SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL LEARNING

The importance of social and emotional learning (SEL) within our schools has never been more apparent. Pennies for Patients integrates core SEL competencies into schools and communities in an organic, philanthropic, and engaging way.

" SEL is Pennies for Patients....and Pennies for Patients is SEL. I personally have seen it at work in classrooms across my school district. This program helps us teach our students the importance of service above self & helping others."

SEL SKILLS THAT PENNIES FOR PATIENTS HELPS NURTURE:

EMPATHY


Understanding the feelings of other students affected by cancer is the backbone of our program.

TEAMWORK


By actively working together towards a common school objective, students learn the importance of cooperating with others.

COMMUNICATING


By asking potential donors for contributions, students learn the importance of expressing themselves both verbally and nonverbally.

SELF-MOTIVATION


Whether it’s to earn a classroom party, thank-you gifts, or simply to make the world a better place, students are inspired to move closer to their goals.

SEL implementation has helped lead to improvements in:
