We stand in solidarity with all those who are affected by this senseless act of violence, and we are committed to doing our part to create a more peaceful and inclusive society.
We also want to take a moment to acknowledge our students, whose lives have been affected by these senseless acts of violence. Our hearts break for you, and we want you to know that we are here for you.
We are committed to providing a safe and supportive environment, and we will continue to work tirelessly to make that a reality. (Why do school shootings happen? Read about it here: https://yessinstitute.org/blog/gun-violence-social-emotional-learning/)

Impacts of SEL programs:
We recognize the importance of addressing these issues and providing students with the skills they need to manage their mental health and navigate difficult situations. We believe that social and emotional skills are critical for success in life, and that teaching these skills can help prevent violence and promote peace in our communities.
We are proud of the work we do at YESS Institute and are grateful for the impact that our program has had on the lives of our students. We are committed to continuing to provide support and resources to students who need them and to working with schools and communities to promote a culture of peace and inclusivity.
