Mapping Social and Emotional Learning in Youth Programs

Friday, October 11

Youth workers writing on a white board

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.

Who should attend

Teams of program leaders, managers, coordinators and direct service providers who have previously attended SEL in Practice or have a solid understanding of SEL basics. We encourage teams of 2-3 to register together.
