Summary

Resilience Inc. is a nonprofit organization that offers Social Emotional Learning (SEL) tools to K-12 schools to improve mental health as well as reduce mass shootings, suicide, depression, declining test scores, low student engagement and other school-specific challenges.

  2. Self-control
  3. Social awareness

Resilience also provides tools for acquiring and maintaining inspiration, hope, and overall well-being.
