"The Voyage program has been instrumental in providing the guidance and background knowledge our schools need as they seek to implement social emotional learning as a curriculum necessity. Schools have merged Voyage and PBIS into one seamless system to meet the needs of all students. PBIS provides the framework and Voyage delivers the curriculum needed to develop a common language throughout the schools. Voyage has aided schools in creating the school climate necessary to reach academic goals."

“We believe leadership skills can and should begin in the early grades, but had not found an effective program we felt was cost appropriate and fully justified the expense until we collaborated with ADDO to create The Voyage. It’s the character and leadership development our children need and deserve.”
