what we do, and how you can help.
EQuip Our Kids! is a national nonprofit campaign raising needed awareness about and support for EQ life skills, especially among parents, businesses and students. We believe that this is the fastest path to large-scale impact for kids, families, schools, the workforce, and communities.
We help middle school, high school, and community college students at no charge organize to support each other’s EQ life skills and success. Students gain community service credits.
Businesses engaging with schools in support of Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) is a powerful way to help kids get the education and support they need for wellbeing and success now and later.
Parents play a central role in building their kids’ emotional intelligence at home and advocating for SEL in schools. We help parents build the skills and connections you and your kids need.
Our experts in kids, education, and psychology engage with your parent employees, stakeholders, partners, prospects, and customers to help them equip their kids for wellness and success.
social emotional learning works.

school is more than grades.
A recent survey found that parents across the spectrum want their kids taught the specific skills SEL provides to prepare them for future success and deal with Covid stress. At home, families can share practices and tools that teach AND uplift moods.
for businesses -
SEL protects your future.
SEL boosts workplaces. Productivity and retention decline as parents deal with kids mental health. Our board member Ronnie Selinger, CEO, Nordis Technologies, makes the case for your helping your employees’ kids now and to insure quality future hires.
