Studies show that children who feel a sense of identity within a group are the most well adjusted and successful in school and with their “world view” — that is, understanding the relationship between self and others.
Studies also reveal that some of the most important skills children need for success are social interaction, communication, collaboration and problem solving, all of which a sense of community can foster.
