THE WORLD LEADER IN ACADEMIC RESILIENCE
WE'RE TAKING SEL TO THE NEXT LEVEL.
For 20 years, the WhyTry Program has been using SEL to help struggling students make positive life changes. Our engaging new Resilience for Youth Program provides strategies to help all students develop lifelong resilience.
WhyTry programs use a unique multisensory approach that allows students to see, hear, and experience the concepts being taught. Visual analogies give students achievable steps to gaining life skills and developing resilience in academic and real-world settings. For the hands-on learner, our programs use activities with relevant tie-ins, helping facilitators reinforce social emotional principles in an engaging way. With visual learners in mind, we encourage teachers to use relevant video to spark classroom discussion, and take advantage of the art and writing activities found in our journals. WhyTry music uses hip-hop and other genres to help teachers get past students’ defenses and reach them in a language they understand.
For each of our programs, we offer two-day trainings that equip you to immediately begin implementation.
