About Us

Empowering adolescents and young adults to become
active participants in their social and emotional learning.


The SEAD program grew out of necessity. Dr. Jessica Howard & Dr. Allen Golden worked with adolescents and college age students in different cities with different demographics, but were finding that both populations had similar needs that were not being addressed. This realization resulted in Dr. Howard & Dr. Golden engaging in separate research projects to explore the social & emotional needs of secondary students and young adults. Through their research, they both found that adolescents and young adults do not have many opportunities to build a foundation of social & emotional learning, especially in an individual way.

The mission of the SEAD Program is to touch as many adolescents and young adults as possible using an easily accessible and engaging platform. Logistically it is difficult, if not impossible, for counselors at the middle school, high school, and college level to reach every student to share information regarding social and emotional topics that pertain to each student. The SEAD Program allows for individualized learning that can be followed up with additional support when necessary. The SEAD program can also be offered in a group setting with discussions and follow-up.

The SEAD Program will also support students on Advanced Learning Plans (ALPs) as they prepare to create their required affective goals. Research has found that the majority of secondary students do not have any guidance prior to being asked to write an affective goal, which often makes the goal a meaningless act. Using the SEAD Program, students can choose to learn about a topic that is relevant to them prior to writing their affective goal.

Dr. Howard created this program to allow students to be in charge of their own learning. This program is not meant to take the place of group discussion and counseling, but to empower students and build their capacity so they know what support they need.

The SEAD program is a cost-effective way to share social & emotional learning (SEL) information with a large population of students. It is easy to access and easy to use. This program will give students a foundation to build on and supports positive social & emotional development. Pricing is based on enrollment numbers and students will have unlimited access to the videos for the entire school year. There will also be an individual (family) subscription available through the website.

On-site professional development is available. Please contact us for availability and pricing.

Teacher and parent resources will be available in the near future.
