New Partners, Wide Reach During Virtual Learning
Last fall, WINGS partnered with Discovery Education – the global leader in standards-based digital content for classrooms worldwide – to help us create a social emotional learning program centered on our evidence-based afterschool curriculum. Generously sponsored by the Allstate Foundation, this program – Soar with Wings – provides FREE standards-aligned learning activities for K-5 educators to use in the classroom, during out-of-school programming, and at home.
Once virtual learning began in March, we saw views, clicks, and downloads on SoarwithWings.com SKYROCKET. To date, we have reached 2.2 million kids through this program – 700,000 of these kids were reached during the spring quarantine period. More than 76,000 educators have accessed our resources, too!
For us feelers, it feels AMAZING to be a resource for students and teachers during a difficult, unprecedented time. And, we’re excited to be releasing more content on SoarwithWings.com soon!
New Partners in SEL
As we continue to spread our wings, working together with stellar organizations and institutions makes this far-reach possible.

Operating as the state’s Department of Education, the Texas Education Agency has featured WINGS and our Soar with Wings program as a “Best Practice Resource for Schools.
“Programs listed help students develop the skills necessary to support student academic success. Skill-building lessons included in these programs help students gain the ability to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.
