Why It Matters

Social emotional learning takes place naturally during amazing conversations, where everyone is managing their emotions, empathizing with others and listening to be heard.  School is the only chance some students may ever get to get to develop the confidence to find their voice to stand up and change the world.

What We Do

We help teachers get meaningful conversations started in class and provide training to help them use these conversations to energize their curriculum.

How We Do It

  • We offer free curriculum to help teachers get SEL conversations started in class.
  • We provide training through professional development memberships, live workshops and online webinars.
  • We teach online courses that help teachers design conversations that can be used to energize their own content and make what they are already teaching more engaging.
  • We customize SEL support for schools with extraordinary needs.
