Throughout the United States, EDC partners with school districts, state departments of health, industries, and nonprofits to improve health, education, and economic outcomes for millions of individuals, particularly those living in marginalized, high-risk, and underserved communities.

EDC’s curricula and materials have been used in settings ranging from public school systems to local health centers. Our evaluations and rigorous studies inform both programmatic and state-level policy decision making. And our stewardship of national centers in mental health, suicide prevention, early childhood education, and STEM learning and teaching has been essential in preparing a workforce with the skills and knowledge needed to advance best practices.
