Description

Research is clear that social and emotional learning (SEL) is integral in supporting the academic, personal, and professional development of young people. Building upon a session at the 2017 Ready By 21 Conference in Austin, TX, this webinar will highlight national research and best practices from around the country to explore:

  • The value of afterschool settings in cultivating SEL;
  • The ways in which SEL can align with 21st century/employability skills over time;
  • What developmentally-appropriate social and emotional skill-building looks like in practice;
  • The relationship between afterschool program quality and the measurement of SEL practices for the purposes of continuous improvement; and
  • How SEL in afterschool settings aligns with other common community goals along the continuum of services for young people.

Presenters Include:

Carinne Deeds, Senior Policy Associate, American Youth Policy Forum
Erica Curry Van-Ee, Founder, Urban Curry Consulting (Grand Rapids, Michigan)
Daniel Tsin, Director of Data and Accountability, Urban Alliance
