SENG’s mission is to empower families and communities to guide gifted and talented individuals to reach their goals: intellectually, physically, emotionally, socially, and spiritually.
SENG envisions a world where gifted, talented and creative individuals are supported to build gratifying, meaningful lives and contribute to the well-being of others. To this end, SENG reaches out to diverse communities that share our mission across the nation and the globe.
In 1981, SENG was formed to bring attention to the unique emotional needs of gifted children. It provided adults with guidance, information, resources and a forum in which to communicate about raising and educating gifted and talented children.
Today, SENG has expanded its goals to focus to include gifted and talented adults, as well as twice exceptional individuals. Many schools, communities and organizations focus on the intellectual or academic needs of gifted individuals. However, SENG is the only organization solely bringing attention to the unique social and emotional needs of gifted and talented individuals, who are often misunderstood or ignored. SENG promotes environments where gifted individuals can develop self-esteem, thrive and utilize their talents.
SENG is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit with a diverse Board of Directors. Thanks to the generosity of a few of its long time supporters, SENG has developed the ability to offer a wide variety of services. With the goal of further expanding its activities and reaching more people, SENG also accepts contributions of all sizes from individuals and organizations. Please join us in our work to increase understanding, knowledge and services for gifted children and adults.
