Caring Loving

All Youth

CLAY’s unique youth-friendly curriculum engages students through music, journaling, and consistent mentorship, instilling leadership values through an interactive experience that allows students to absorb and apply simple truths. In addition, family team building and intentional leadership seminars equip parents to take an active role in the lives of their children and engage them with their school administration.

Teacher's
Guide

The CLAY Teacher’s guide contains an outline for each lesson. These outlines work in conjunction with the Powerpoint or Keynote presentations provided with each volume of the CLAY curriculum. The teacher uses these outlines to teach each of the subjects, combining the CLAY material with stories from the teacher’s own life. Each CLAY volume has 9 lessons.

Powerpoint &
Keynote Presentation

The Keynote and Powerpoint presentations provided with each volume of CLAY go hand in hand with the lessons in the Teacher’s guide and provide the students with an interactive experience through engaging graphics and music. They are a very effective teaching tool.

Student
Handouts

Is a printed form which students must fill out during each class. This allows the students to express their own ideas. The handouts correlate to the content in the Teacher's Guide and the Powerpoint and Keynote presentations, providing the student with a full interactive experience.
