Social-Emotional Development

Students need to develop strong social-emotional skills to thrive in school, career, and life. Do your students/children have what they need to succeed?
Social-emotional learning helps students:
  • regulate their emotions,
  • manage stress,
  • cooperate with others,
  • set and achieve goals,
  • teach self-awareness, and
  • build self-confidence.
According to research by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, social-emotional learning helps young people to be "twice as likely to attain a college degree in early adulthood; 54% more likely to earn a high school diploma; and 46% more likely to have a full-time job at the age of 25."*
