Shaping the next generation


Changemakers, our nationally acclaimed classroom curriculum focused on social emotional learning, was developed by mental health professionals and educators for pre-kindergarten 3 through 5th grade.


Developed after decades of professional learning and research, our curriculum uses both a mental health and equity lens to build positive learning environments where all students can thrive.

What our students know academically matters as much as who they are as people.

We emphasize understanding how the brain works, how to manage and control emotions, how to nurture and build strong relationships, and so much more. Mental health matters and we make sure students and staff have opportunities to develop as emotionally thriving people.

CASEL Accreditation

Changemakers curriculum is accredited by the Collaborative for Academic, Social and Emotional Learning (CASEL) as an Elementary SELect Program.

“While the lessons were meant for students, it does so much more. I take the lessons about the brain, breath, and empathy and use in my own life. I am a better teacher because of it.”

Units are prefaced with a Teacher Practice section that provides teachers with essential knowledge of topics covered. Additionally, each unit provides an "Equity Lens” and "Mental Health Lens,” giving teachers insight to understand and effectively respond to students' past experiences and unique identities.
