“SOUTHEAST CONNECT will provide evidence-based practices, combining mentorship and virtual learning that will connect students who are in need of SEL services in rural southeastern Kentucky and Tennessee. This region of the United States does not have adequate resources for youth who are culturally diverse and are in need of positive connections and support. Aspects of the program and practices will utilize the evidence-based Cross-Age Peer Mentoring program, while also structuring elements and best practices of Youth Mental Health First Aid.”
