We’re Working on a New High School Program

Committee for Children is researching and developing a social-emotional learning (SEL) program for high school students, which is expected to be available in 2024. Today, our Second Step® family of programs includes curricula for Early Learning–Grade 8, as well as a program for adults. Now we’re exploring the most effective way to support students’ social-emotional development during their high school years. Meet the team of experts leading the way.

Every program we create starts with research and field-testing to ensure that it’s relevant and engaging. We partner with educators at schools and districts across the country to gather meaningful feedback on their needs and experiences. If you’d like to participate, let us know by filling out the form below.
