Middle School SEL Programs

Powerful, true teen-written stories


Youth Communication’s middle-school social and emotional learning (SEL) programs are one-of-a-kind experiences for young people as they enter adolescence. Created using CASEL’s SEL framework, as well as multiple SEL standards and feedback from teachers and students, our programs are engaging and relatable for students and educators alike.
YC now offers CTLE hours to New York State educators for all our professional development sessions.

Our Approach

  • Culturally responsive
  • Grounded in young people’s lived experiences
  • Literacy-rich

We had a very positive experience piloting #trending across five sites. It was a pleasure working with sites on implementing #trending — I can’t say enough good things about the curriculum that Youth Communication has developed. I recommended that our organization expand to many more sites for the coming academic year.
