factors and issues related to academic engagement.

  • Uses ten pre-designed visual analogies
