JOI Neuron has so much to offer our children with real hope for a better future. This generation has knowledge at its fingertips. As educators, we need to enable them with tools to care for themselves in this messed up world we have created.

Nancy HendersonEducator and Project Director at the Prevention Council of Roanoke County.

JOI Neuron provides children and adults with tools and resources to support one another and to address their own emotions. This program can have a positive impact in so many ways!

When Carolina was doing the performance of ‘JOI Neuron -My Body Kingdom’ and she sang: “My Body Kingdom is my human form on earth and the present of my life " , I felt immediate goosebumps… then when she sang “ I am humbled to have one, awaking to the sun until my mission here is done”, I just felt tears coming down. Every single person will benefit from listening to this beautifully written song, remembering that life is a present and that we need to utilize our gifts in the very best way we can.

I have worked in pediatrics for more than twenty years, and I’ve never seen one of my staff members laugh in the way that she did during the activity and song of the JOI Neuron ‘ALIVE’ station. This program is a great fit for Pediatrics
