Research shows that the age of a learner has a direct correlation to behavioural change as young people are in the process of developing emotional, social and financial behaviours.

SELFMatters believe that not all learning is academic.  We should take advantage of the highly impressionable period by introducing SELF Programme which stands for Social, Emotional, Lifelong Learning Skills and Financial Capability at a young age.  The earlier we introduce these courses, the more likely young people will be able to develop strong character, habits and patterns that will give them a very good head start in life.  There’s really nothing guaranteed but if you provide young people with opportunities to open their mind and heart, heighten their awareness and curiosity to learn new and exciting things and apply the lessons in an everyday situation, they will be able to succeed in incorporating powerful habits, resourceful beliefs and values that will serve them in life.

We identified that academic curriculum is just one of the learnings.

SELFMATTERS fosters social and emotional, lifelong learning skills and financial capability for young people and adults.

With the home as the centre of learning following the closure of schools, we create diversity, richness and context in the content.

Social and Emotional, Lifelong Learning Skills (SELs) cannot be more emphasised during this time of the pandemic.  SELs is not just for young people but for all across ages. SELFMatters courses are relevant and timely at this time of greater need for self-care, wellbeing, security, safety and trust. Our courses aim to promote resilience, empathy, self-esteem, perseverance, curiosity, optimism, inner strength and confidence.

The shutdown of schools does not mean that learning is cancelled. Learnings do not just take place at the school but everywhere more so it’s been put back to the fundamental place which is the home, and with parents as the primary educators. So, this is a time of greater learning for both young people and adults. With the Covid-19 crisis as the backdrop for learning at home and with parents as teachers, the experiences of people like fear, sadness, survival, coping, overcoming, finding ways are critical life lessons that we need to understand and learn so we can put them in context to form and strengthen their character. It’s a time of deep work within!



We are the Philippines’ School of Human Capability.
Learning cannot wait. Education must be prioritised. Resources must be made available immediately. Young people should not be put in silos but with the help of technology, we can find greater connection and richness in learning.
