Welcome To The S.E.N.S.E.S. Foundation

The S.E.N.S.E.S. Foundation is a comprehensive tutoring and mentoring program for teens and young adults. The S.E.N.S.E.S. Foundations’ primary agenda is to REVITALIZE our youth and to ENCOURAGE them to USE THEIR SENSES!

The array of S.E.N.S.E.S. programs and services expose the youth of WNY to vital teachings and valuable learning experiences that will induce constructive life choices. The S.E.N.S.E.S. teaching model is a proven resource of information that encourages good decision making and healthy lifestyle choices during the crucial adolescent and young adult years.

The S.E.N.S.E.S. Foundation was founded by local psychiatrist and author, Dr Curlane Jones-Brown, who through years of psychiatric practice, developed the six S.E.N.S.E.S. core lifestyle components. Proper knowledge and training in these vital components can consummate the decision making practices of today’s youth. As a result, positive decisions will aid an effective progression to a more healthy and successful quality of life.

The six core values of the S.E.N.S.E.S. teaching model are:

Sane Mind

Preserving your individual mental health and becoming aware of mental health disorders that others are faced with.


Reinforcing individual classroom etiquette and study skills while developing college preparatory skills and discovering the various options for higher education and vocational training after High School.

Nutrition & Health

Expanding the knowledge of the human body as it relates to living a healthy lifestyle along with becoming familiar with several healthy living habits.

Social Skills

Developing job skills and public speaking abilities along with a course in formal and in-formal etiquette techniques.

Economics & Entrepreneurship

Financial literacy in banking, budgeting, keeping good credit, the stock market and entrepreneurship skills.

Social Responsibility

Exploration of your individual role as part of a student body, community and greater generation of youth.

Although there are a number of youth enrichment programs operating in Buffalo, few have been able to engage youth successfully. S.E.N.S.E.S. provides a unique, practical and inspiring program that holds participants to high expectation.
