    Q. Is this a professional development program oR an SEL curriculum for students? 


     Good question. The short answer is both. At the root of our core values we believe that any effective SEL initiative requires a strong foundation that includes quality professional learning opportunities for staff and families. Adults need to build their SEL awareness, understand how social-emotional competence improves student outcomes, and advance their skill sets required to teach, model, and shape these skills in youth. That’s why we intentionally focus on building systems that will help you prep the soil for transforming the way your school community educates kids in today’s world.


    Additionally, we include student trainings that help educators create a common language to shape students’ social behaviors during teachable moments while also fostering student identity, voice, agency, and sense of belonging as well grit, gratitude, and a growth mindset.  

    Q. How will I know this program will work?

    A. This program combines and utilizes research-driven and evidence-based practices drawn from over 200 pieces of evidence and recommendations from the leading experts in the field, including CASEL. We put our education, training, and research to work for you to take the guesswork out of this process.



    As educators, we also understand the value of gathering data and reflecting on our practices, so this program will evolve based on the feedback we receive. This way, we can provide the best SEL program available.


    That being said, a great program is just a plan. It requires dedicated individuals to carry it out. This is why it typically takes three full school years to implement a Transformative SEL program. You’ll have some faculty members dive in eagerly, others resist entirely, and the rest fall somewhere in the middle. As the eager faculty members see results, others will follow, but this process requires time, persistence, and patience. The good news, is that we are here for you every step of the way to co-learn and co-facilitate your school’s transformation. 

    Q. Why is this program so affordable?


    A. Simple – true to our educator roots, we are in the business of making a difference. Affordability has always been a big priority for Social Success in Schools, because as educators, we’re aware of the various strains on education budgets.


    We also strongly believe in the power of SEL to leverage equity and inclusion in education. We’ve seen it positively impact students’ mental well-being, relationships,  and academic progress and we want to ensure ALL children gain equitable access to these critical skills.
