Project Details

What We Need
  • A compilation of research on a specific topic (e.g. industry best practices, literature review, media contacts, industry trends, etc.) including a list of sources
  • Recommendations on areas for further exploration/research
  • Note: This project is not designed to be used for prospect or grant research
Additional Details

We provide Life Skills Education/Social Emotional learning to about 250 K-12 students each year. We have been using a curriculum called Arise, published by the Arise Foundation. It is good, but we know there are a lot more options now, and we really need an evidence-based curriculum that has built in assessments to measure how the lessons are impacting students. It
also must allow our staff to be flexible & teach hands-on lessons (not completely pre-scripted or just playing videos as lessons).

What We Have In Place
  • We can provide examples of lessons in our current curriculum and our goals for the program and what we want students to be learning and achieving.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $5,239 , allowing us to put our limited funding directly in to program supplies to enhance hands-on learning.

It will help us to provide better social-emotional learning to students & give us tools to measure how well we're accomplishing our goals. This in turn will help us receive more grant funding to continue our work into the future & expand the # of students served, as we will be able to show concrete examples of how our program helps students learn important life skills & how to manage their emotions, communicate, set goals, become organized, process trauma, and gain self-esteem & confidence.
