Strengthen Your Brand and Empower Families

Support schools and play an integral role in transforming the next generation.

BECOME A SPONSOR

Connect with families to grow your business

Becoming an Odyssey sponsor lets you effortlessly connect with 9,700 families from Vista and Oceanside schools. Being introduced by the school establishes you as a trusted partner, and families get consistent exposure to your brand as they play Odyssey over the course of the entire school year. In today's economy, Odyssey's free and low-cost sponsorship options fit well in any marketing budget.

Show your commitment to schools and the community

Business sponsors make it possible for schools to get free access to Odyssey's social-emotional learning (SEL) curriculum. Since SEL is proven to increase success in school and future careers, sponsorship gives you an opportunity to make a meaningful difference, paving the way for students to achieve more in life and helping develop our future workforce. 

Sponsoring Odyssey sparks deeper family relationships, gives schools a budget-neutral way to meet their SEL requirements, and empowers the future generation with habits that lead to social justice in our society.

SPONSORSHIP OPTIONS

Help schools build emotional fitness to solve the root cause of today's troubled emotional climate

Today's kids are busier and more stressed than ever, and that was even before the COVID-19 pandemic turned our lives upside down or the social-political climate became so turbulent. Not to mention the fact that our screen-filled world makes it harder for kids to learn how to relate to others or have an appropriate reaction to conflict. Research shows that emotional intelligence (EQ) is critical for navigating these challenges.

Why does EQ matter? 

EQ is our ability to understand emotions in ourselves and others. High EQ guides us to make the best decisions in life, and it's linked to improved academic scores and success in the workplace. Fortune 500 companies actively seek hires with high EQ and often prioritize it over work experience. Even more importantly, high EQ increases self-esteem, improves self-control, reduces conflict and frustration, and makes it easier for us to find joy. You know, all the things kids really need!

EQ is so important that federal and state policies promote social-emotional learning programs in schools. But in the real world of limited funding and budget cuts, it's challenging for schools to meet their EQ objectives. Throw in any socioeconomic barriers, and EQ is an even farther reach for the kids who need it most to succeed in life.

Odyssey is a scientifically-based curriculum that uses a novel approach to develop kids' EQ through practice and experience. By bringing Odyssey to schools, you're empowering them with a robust EQ curriculum that will instill life-changing habits in the next generation.

How does Odyssey work?

Students Play Odyssey

Schools implement Odyssey as part of their SEL curriculum. When you sponsor a school's Odyssey program, families recognize your business as a trusted supporter of their school and an agent of change.

Earn Points

Families earn points for each activity completed. They're motivated to play since each point earned is a chance to win prizes.

Win Prizes!

Odyssey delivers exciting prize drawing events to get students pumped up! Your brand is showcased during the weeks leading up to and during the prize drawing, creating a mental link between your business and the fun and excitement of winning.
