Horizons at Sacred Heart University

“The success of our out-of-school learning and enrichment program model for Bridgeport students hinged on the incorporation of social emotional learning into every aspect of our approach. KDS helped us write a clear and compelling narrative that helped explain exactly how SEL and psychosocial supports were interwoven into pedagogy, curriculum, and the evaluation framework. We were able to secure grant funding that gave us the resources we needed to engage formal evaluators, add on-site social workers to our staff, provide on-going professional development on SEL to our staff, and enhance our enrichment experiences for students. Christina’s approach to proposal development was incredibly helpful in getting everyone involved to understand on a granular level what, how, and why we do what we do.”
