Children Flourish
with Safety and Support

Our Programs

Committee for Children is dedicated to developing research-based programs that promote the social-emotional development, safety, and well-being of children. We strive to fulfill our mission in classrooms around the globe with our suite of programs that help schools build a safe and supportive environment for learning. Educators who use the research-based Second Step Suite report increases in attendance, rising test scores, and a positive shift in school culture.

The Second Step Suite

With the Second Step Suite, educators give Early Learning–Grade 8 students the tools they need to excel in the classroom and beyond. The Second Step Suite is a combination of the Second Step SEL program, Bullying Prevention Unit, and Child Protection Unit. Together these programs help improve behavior, build a positive school environment, and address safety—all while creating lasting results for children and communities.
