The SEL Classrooms Program has been co-developed by Armed For Life and Dr Elena Limnios; an award-winning ex-associate professor from UWA. It is an in-class program designed to run once a fortnight for two hours, or once a week for one semester – and is led by a teacher (or staff member in special cases) chosen by the school.
The goal of the SEL Classrooms program is to combine the resources that Armed For Life has been building and presenting with since inception into a teaching program with an experiential component. Currently the unit on offer is related to bullying, with more units to be available in the future.

When signing up to the SEL Program, schools will receive:
- The semester plan
- A teacher handbook (which guides teachers through through every lesson, along with providing the necessary links to everything required)
- A student handbook, to be used online or printed
- Case studies, role plays, group work, video links and more
The final five weeks of the program incorporate a creative competition where students work in groups to create a video on the unit topic. Students then assess each other and choose a class representative that will go into a state-wide competition against other classes, to be in the running to win Armed for Life sessions for their school and cash prizes.
