About Us


SEL for Ohio is a network that connects practitioners, parents, and other education-focused leaders and stakeholder who are implementing SEL in their homes and learning environments in order to scale systemic evidence-based, equity-focused SEL in Ohio with the goal of supporting the educational, personal, and professional success of our children and young people. 



We envision Ohio as a model for a world where all schools and youth-serving organizations are centers of safe, caring and supportive activity where youth and adults are empathetic, resilient, civically engaged and culturally aware and responsive, and develop the skills to solve problems, manage emotions and form positive relationships with others.
