Elementary Schools: Competent Kids, Caring Communities

Event: Ongoing
Contact: Dr. Arlean Wells/212-879-4900x330

According to a recent study published in the American Journal of Public Health and cited in The New York Times, social competency in kindergarten predicted positive outcomes in later life such as high school graduation, college enrollment, and stable employment. Competent Kids, Caring Communities (CKCC), a program of the Ackerman Institute for the Family, teaches the social-emotional skills that have been documented as critical for these types of successful outcomes. Highly rated as an evidence-based “SELect” program by Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL), CKCC is currently being implemented in a number of elementary schools and is poised to expand both within and beyond the New York area. To learn about bringing CKCC to your school or district, contact CKCC Coordinator Dr. Arlean Wells or click here and visit our website.
