Learning and Enrichment

The Wallace Foundation’s Partnerships for Social and Emotional Learning Initiative (PSELI) is focused on how school and out-of-school experiences can be aligned and delivered in real-world, urban settings to help young people develop social and emotional skills.  PSELI supports school districts and OST partners in Boston, Dallas, Denver, Palm Beach County, Tacoma and Tulsa to align SEL practices across settings, impacting 30,000 children in grades K-6.  CASEL, the Forum for Youth Investment, the David P. Weikart Center for Youth Program Quality and others are providing technical assistance, and the RAND Corporation is conducting research on PSELI and the SEL field.  Earlier this month, RAND and Wallace released a new report detailing 60 elementary, middle and high school-level SEL programs that can meet ESSA’s expectations for using an evidence-based intervention.

For more information on Wallace’s SEL work, contact Polly Singh or Gigi Antoni.
