"Character Education: Empowering students through artistic, interactive, and life-changing projects"



The Groovy Projects is a character development/anti-bullying organization that creates artistic and life-changing experiences with entertainment professionals.  Through community building and soul-searching activities such as music videos, short movies, writing lyrics, theatrical games, photography, drawing, beat-boxing and body percussion, we encourage students to discover that they are each special, and have the power to make everyone around them feel "Two Inches Taller."  By inspiring students with these interactive programs during their formative years, the goal is to develop their empathy and give them perspective on what type of person they want to become in the future.
