Our Mission

Our mission is to help as many low-income kids as possible experience high-quality and effective social and emotional learning. We work towards this aim because research shows that strong social and emotional skills are key to helping kids succeed in school, be prepared for the workforce, and become positive and healthy contributors to society.
