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 the community with level initiatives across NY state related to social and emotional learning's role in improving children's lives and outcomes.
- Statewide support for SEL implementation 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, free educational opportunities, policy briefs, and resource sharing.
- A commitment to sourcing and sharing the most recent, evidence-based content pertaining to whole child development.
