SEL 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).  Participants explore practices that introduce SEL opportunities into existing programs. They walk away with ways to support social emotional skill growth.
