The PEAR Institute: Partnerships in Education & Resilience
The PEAR Institute's mission is to create and foster school and afterschool settings in which all young people can be successful. Dedicated to "the whole child; the whole day; the whole year," PEAR continuously integrates research, theory, and practice for lasting connections between youth development, school reform, and mental health.
PEAR creates and fosters evidence-based innovations so that increasingly "young people can learn, dream, and thrive." PEAR was founded in 1999 by Gil. G. Noam, Ph.D., Ed.D. (Habil), a nationally recognized developmental psychologist.
PEAR is a joint initiative of Harvard University and McLean Hospital. Its programs and projects are a part of a number of Boston schools and replicated in other parts of the country.
