The Edge

SEL Student Ambassador Program

Student Engagement. Arts-integration. Social-Emotional Learning. 

Improved School Culture.

Empower your students to co-create and sustain a thriving learning environment focused on the wellbeing of everyone in your school community

Unlike any other SEL program!

The EDGE uses creative writing, theatre, and CASEL’s Framework for social-emotional learning to create student-led organizations that work to increase SEL on school campuses. 

Built from 19 years of research and application in schools and community organizations, The Edge empowers students to help elevate the SEL of their own school communities. 

 Through the elevation of student voice, increasing a positive school culture, and galvanizing peers to be their best selves, The EDGE is an excellent choice for your school!  

Recommended for students in Grades 8-12th.
