Hi there, we're Merge!

Do You Empower Youth? This Youth Development Software was developed for You.

Have you been searching for an easy-to-use, affordable, youth development assessment and management tool? So did Bill Rossi, founder of Youth Advancement through Music & Art. His program served over 2,500 challenged youth and adults, but he couldn't find an easy-to-use software that assessed meaningful outcomes and managed our program ... so he created one.

Working with other educators and mental health professionals, he developed a youth development assessment software that would work in all types of programs. He and his wife founded Merge Education in 2008 to disseminate the Student Evaluation Software and Rossi's Creative Teaching Approach.

SETS was fine-tuned during COVID. It's robust, user-friendly, and affordable. Get it today to optimize your youth development program and ensure more funding. Survive and thrive!


SETS was developed for youth development programs that typically struggle for funding. SETS gives them the tools they need to evaluate and prove their success to funders.
