A nonprofit working globally to promote children’s social and academic success

Our vision: Safe children thriving in a peaceful world

About Committee for Children

Two young children


We create research-based social-emotional learning materials to help children succeed in school and in life. We are a nonprofit. And we’re helping create a world in which children can grow up to be peaceful, kind, responsible citizens.

It may seem like a tall order, but our social-emotional learning materials are in schools from Illinois to Iraq, Chile to California. We’ve taught millions of children in 70 countries skills that help them stay safe, manage their emotions, solve problems, avoid risky behavior, and improve their academics.

And with your help, we can reach millions more—one child, one classroom, one community at a time. Learn more about our story.
