The WhyTry Approach

Christian’s Story

Christian Moore, a licensed clinical social worker, overcame many personal struggles in his life. Despite these challenges, he earned a master’s degree with a 6th-grade math level and a 7th-grade reading and writing level. Along the way, he developed an approach that connects with kids like him.

A Strengths-Based Approach

WhyTry teaches life skills critical to the future success of every student or adult. While founded on well-established therapeutic practices, facilitators don’t need to be trained in these modalities to use the program.

An Evidence-Based Intervention

WhyTry is an evidence-based social and emotional learning (SEL) program. WhyTry has proven to be a successful intervention tool in a variety of settings, populations, and age groups. Across multiple third-party studies, researchers have seen significant positive changes using WhyTry.

Start Where You Are, Work Toward Full-fidelity

Students who participate in a full-fidelity implementation of the WhyTry Program show improvement across several key metrics. To ensure you reap these benefits, we follow a rigorous, yet flexible implementation model. This includes in-person training, online program access, and tools to measure progress both before and after you implement the intervention.
