To promote and advance effective social-emotional learning in all schools, families, organizations, and communities in South Carolina. 


We envision a South Carolina where all parents, educators, businesses, and community leaders are united in supporting social-emotional learning; 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.
