Mission & Vision

Our Why

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

As the local expert in social and emotional learning (SEL) for youth, Frameworks offers 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.

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.
