Full Session Description

Social-emotional learning is not just for kids – in fact, it begins with the adults who work with students to develop these skills. In this session, you will explore what SEL is and build your own social-emotional skills through an interactive learning experience. You will learn firsthand how to create a culture of SEL in your program by being S-E-T: supportive, engaging, and thoughtful.

This framework guides practitioners in utilizing their own social-emotional skills to work with students. During the session, you will discuss specific ways to be S-E-T in your program and with the children you work with, including how to be supportive, engage kids during downtime, be thoughtful and observant role models, begin meaningful conversations, acknowledge behavior, and assign tasks to help kids build social-emotional skills.

By developing your social-emotional skills around the S-E-T framework, you’ll gain a strong understanding of what SEL looks like in action and leave the session with actionable skills and tactics to implement immediately in your programs.

The presenters are experienced afterschool practitioners who are well versed in SEL and its positive impact on students and adults.
