Empowering Kids 
in Challenging Times



SBS4Kids, or Social and Behavioral Science Solutions for Kids, was created for students, parents, and educators (K-12) whose schools / school systems continue to adapt through a third school year that is being profoundly affected by COVID.

Here, we offer resources from the social and behavioral sciences that can be helpful to address broad issues of child wellbeing and feature insights on a variety of topics that are top of mind to parents and educators, such as learning loss and inequality, physical health and safety, technology and hybrid teaching approaches, governance and leadership through a crisis, and youth empowerment.
