Social Emotional Skills for School & Life

A New Program Built to Reach Students Nationwide

We’ve partnered with Discovery Education, the global leader in standards-based digital content for classrooms worldwide, to help us create a new social emotional learning program based on our evidence-based afterschool curriculum. Generously sponsored by the Allstate Foundation, this program provides FREE standards-aligned learning activities for K-5 educators to use in the classroom, during out-of-school programming, or even at home.
