Social and Emotional Learning

When youth build skills like empathy, collaboration, and teamwork, they do better in the classroom and in life. This program supports organizations that create access to high-quality social and emotional learning experiences.

Prioritizing the out-of-school time space, we identify the organizations working to bring social and emotional learning (SEL) to the forefront. Together with our partners, we identify and invest in SEL-informed practices that prepare youth to thrive.
