Webinar: An Exploration of Social-Emotional Learning in Out-of-School Time

Program Dates 
April 15, 2014 - 1:30 PM Eastern/10:30 AM Pacific (runs 1 hr, 15 min)

Success in school and life is dependent upon social and emotional competence: the skills and ability to recognize and manage emotions, demonstrate caring and concern for others, establish positive relationships, make responsible decisions, and handle challenging situations constructively.* Research shows that out-of-school time settings can be ideal for nurturing these skills and competencies in young people – but what will it take for high-quality, effective social-emotional learning practices to take root at scale?

Register today and join the conversation as we gather thought leaders to offer immediately actionable and creatively provocative ideas on these and other questions:

  • Why has social-emotional learning become the strategic driver of some OST grantmaking initiatives – and what outcomes can we expect to see as a result?
  • How can OST funders help their grantees implement effective, evidence-based social-emotional learning practices?
  • Can focusing on social-emotional learning across the siloes of school, out-of-school, health, juvenile justice and workforce development help create equitable access for all youth to rich and engaging social-emotional learning experiences?
  • How can social-emotional learning serve as the basis for forward-thinking education policies and practices?
