Social-Emotional Learning  (SEL) That Works

Proven To Increase Resilience and Persistence

Every day, students face stressful situations at school and at home. EmpowerU engages students of all ages using SEL lessons — with the evidence-based reflection, support and highly-trained coaching they need to internalize the knowledge and skills.

We make it simple for classroom teachers to deliver the Tier 1 curriculum with fidelity. And we partner with school counseling teams to seamlessly deliver Tier 2 targeted interventions to the students who need it most.

And our three-year data shows that more than 93% of students who complete EmpowerU’s online program make a dramatic shift from discouragement and stress to improved wellbeing, motivation and hope.

Online SEL

Online SEL Support, Delivered in Daily Doses

When students struggle, they can find themselves in a place of discouragement and avoidance. And when motivation, focus and energy are low, it’s easy to fall behind — and much harder to engage and catch back up.

EmpowerU’s Tier 1 and Tier 2 SEL programs create the daily structure and support students need to improve their resilience and self direction. Growth happens one day at a time, one small step at a time. And the results of this approach have the potential to last a lifetime. 

Progress That Lasts

It takes more than lessons, slide decks and handouts for a SEL curriculum to change the way a student thinks, feels and handles the stressful times that school and life bring.

That’s why EmpowerU uses daily bite-sized lessons to engage students at every age and stage — and pairs it with reflection, feedback and highly-trained coaching. This helps students tap into their Inner Coach and develop healthy perspectives and strategies to carry them through whatever challenge they face.

Our Tier 1 SEL curriculum for grades K-8 was developed to build a foundation of SEL skills to help students succeed in school and in life. Classroom teachers follow simple prompts for monthly lessons and brief daily calming activities. Students then cement their learning using journaling prompts written to help students identify and nurture their inner coach. And our online high school Tier 1 course is tailored to the needs of these students.

Our Tier 2 SEL student intervention for grades 3-12 features the addition of 1:1 student coaching with trained instructors, using EmpowerU’s intuitive online platform. This intervention allows for asynchronous student support, allowing time for independent reflection and convenient messaging with their EmpowerU coach.

EmpowerU curriculum is aligned with CASEL and National Health and Wellness Standards.
