The Tumaini Way
Tumaini means Hope
Our curriculum resources, implementation model, and professional development ensures that each child, in each school, in each community is healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged.
Our resources cultivate the health and well-being of each student by addressing the physical, mental, emotional, and social dimensions of health.
We ensure students learn in an environment that is physically and emotionally safe for students and adults.
Our resources ensure students are actively engaged in learning and is connected to the school and broader community.
Each student is challenged academically and prepared for success in college or further study and for employment and participation in a global environment.
We partner with schools who prioritize Social Emotional Learning and provide guidance with building awareness, commitment, and ownership around the work.
We work with school leaders to recruit and select an SEL Team who will be responsible for ensuring there are dedicated, ongoing efforts to implement schoolwide SEL, engage all stakeholders, and develop a shared vision for SEL.
We assess the needs of each school and develop a plan with assigned roles. We provide quarterly professional development for all staff.
Our highly qualified SEL Hope Leaders provide ongoing technical and implementation support through training, classroom observations and feedback.
We cultivate a community of adults who engage in their own social and emotional learning, through staff retreats, workshops, self care days, and professional development.
We work directly with students at "Tumaini Schools" to build their SEL skills and model best practices by facilitating school-wide SEL retreats, workshops, and interactive panels with community leaders.
