More than 10 years of proven research and positive results back SEL for Prevention’s programs. Our strength-based approach for Social and Emotional Learning curricula spans age and developmental levels.
Students require access to curricula that is innovative, engaging, and entertaining, while also research-based. SEL for Prevention offers exactly such curricula. It is designed to provide students, teachers, and families with immediate benefits, as well as tools and strategies that will provide life-long benefits.

The eight key concepts, strategies, and skill-sets provided by SEL for Prevention programs prepare students, ages 5-14, for a more successful future. The programs also give them the necessary tools to adapt to the pressures brought about by social, emotional, and academic stress.
Camp MakeBelieve Kids (CMB Kids)

The program creates an organic learning experience for elementary school and upper elementary school students.
