Hopeful Minds Curriculums
and Resources
Hopeful Minds Presentation

The Hopeful Minds Presentation is a resource for all to use in their communities to share the why and how of hope. It helps educate leaders, educators, and influencers on what hope is, why hope is important, the impact of hopelessness, and the Hopeful Minds resources available for the communities to use free or charge.

Hopeful Minds K-6 (ages 5-12)

The Hopeful Minds curriculums have been designed to be easily taught by anyone. Each lesson contains background information for educators, as well as detailed lessons, lesson scripts, worksheets, and activities. Hope lessons are taught in simple language with real-life examples and interactive prompts. While it is designed for K-6, it can be used for any age (even adults!). 

We believe that hope is a human right, and offer all of the Hopeful Minds curriculums and resources free for download at www.hopefulminds.org/curriculum. Paperback versions of all of the curriculums and hopework books are also available for purchase on Amazon or wholesale at Ingram Content Group.

When you purchase any of the curriculums, 100% of your purchase profits go directly to iFred, a 501(c)(3), and the Hopeful Minds programming around the world. We encourage you to be creative in how you start teaching the programs. We just ask that you don’t change the program without our written permission.

Hopeful Minds for Teens

Hopeful Minds for Teens is a program created by teens for teens that we are currently raising funds to create. While many high schools use our current K-6 program, we know that a peer-to-peer model is more effective for learning, practicing, and integrating hope skills for this age group. As teens are struggling at unprecedented rates, it is a priority for us to create and activate this program, so please get in touch if you wish to engage.

E-mail sponsor@ifred.org for more.
