We deliver and implement Second Step into your school. Schools have the opportunity to implement Second Step as an incursion model or to buy the program directly from the publisher (Positive Pieces Education) and receive face to face support from Connected Education.

The evidence-based Second Step program is one of the leading SEL programs world-wide. Second Step is a program rooted in social-emotional learning (SEL) that helps transform schools into supportive, successful learning environments uniquely equipped to encourage children to thrive. More than just a classroom curriculum, Second Step’s holistic approach helps create a more empathetic society by providing education professionals, families, and the larger community with tools to enable them take an active role in the social-emotional growth and safety of today’s children. It’s a difference you can feel the moment you step through the doors to a Second Step school: a sense of safety and respect grounded in the social-emotional health and well-being of the entire school community.
