SEL Academy Series

SEL VIII – A Second Step Ahead



Participants will have an opportunity in this final session of the series to share their takeaways from intentionally practicing, modeling and transferring SEL skills from the inside out, and shaping the path forward as they continue to implement SEL practice with youth. Participants will be introduced to Second Step curriculum components, which will provide an opportunity to further enhance youth SEL skills with lesson activities that build brain balance, connect SEL to academic content, and provide structures for sharing and dialogue in the Afternoon Meeting.
