Mission & Vision

Our Why

Frameworks of Tampa Bay is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to empower educators, youth services professionals, and parents and guardians with training, coaching, and research-based resources to equip students with social and emotional skills.

Our vision is to be the local expert in social and emotional learning (SEL) which is achieved through services including school and district consultation, educator and mentor professional development, teacher coaching, parent and community engagement sessions, and data and evaluation services.

In doing so, we support adults in helping children build the skills that they need to face challenges and uncomfortable emotions in constructive ways, preparing them to succeed personally, academically, and one day professionally.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement

Frameworks acknowledges and honors the fundamental value and dignity of all individuals. We pledge ourselves to creating and maintaining an environment that respects diverse traditions, heritages, and experiences. In order to accomplish our mission, we are responsive to the needs of everyone in the community who receive our services, regardless of their gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, or racial and ethnic background. We create and implement programs using our awareness of cultural differences and treat all clients and stakeholders with respect. Furthermore, we have established an organizational culture that values people of all gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status or racial and ethnic backgrounds and is based on our organizational values. Our commitment to inclusiveness is evident in our organizational policies and procedures, as part of our strategic plan, and with our organizational goals.

Supporting Our Children

Frameworks impacts thousands of students from pre-K through 12th grade each day, and partners with over 90 schools (public, private and public charter) and youth-serving organizations. Our program partnerships are absolutely critical for the facilitation of this imperative area of focus.

ALL children need a solid foundation of social and emotional skills, and by fostering a sense of empathy, self-awareness, emotional intelligence, and feelings of safety and inclusivity in the classroom, SEL will truly have a positive impact that lasts a lifetime.
