Long Term And Global Impact Is ​

A study involving 100,000 students indicated that SEL programming can have a positive impact up to 18 years later on academics, conduct problems, emotional distress, and drug use.

Multiple Benefits for Students

Previous studies suggest that, 57% more students in schools with an SEL program improved their skills compared to students in schools without an SEL program, 27% more improved their academic performance, and 24% more improved their emotional well-being and social behavior. In sum, current data collected from many studies indicates that adding an SEL program to the school curriculum can lead to several real-life benefits for students.
