The EQ Child consults with families, schools and after school organizations to help nurture emotional intelligence in children.  We place strong emphasis on 'the other half of a child's report card' and the social-emotional skills that are critical to his or her development.

Volunteers

SEL doesn’t stop at the front door of a child’s school or home. Community organizations such as libraries, YMCAs and boys and girls clubs play an essential role in reinforcing the social-emotional themes that are critical to healthy development. Get in touch to learn more about SEL and the strategies after school services can incorporate to help support kids.
