  • Mission:
  • Acknowledge Alliance, formerly the Cleo Eulau Center, is dedicated to promoting lifelong resilience in youth by strengthening the caring capacity of the adults who influence their lives. Acknowledge uses the power of fostering resilience to help build positive teacher-to-student and student-to-student connections to open the doors to learning and well-being.

  • Overview:
  • Acknowledge Alliance is rooted in the Theory of Resilience, which proves that when a child has a caring adult in their life who holds high expectations and believes in them, they can succeed despite adversities. Acknowledge applies this theory in the education setting, as many schools are becoming a place where teachers and students alike are feeling frustrated, alienated and lost.

    In all our school-based programs, we have a belief that the entire school community needs to be supported for students to succeed. We offer support on multiple levels, i.e. student counseling, social emotional learning classroom curriculum, educator consultation, teacher training on social and emotional issues that affect themselves and students. We use unique, evidenced-based and systemic approaches to enhance quality teacher to student relationships, develop critical character skills of students, and provide direct support that fosters resilience.

    Our systemic work to create healthier, more positive schools focuses on:
    • Resilience: helps students and teachers persevere and bounce back in the face of academic and life challenges.
    • Social competencies: allows for supportive group work and safety to take risks.
    • Emotional regulation: allows teachers and students to identify and release tensions that interfere with learning.
    • Empathy: allows teachers and students to see multiple points of view in history, literature, science, problem solving and present conflicts.
    • Cultural competence: recognizes and builds on each individual’s prior knowledge, history, awareness, and skill sets.

    Through our two programs, the Collaborative Counseling Program and Resilience Consultation Program, we include both prevention and intervention services to kids who are at high risk of failing or are already failing in the school system.

    Collaborative Counseling and Transition Program: Through a solid 18-year partnership with the San Mateo County Office of Education, Acknowledge serves 200 youth, ages 12-18, offering counseling, intervention and transition services to very high risk teens attending the San Mateo Court and County schools. Prior to our transition services, less than 20% of these students stayed in high school. Since its inception, 86% are continuing their education.

    Resilience Consultation Program: At K-8 schools, Acknowledge staff, comprised of a team of licensed mental health professionals, meets with educators in their classrooms to support them and implement ways to make school a healthy, positive place for students. Acknowledge Alliance staff has also developed a social emotional learning (SEL) program to teach students how to effectively manage emotions, make responsible decisions, establish meaningful relationships and achieve goals.

  • History:
  • Acknowledge Alliance was founded as the Cleo Eulau Center in 1994 to help children rebound from adversity by nurturing their individual strengths and resilience. Cleo Eulau, a distinguished clinical social worker, was the first woman and first non-psychiatrist to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award from Stanford University. The agency was established by a dynamic group of Cleo’s colleagues and former students to honor her lifelong commitment to support at-risk youth in achieving productive and happy lives.

    Today, Acknowledge strives to further Cleo’s dedication to excellence through our innovative programs and qualified staff and board with expertise in the fields of mental health, education and program management. We serve K-12 public and private schools in the Greater Bay Area, but our discoveries can apply to school communities nationwide.
