About SEL4SC

Our Mission

We are a statewide organization dedicated to promoting and advancing effective social-emotional learning (SEL) in all schools, families, organizations, and communities in South Carolina.

Our Vision

We envision a South Carolina where all parents, educators, businesses, and community leaders are united in supporting SEL; where SEL is practiced throughout our schools, homes, organizations, and communities; and where we work together as a state to elevate equity, fairness, and a better life for all.

Our Goal

We strive to ensure all children and adults in South Carolina have access to the SEL resources and support they need to succeed in school, work, and life.

We pursue this goal via the following initiatives:

  • Advocacy: We advocate for legislation and funding to support SEL across the state.
  • Public Awareness: We build local and statewide awareness for SEL and its impact.
  • Education: We provide SEL resources and implementation support to schools and other institutions.
  • Community Organization: We connect local and state stakeholders to share research and best practices on SEL.
