The Program in Education, Afterschool, and Resiliency

PEAR'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.
