The Newly Expanded Second Step® Family of Programs: SEL for Kids, for Adults, for Everywhere!

Decades of research show the positive effects of universal, classroom-based social-emotional learning (SEL) programs for children. There’s also broad recognition that benefits are even greater when educators’ SEL is supported and children experience SEL throughout their day: across home, school, and out-of-school time environments, and throughout developmental stages. When implemented holistically, with a coordinated, community-wide approach, SEL can build stronger communities and support inclusive, equitable learning.

Combining classroom SEL with new offerings for out-of-school time and SEL for adults, the Second Step family of programs can help you and your communities create brighter futures for kids everywhere. In this webinar, we’ll provide an overview of our programs and how they work together to help educators take a more holistic approach to SEL, from helping our littlest learners harness their potential to empowering adults to strengthen their own social-emotional skills.
