Mission & Vision

Our Why

Frameworks of Tampa Bay is a nonprofit organization whose vision is to be the local expert in emotional intelligence (EQ) for youth 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.

Our mission is to empower educators, youth services professionals, and parents and guardians with training, coaching, and research-based resources to equip youth with emotional intelligence skills.

We support adults in helping children build the skills to identify and manage 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.

A solid foundation of emotional intelligence (EQ) helps all children build skills that they will use every day when interacting with their peers, family, educators, and mentors. EQ competencies such as self-awareness, relationship skills, and social awareness will truly have a positive impact in the classroom, at home, and throughout life.
