THE STORY:

Children learn how the world works early on.  We, the generation ahead, are entrusted with helping them grow into happy, healthy, responsible world citizens.  To do so, children need well-developed social and emotional skills.  By supporting the next generation in developing these essential life skills, we are helping to shape a more peaceful future. 

Help Competent Kids, Caring Communities (CKCC) bring social and emotional learning to schools in under-served and poor communities where it is most needed and will make the most difference.  CKCC receives several requests per year from schools in New York City and around the country, and our waiting list is growing.  Please make a donation today.

CKCC is an innovative, evidence-based program for children in pre-kindergarten through the fifth grade. CKCC equips schools to help young children learn social and emotional skills while simultaneously supporting educators and engaging families in their children’s education.  CKCC enhances children’s self-control, anger management, and conflict resolution skills and also gives them a sense of responsibility and empathy.  What a different world we would have if all children were able to cope well, feel confident and capable, and relate to others peaceably!

 Research has demonstrated CKCC’s effectiveness, and the program has received high ratings from Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (www.CASEL.org).   But the biggest tributes to CKCC’s impact come from CKCC’s young participants, the elementary-school children themselves.  The slides to the left include letters written by 1st through 3rd graders to some of CKCC’s child-friendly metaphorical characters.   

Many schools want CKCC but don’t have the resources to pay.  Your donation will help bring this path-breaking program to thousands of children and the educators and family members who support them.  Please help CKCC reach increasing numbers of children when they are most open to learning how to manage themselves and love one another! 

For more information about CKCC contact Dr. Arlean Wells, Program Coordinator: awells@ackerman.org.
