Social and Emotional Learning in Practice
Social emotional skills are powerful and complicated. There are no cookie cutter methods that work with every young person, but youth workers can influence how social emotional skills are caught and taught within their program.
This training builds an understanding of how to support social emotional learning (SEL). By exploring practices that introduce social and emotional learning opportunities into existing programs, participants will walk away with ways to support social emotional skill growth.
How it works
- Identify how your program supports SEL.
- Participate in small group discussions designed to evaluate SEL practices in your program.
- Practice key ways to support SEL.
What you’ll have when you walk away
- A map to explain how your program supports SEL.
- Ways to include staff, families and youth in SEL conversations.
- Ideas for infusing your learning environment and experiences with SEL.
- Tools to begin measuring SEL growth.
