SEL4IA exists to support building capacity for districts to sustain SEL practices by advocating for legislation, building local and statewide awareness and promoting community to ensure equitable outcomes for students across Iowa.
We envision a world where all schools and youth-serving organizations are centers of safe, caring and supportive activity where youth and adults are empathetic, resilient, civically engaged and culturally aware and responsive, and develop the skills to solve problems, manage emotions and form positive relationships with others.
Build community awareness for SEL and its impact
