About Us

Since 1979, Committee for Children has advocated for policies to enhance, gathered research to support, and developed educational programs to advance the safety and well-being of children through social-emotional learning (SEL).

We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit best known for our innovative social-emotional learning curriculum, Second Step. Our programs blend research and rigor with intuitive design, empowering children with skills to help them realize their goals in the classroom and throughout their lives.

We collaborate with experts in the field to share experiences and champion the cause of educating the whole child, advocating for policies and legislation that place importance on creating safe and supportive learning environments.

Reaching more than 16.5 million children worldwide each year, Committee for Children supports children today so they’ll be able to create a safe and positive society in the future.
