Not Just Better Students, Better People™
Second Step is a program rooted in social-emotional learning (SEL) that helps transform schools into supportive, successful learning environments uniquely equipped to help children thrive.
The Nonprofit Behind Second Step
Committee for Children is turning 40. The nonprofit behind Second Step is celebrating their 40th anniversary by setting an admittedly ambitious but achievable goal: to positively transform the social-emotional well-being of 100 million children annually by 2028. But they can’t do it alone. Learn more about how you can make the world grow kinder.
SEL for Adults
Now in development: a professional learning program for all school staff to strengthen their social-emotional skills.
SEL for Out-of-School
We’re creating a program for after school and other learning environments beyond the classroom.
Second Step SEL is research-based, teacher-informed, and classroom-tested to promote the social-emotional development, safety, and well-being of children from Early Learning through Grade 8.
The research-based Bullying Prevention Unit gives educators and school staff the training and tools needed to effectively address school bullying in Kindergarten through Grade 5.
Available for Early Learning through Grade 5, the Child Protection Unit empowers prevention by providing training and resources to help adults and kids know how to recognize, respond to, and report abuse.
Second Step for Middle School
Based on latest research in adolescent brain development and social psychology, this first-of-its-kind SEL curriculum is specifically designed to meet the needs of today’s middle school students and educators.
