Our Partners

bwhandsOur partners are educators, administrators, community leaders—anyone who works with kids and is passionate to see them grow up to be successful adults.


We have a particular interest in early-learning as we believe it creates the foundation for future success – both socially and educationally.

And our greatest contribution to this goal is to provide support of those whose efforts and philosophies align with our community efforts to create the next great generation.


We are backed up by strategic alliances with Sumter County (FL) Schools, The Villages (FL) Charter School, Take Stock in Children, Mind in the Making and The University of Florida Lastinger Center for Learning.


SELF provides the course materials, facilitator training, and follow-up resources.  Our partners provide a little time, a little effort, and a lot of TLC, and are the key to making the program work as successfully as it has for more than four years.
