Co-founded by Sonny Thadani and Scott Farber, Robin is an SEL solution that connects students with coaches and curriculum to build skills to thrive when faced with life’s toughest challenges. The company was created to provide educators with programming and support to engage students’ mental health and well-being. It coaches create safe spaces in school for all students to open up about their challenges, provide support for each other and ask for help when they need it. Students learn skills to build self-esteem and resilience, create deep connections, process negative emotions and thoughts and manage stress and anxiety. Coaching can be combined with curriculum, 5-minute activities and meditations to provide continuous skill development and emotional growth throughout the year.
