Brief Program Description

A school’s culture and climate are essential to the emotional health of all students–particularly students of color. Schools are in a challenging dichotomy with having to adjust to the new normal that COVID presents while also unmasking the racial barriers that can impact students of color. Many schools seem unsure how to bridge the emotional and academic gap for marginalized students and even more uncertain about how to address students in mental distress due to COVID, which disproportionately impacts minorities. Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) as a framework can help schools combat the trauma associated with both colorism and COVID.
