“Mind in the Making” is a program of the Bezos Family Foundation that shares the science of children’s brain development and learning through innovative in-depth training and materials geared for action. Each Mind in the Making module includes learning goals and outcomes, research videos of leading child development experts, practical teaching tips, and activities that providers complete individually, with a partner, or in small groups.

The ”Mind in the Making” Training Module consists of seven essential life skills that are based on the executive functions of the brain. They bring together social, emotional, and cognitive capacities to solve and achieve goals. Studies have found they are critical to success in school and life. The seven essential life skills of Mind in the Making are focus and self-control, perspective taking, communicating, making connections, critical thinking, taking on challenges, and self-directed, engaged learning.

The first cohort that successfully completed the training include Doreen Descartin, Elizabeth Tabora, Jane Bernadette Santos, Jennette Ramos, Carola Espiritu, Loreville Clitar, Guadencia Corilla, Mylene Macapagal, Mary Grace Billedo, Leonora Pelaez, Jeanne Salcedo, Novelita Galvez, Emma Belarde, Mariecris Cruz, and Ma.
