Project ENGAGE

The CARE program targets teachers’ social and emotional competence and well-being as a means to improving teacher work satisfaction and retention and teacher-student interactions associated with student engagement, motivation, and academic learning. CARE addresses two critical problems in education today: increasing teacher burnout and attrition and reductions in student engagement, motivation, and learning.
