BENEFITING: Selflessness Incorporated
The Social & Emotional Learning Foundation's goal is to improve the quality of life for young students and their families by introducing social and emotional learning curriculum and techniques at little to no additional cost to the students. Using the curriculum and support offered by Yale's RULER program.
The United States has fallen behind the world when it comes to the quality of education and the cost. Over the past two decades our access to information has grown exponentially meanwhile the curriculum offered around the country to school children has been mostly stagnant. Increasing the intensity of the issue is educational funding deficits. We believe that more needs to be done to offer updated and diverse curriculum to increase student and teacher engagement. We also believe that one of the primary barriers to the faster adoption of new teaching techniques is securing the resources and funding necessary. We aim to spread awareness about the benefits of Social Emotional Learning in the classroom, raise funds to support these programs for local schools, and work with the staff to further develop modern teaching methods.
The money raised will offset the costs of starting and filing the non-profit, building the website, and begin working with educators and administrators.
The more we raise the sooner we can introduce this highly-effective teaching styles to all of the schools in South Florida. Additional money raised will be used to train local teachers in Social & Emotional Learning curriculum. Thank you!
