Creating the Learning Environment
Your program environment and culture play an important part in social and emotional learning (SEL). You can influence the culture of your program by paying attention to the ways that routines, behavior expectations, and conflict resolution processes within your program support SEL. This section includes tools and templates to help staff establish expectations, give feedback, and reflect.

People who use this toolkit say:
"I saw many connections between the activities given here and YPQA practices (reflection, supportive environment, etc.), which is very helpful to the many organizations and youth workers who are always thinking about how to include more YPQA items in their programming, like we are."
