Little Children, Big Challenges
Young children face new challenges at every age and stage—that's why it's so important to help them build the skills they need to become resilient. With self-confidence and the ability to express themselves, little ones will be able to handle whatever may come their way…and will just keep getting stronger.

About This Project

Little Children, Big Challenges, Sesame Workshop’s resilience initiative, was created with major support provided by BAE Systems, Inc. and generous support provided by The Prudential Foundation, the Robert R. McCormick Foundation, the USO, and Military Child Education Coalition. This project aims to help children build self-confidence, problem-solving skills, and emotional tools they need to cope with adversity. Resilient children have the ability not only to overcome difficult situations (such as bullying, divorce, sibling rivalry, and relocation) but also to learn from and be strengthened by challenges throughout their lives.
