The North Dakota Center for Distance Education (NDCDE) is partnering with EmpowerU to bring a highly personalized, data-driven solution to equip students with the skills they need to be resilient, self-directed learners and reach their goals. Our blended approach of online lessons with robust embedded coaching helps expand districts capacity to meet the urgent need to support student well-being and mental health. Now more than ever, students need support and skills to engage, learn and focus.
EmpowerU's turn-key program delivers robust and highly personalized student support each day. Over 94% of students that complete the course make significant, measurable progress toward lasting change and increased resilience. EmpowerU Do First™ Methodology helps students take actionable steps forward each day. This ensures the CASEL aligned core concepts are not just taught, but learned in a way that students can remember and apply when challenges arise.
Students can enroll in the online, credit-bearing class directly or work with their school guidance counselor.
