Description

Organization Overview

NewRoot builds deep social-emotional learning (SEL) skills in educators to transform the ways young people experience school and the ways schools exist to serve society. For 25 years in Chicago and beyond, we have been a premiere on-the-ground partner for high schools, districts, and organizations focused on ensuring all students graduate from high school equipped for college, career, and life success. Through our accredited Seminar curriculum and professional development offerings, we support schools and organizations in utilizing restorative justice practices that promote self-awareness, contextual thinking, and community connectedness.
