PEAR's Social-Emotional Development Work
The PEAR Institute has developed a comprehensive approach to building school or program capacity, support systems, and a common language around social-emotional development so students can learn, dream and thrive in school and afterschool settings. PEAR Impact is The PEAR Institute's initiative that focuses on social-emotional development.
