Project Cornerstone utilizes the developmental assets model to empower youth, parents, and school staff to improve school climate, reduce bullying, and create vibrant, caring communities of learners. Our programs include youth, parent, and staff engagement. Our parent engagement curriculum develops Social Emotional Learning (SEL) skills in youth including focus on inclusion, diversity, tolerance, problem solving, respect, and conflict resolution. It promotes a common language to be used throughout the school by staff, youth, and parents.
Our programs are based on the research-proven developmental assets model and can be utilized as part of a Mult-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) for achieving social and academic outcomes. In addition, Project Cornerstone programs complement Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) and align schoolwide efforts to improve climate by changing student behavior. Our parent engagement programs, ABC and Los Dichos, have all been aligned with Common Core Standards and 21st Century Learning Skills. Our programs assist schools and districts with meeting their LCAP requirements around school climate and parent involvement.
