At Success of All Youth (SAY), belonging is the cornerstone of our collective efforts to empower young people to reach their full potential.

Children with a strong sense of belonging in their families, schools and community develop the emotional strength and self-efficacy that helps them cope with challenges and obstacles. Research indicates a sense of belonging has a profound effect on emotions, social skills, relationships, behavior and cognition – all of SAY’s other indicators of well-being.
