US Social Impact:

Sesame Workshop’s U.S. Social Impact department, in the division of Social Impact and Philanthropy, develops and implements philanthropically funded initiatives that support our nation’s children and families who are often marginalized. The department creates innovative, research-based initiatives and resources to enrich family engagement and build children’s development in early learning basics, emotional and health well-being, and building resilience to cope with traumatic experiences. During these unprecedented times, U.S. Social Impact has a significant opportunity to expand its reach and impact by addressing the societal consequences of the global pandemic and systemic disparities impacting children, families, and communities. We address these needs through three key initiatives, Sesame Street in Communities; Sesame and Autism: See Amazing in All Children, and Sesame for Military Families and work with a cadre of national partnerships to execute sustainable implementation.
