About Us

Student Success Network was formed in 2011 when a group of 15 nonprofit leaders in NYC decided it was time to shift their focus beyond traditional academic skills to include social-emotional learning (SEL) skills they knew were critically important for student success. After two years of exploration, influenced by collective impact approaches, these leaders created an SEL measurement tool so they could compare results across all their programs and identify promising practices. Their vision was that all organizations could serve more students more effectively by working together. 


This was the start of Student Success Network (SSN), which today is a self-governing community of 70 (and growing!) youth-serving organizations. With a mission to create, grow, and fuel this community of organizations collectively closing the opportunity gap in NYC, the SSN team executes a theory of change centered around:

  1. Creating an aligned network where members are committed to a vision of student success grounded in both academic and social-emotional learning.
  2. Building a knowledge base about youth social-emotional growth and other indicators of success. 
  3. Building capacity of youth-serving organizations to continuously improve outcomes. 
  4. Sharing and scaling solutions to proliferate evidence-based practices and approaches throughout the network and the field.
