Mapping Social and Emotional Learning in Youth Programs

Woman writing on whiteboard

This advanced workshop is designed for program leaders ready to develop a deeper understanding of how their program aligns with social and emotional skill building. Programs designed for social emotional learning have parallel cycles. They have a program cycle that describes an activity, ongoing project, or goal that youth work towards. They also have a social emotional learning cycle that describes the skills youth need to develop organization, deal with challenges, and succeed in the program.

Through opportunities for reflection, working together with peers, and coaching from instructors, this workshop will provide participants with tools to describe how and why their program supports social emotional skill development.

People who have taken this course say:

"It was very helpful for gaining a new perspective on our program sequence and where our kids are already practicing SEL skills in our program. It was also very useful to create a new visual tool that represents our offering."

"This workshop gives you an opportunity to re-evaluate and re-assess what you currently are doing."
