About Us


DASH Upward provides multiple tools and training opportunities that can be accessed from work, home, or in a face-to-face setting. We strive to encourage Educators, Families, and Communities to help their students have a positive mindset, overcome challenging situations, and use critical thinking skills to promote social, emotional, and academic growth. We offer strategies that can be used 24/7 to encourage the next generation to be global thinkers, problem solvers, and strategic planners. Social and Emotional Learning can be linked to improving all academic areas to help students thrive in their classrooms, homes, neighborhoods. Building a community that is tailored with respect, tenacity, balance, and peace promotes long-term learning. Each adult who is a part of a child’s life serves as a role model, and we work together with you to provide positive partnerships at all levels.
