Vital now, more than ever. 

In response to the uncertainty brought about by COVID, START has launched a new SEL & Leadership initiative for educators designed to provide you with an opportunity to advance your own professional leadership skills and to build the leadership mindset, skill set, and meaningful connections your students need to take the lead in their own lives and to navigate their path with purpose. 

Whether online or in person, START’s proven leadership framework can be easily embedded into your class routines to build essential life and leadership experiences for students.

We're inspired by the tremendous response to our invitation to the Education community to participate in our Tier 1 and Tier 2 Training Classes. And although the Tier2 class is now full, we're preparing to launch Tier 3.

Learn more about the course by clicking the course description button below.


In Tier 3, we are looking to enroll forward thinking participants who are interested in integrating the elements of SEL, Growth Mindset, Mindfulness, and Character Education into a holistic experience that fosters the mindset, skill set, and meaningful connections students need to discover who they are, what they care about, and where they can contribute in their school, community, and the world.


If you have an interest in participating, you can begin the process by telling us about yourself and your program.  We look forward to connecting!
