fueling schools with the power of relationships

Join us

With the support of people like you, we can tip the system so that social and emotional training for educators is the “new norm,” secure relationships are at the center of every classroom, and human development is the primary goal and outcome of our educational system. This year has been a monumental leap forward on that journey to the future. Our sincere thanks to everyone who will join us on this mission by investing your time, funds, and influence to make the world more happy, healthy and whole.


Take a moment to remember your favorite teacher.

Our best teachers were likely not just teachers. They were counselors, coaches, and parent-figures. They connected with us, and in their classes we tried harder, we did better, and we transcended academics to learn about life and ourselves. Why? Because relationships drive learning.

Relationships also fuel educators - educators who enter the profession ready to change lives but leave exhausted by the intensely relational and emotional day-to-day work in classrooms and schools.

That's why we're here. Since our founding in 2012, FuelEd has been working toward a world where educator training and support develop educators who build the kinds of relationships that change lives. Join us today with an investment in one of these critical levers toward building a movement of emotionally intelligent educators and relationship-driven schools:


Growing educators

FuelEd grows educators’ capacity for meaningful connection. Through training and counseling, we develop teacher, principal, and district administrators’ relationship skills, self-awareness, and emotional well-being. Join us in supporting schools, educators, and students with an investment in educator social-emotional development.

Catalyzing schools

FuelEd supports educators in creating lasting change in their spheres of influence. After FuelEd’s trainings, our educators go on to shape policies and practices that orient classroom, school, and district systems toward a focus on relationships, impacting a range of outcomes from decreases in challenging student behavior to greater staff retention and satisfaction.

Transforming the field

Social-emotional learning for students has taken off, but the field has identified a huge need to develop educator social-emotional capacity. FuelEd’s experience in this space makes us uniquely positioned to take expertise from on-the-ground to craft and disseminate innovative evidence-based solutions for real educators. Join us in creating a large-scale paradigm shift that can have a widespread impact on the field of education.
