Our Mission

All It Takes is a non-profit organization that cultivates safer schools and communities through experiential social-emotional learning. We teach young people at critical life stages to practice empathy, compassion, initiative, responsibility, and purpose in order to create sustainable, positive change for themselves, others, and the planet.

All It Takes is an organization founded by transformation trainer, Lori Woodley and actress Shailene Woodley. We see a world with people who have what it takes to be leaders both in their own lives and for others. Leaders who, through bold and compassionate action, make positive changes in their schools, communities and our world. We see a world where all people are empowered with the tools, confidence and awareness they need to inspire sustainable forward momentum that matters most to them. 


And here’s how we do it:

Out Of The Box

Customized lesson plans, activities, and facilitator training for seamless integration of social/emotional skill development and use throughout classrooms, clubs, and organizations.

Our Founders

All It Takes was founded in 2010 by Lori and Shailene as a global call to action. We believe that each of us has a responsibility to humanity and our planet to be a part of sustainable positive change and that happiness comes from participating in ways we are individually passionate about.

Our Founding Family

Lori Woodley, Tanner Woodley and Shailene Woodley

Beyond the global message, All It Takes focuses on Youth Leadership under Lori’s expertise and direction.  After 25 years as a school counselor focusing on experiential learning, parenting support, peer programs and emotional intelligence, Lori now spends her time writing and speaking on emotional intelligence issues, parenting dilemmas and the transformational work experiential education creates all while guiding All It Takes’ programming and executive operations. After 4 years of attending camps as a participant, mentor, and staff member, Tanner joined the All It Takes team as an executive board member.  He continues working directly with the planning and implementation of our programs. As a board member he has become an active voice for the youth whom we serve, helping us to meet their needs and inspire their growth.

All It Takes is a family and community affair, we look forward to you joining us as a partner, donor, participant or volunteer.
