A Huge Return on Your Charitable Investment

“Atideinu gives the biggest bang for your buck. It’s a win-win for everyone involved. Has an impact on family, friends, class, and Rebbe. Life-changing for kids. Atideinu is stepping into the breach.”

Jeff Zuckerman, donor

According to a 2015 Columbia University study, for every dollar spent on social and emotional learning, schools are saving $11 on remedial programs and interventions.

Is Atideinu a Research-Based Program?

Twenty years of national research has proven that students who receive focused instruction in Atideinu’s five core social and emotional competencies have

  • Better academic outcomes
  • Better overall behavior
  • Increased ability to manage stress and depression
  • Better attitudes about themselves, others and school

Research also shows that the impact of social and emotional learning is long term, setting students up for reduced at-risk behavior and success over their lifetime.
