Mission & Vision

Our Why

Frameworks of Tampa Bay is the leading nonprofit dedicated to equipping all children in our community with the knowledge and know-how to become kind, collaborative and capable citizens. With the complex challenges kids face today, we provide positive and personalized learning experiences that develop their emotional intelligence — the critical skills necessary to navigate any emotion, conversation or situation, no matter how difficult.

From preschool through high school, Frameworks partners with trusted adults to model and teach emotional intelligence to children of all ages and prepares teens to practice it through real-world leadership experiences. Our customized coaching, workshops and strategies are proven to help kids do better in school, graduate on time, respond to setbacks with resilience, excel in the workplace, and experience a stronger sense of belonging and mental well-being.

Together with families, teachers and youth organizations, we will achieve a vibrant community where every person succeeds personally, academically and professionally because emotional intelligence is practiced everywhere we live and learn.

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.
