Coschool - building the best methodologies in SEL for Latin America
Why we do it?
First and foremost, we are educators. We believe that the education system needs to change. At Coschool, we are particularly obsessed with figuring out the answer to this question: "How might we develop the character skills/life skills of young people in Colombia and Latin America?". We all know by now that young people need to develop these skills, but there are few examples of successful methodologies or models of how to do so.
How we do it?
Since 2014 we have been working with schools across the country on several types of project that aim to support schools, teachers, and students to develop skills such as self-awareness, empathy, determination, and decision making in youth. We are organising our approach in our own model, called Edumoción. We run programs called Colead, Campco, and Cotrain to implement the methodology in a variety of formats.
We focus our work increasingly on teachers and school leaders and recently (late 2018) won major grants from Gates Foundation and Templeton Foundation to build scalable initiatives in this area.
We are focussed on measuring our work and proving what works (and what doesn't) so that we can start to help Governments in Colombia and Latin America make better investments in social & emotional learning. We have worked with 100 + schools, in 10+ regions of the country, impacting over 15,000 students and 2,500 teachers.
