Tools For Life

  • Tools for Life® and Jackson Public Schools

    Tools for Life is working with Jackson Public Schools to create new opportunities for your young scholars to manage adversity, build respectful relationships, and really flourish as learners.

    Social Emotional Learning

    Tools for Life is a social emotional learning and self-regulation program that provides practical strategies and tools that better enable children from age three to grade 8 to cope with their emotions, and act and react appropriately. The children learn to identify their own feelings and recognize body clues as to how others are feeling. They acquire decision-making strategies to channel these emotions into positive interactions and respectful communication. Self-awareness, empathy and self-regulation are enhanced by the program's eight specific tools for dealing with everyday social interactions.
