Social & Emotional Health

A child’s readiness to learn can be severely impacted by the challenges of chronic poverty. Integrating social and emotional education initiatives can help to reduce those effects – and lead to 11% gains in academic achievement. United to Learn is committed to developing social and emotional health within our schools.

Awareness of Brain Science

By understanding how stress impacts the brain, teachers and students can utilize practical strategies to produce a calm and productive learning environment.

Adult-Student Relationships

The presence of one stable adult in a child’s life mitigates the impact of toxic stress.
