What if we could change the odds for all children?

We believe, with strong social emotional health, every child, no matter their circumstances, can defy any odds and change the trajectory of their lives.

Social emotional health is the ability to understand and manage one’s emotions, reactions and relationships.

With it, children learn how to regulate their emotions, understand others, and gain life-changing tools like empathy, gratitude, grit, optimism, problem solving and self-regulation.

Where do we start?

We start by prioritizing social emotional health. Using a trauma-informed, research-backed approach, we work at the intersection of education and mental health to innovate with children’s wellbeing in mind.
