QEL Scholarships

QUALITY EARLY LEARNING (QEL) HAND UP SCHOLARSHIP

This scholarship provides quality early learning from ages 0 to 5 for the working class who do not qualify for any government subsidies. 

Purpose

The purpose of this scholarship is to help all children become their best selves by promoting social emotional learning (SEL) and good health habits during the early years of childhood.

Santoro Education Lifeskills Foundation strongly believes, and scientists and economists concur, that investing early in ALL of our children will result in a strong foundation which they can build on.

“A building that is built on a weak foundation will always need repair. This is also true for a person’s character. Let’s all invest in the foundations, so we don’t have to spend Time and money on the repair.” -Joe Santoro

We are currently doing this in Sumter County, Florida. We are working on partnerships with other organizations to replicate this model.

This scholarship provides financial assistance to students in Middle and High School who have qualified through our application process and successfully completed our Alive2Thrive program with a teacher or mentor. Our Alive2Thrive program is made up of 36 short lessons around health and social emotional learning (SEL). These lessons are in book and video format.

Purpose

The purpose of this scholarship is to help Middle and High school students acquire the necessary social skills to become an added value to our society. Surveys have shown that businesses want both new hires and employees who have approximately 12 different social skills.  These 12 skills are the social-emotional skills taught in our Alive2Thrive Program.

“The Santoro Foundation is advocating that social and emotional learning be a core subject just like English and be mandated in every school.” – Joe Santoro
