Children Flourish with Safety and Support

Our Programs

Committee for Children develops programs rooted in social-emotional learning (SEL) that help transform schools into supportive and successful learning environments. Programs like Second Step, an SEL-centric solution that provides parents, educators, and the community with tools to guide the social-emotional growth and safety of today’s youth. Together, our programs help us achieve our mission to foster the safety and well-being of children through social-emotional learning and development.

Not Just Better Students, Better People

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