Connecting Lives By Finding The Strength Within

The Center for Educational Research + Development (CERD) is a team of highly regarded social science researchers and practitioners dedicated to the pursuit of resilience education. Through nationally recognized and time-tested consultation, research and evaluation, CERD methodology has proven its success time and again, promoting healthy youth, strong families, innovative organizations and progressive communities. Educating leaders in the context of elementary and secondary schools, adolescent treatment centers, correction facilities, colleges and universities, businesses, government public and private institutions, the resilience protocols have changed the lives of many, especially those with roots in the most adverse condition.
