In 2010 we began developing our groundbreaking trauma-informed-social-emotional-cognitive (TISEC) curriculum to help young men between the ages of 12 and 18 in Nashville’s juvenile justice system. The program was developed with the help of Meharry Medical College, Vanderbilt University, Peabody School of Education, The Rand Corporation, USAID senior specialists and our youth participants.
Our mission is to support the social and emotional growth of under-resourced and justice-involved youth and adults to empower these individuals to contribute to the communities in which they live.
We imagine a world where every person has the skills and opportunities to participate and thrive in the communities in which they live.
After several of StreetSolid's group facilitators had been working in the field for 5 years, StreetSolid was incorporated as a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation in 2016.
Our Reach / Our Partners
Since 2016 we have served over 1500 participants and we have recently expanded our programing to a much wider participant base.
StreetSolid’s programing is an evidenced informed curriculum, constructed after an extensive review of the latest medical, psychologic & sociological data.
Our program is founded on principles of cognitive behavior therapy with a focus on social emotional awareness and skill building.

The programming that StreetSolid provides our students is amazing. Our students look forward to the days they get work with the StreetSolid mentors. From running a business to handling personal finances, the sessions are so valuable to the students inside and outside the classroom. They also bring in industry leaders to work with the students. This program is so valuable for our school and students.
