Our intended outcomes:
Positive social behavior     •     Fewer conduct referrals    •     Less emotional distress     •     Improved academic performance

METCO Headquarters provides students, families, and schools with social work support services in order to foster behavioral and academic growth.

Students can receive support with:

  • INDIVIDUAL SUPPORT (social emotional, trauma, behavior)
  • GROUP WORK (cultural identity, social emotional, behavior, anti-bullying)
  • REFERRAL SERVICES (after-school activities, psychiatric assessments, family stabilization services)

Our focus is on Social-Emotional Learning (SEL), which is how children and adults develop the ability to 

  • Manage emotions
  • Set and achieve positive goals
  • Feel and show empathy
  • Establish and maintain positive relationships
  • Make responsible decisions
