Vector Solutions, the leading provider of training and software solutions to help schools make their operations and communities safer, smarter and better, was named a winner in THE Journal’s New Product Awards for its Student Safety & Wellness Courses. The courses earned a Platinum award – the highest available – in the Social Emotional Learning Program Management category.
Vector’s Student Safety & Wellness Courses are powerful, engaging web-based video lessons authored by subject-matter experts on topics such as Bullying & Cyberbullying, Youth Suicide Awareness, Alcohol, Vaping & Drug Prevention, Sexual Harassment, Digital Citizenship, Stress & Anxiety, Depression, and Healthy Relationships. The courses feature diverse peer presenters and can be used for primary prevention training or for remediation with students who may have disciplinary issues related to these topics. They include lesson plans and activities to help facilitate conversations about these important topics.
“We created our Student Safety & Wellness Courses to help schools support student wellbeing by helping students understand and navigate difficult situations and address stress, anxiety and depression,” said Vector Solutions CEO Marc Scheipe. “Winning this New Product Award from THE Journal validates the importance of this work and Vector’s mission to help make schools safer and more inclusive.”
