Young people are the future.

The Allstate Foundation helps create a future where young entrepreneurs have compassion and confidence to change the world.

The opportunity

Social emotional competence is a greater predictor of lifelong success than academic grades.

In fact, students who score high on social skills are four times more likely to complete college.

The method

Teach social and emotional learning skills.

There’s no better place to help young people find and establish their voice than in the classroom. Good Starts Young supports in-school and after-school programs that foster the five core social and emotional learning competencies: self-awareness, self-management and emotion regulation, relationship and social skills, responsible decision-making and social awareness. These qualities promote conflict resolution and leadership from childhood into adulthood.
