We believe that change needs to happen from the grass roots and the grass tops.
We focus on both individual and systemic change with a goal to transform how learning happens across sectors. We work to achieve this through:
- Collaboration at community level initiatives across NY state related to the role of SEL in improving children's lives.
- Statewide support for implementation of SEL through participation on the New York State Education Department's School Climate taskforce.
- Advocacy about the importance of SEL as a core component of care and education through comunity events, policy briefs, and resource sharing.
