Centervention and China ZionLion Group Announce Partnership to Provide Social and Emotional Learning Games for Students in China

Durham, North Carolina, August 7, 2017  –  Centervention®, the leading provider of game-based, social and emotional learning programs has partnered with China ZionLion Group to bring its suite of online games to China.

Since its formation two years ago, Centervention has released three programs to help students improve social and emotional skills: Zoo U for grades 2 through 4, Hall of Heroes for middle school, and Stories in Motion for students with Autism.

“Social and emotional skills are a universal human need independent of culture and geography,” said Tim Huntley, CEO of Centervention. “We are thrilled that over 2000 schools in the United States used our programs last year, but we need effective partners to share our technology globally.”

“Decades of research shows social and emotional skills are fundamental to success in and out of the classroom, so we wanted to find the most innovative and effective programming available,” said Joshua Zhou, Founder of Sinovest LLC, China Zionlion Group American Branch. “Fortunately, we were introduced to Centervention earlier this year by Dr. Lian Xie, President of the Carolina China Council.

Dr, Xie added, “Given our mission to facilitate cultural and educational exchanges, we are pleased that we were able to make this connection, and we are confident the two companies will build a productive partnership to positively impact students in China.”

The award-winning, evidence-based game, Zoo U® will be the first product to be translated with availability planned for later this Fall. Additional programs will follow in 2018.
