SECOND Step

Committee for Children, 2002

The SECOND STEP External Link violence prevention program integrates academics with social and emotional learning. Children from Prep through Year 9 learn and practice vital social skills, such as empathy, emotion management, problem solving, and cooperation. These essential life skills help students in the classroom, on the playground, and at home.

The SECOND STEP program is research-based. It has been shown to reduce discipline referrals, improve school climate by building feelings of inclusiveness and respect, and increase the sense of confidence and responsibility in students.

The program includes teacher-friendly lessons, training for educators, and parent-education tools.
