K-12 physical & sexual education has come a long, long way in some areas in recent years. Yet, in other areas, it has regressed.

One of our primary goals is to revamp and reframe “phys ed” and “sex ed” from K-12 at a curricular level as well as at the level of leadership & professional development.
Nourished young minds & bodies thrive – at school, at home and in the community. For that reason, school food staff have the important job of providing daily meals to hundreds and thousands of students everyday.

Social and emotional skills are very connected to students’ overall health & well-being. Often, students are being taught these skills while staff lack them or students are being taught these skills outside of the context of their lived realities. In order for social emotional learning to be effective, it must be implemented across the school and centered around health, well-being and culture. When social and emotional learning initiatives are separated from health, well-being & culture, their effectiveness is minimized.
