Overcoming Obstacles is a non-profit organization that provides free resources and curricula for “life skills education,” often referred to as social-emotional learning.
The curriculum is FREE and can be used in core content classes and advisory periods, after school and summer programs, guidance and counseling sessions, and college and career prep classes.
Overcoming Obstacles advocates that life skills education gives young people the tools and support they need to communicate more effectively. To make informed decisions. To set and achieve goals. To problem solve. To resolve conflict. To become responsible, caring, and productive citizens.
