COMING SOON: NEW Website and Social Media Platform
WelcomeWelcome to Rockin’ the Rage, a non-profit charitable organization with a mission centered on creating a national paradigm shift towards refocusing attention on kindness. We believe kindness – an intrinsic ability of the human heart – is a necessity for positive growth and success of our children and a cornerstone of society. 


Quite simply, we want people to be NISSE©! Pronounced nice, NISSE© is a simple, memorable, and observable acronym developed by Michael Scarano, M.D., and licensed for use to Rockin’ the Rage, that has the power to provide a foundation to address our societal and school climate issues of RAGE©.


The program takes a holistic approach to creating a school culture of safety and positive growth. The essence of the organization is that students can have a say in what happens in our society.


More times than not, children feel that things are happening TO them, AT them – not necessarily FOR them. Rockin’ the Rage nurtures the students’ abilities and their needs to generate the ideals and ideas to make a change.


Find out more about the Rockin’ the Rage program on our About page.
