Understanding our SEL begins with the adults. It is essential that leaders understand and develop their own social and emotional competencies because of their influence on the overall environment. This summer webinar series will dive into the reports that support SEL in afterschool, offer tips for choosing SEL curriculum and guide leaders how to assess their own EQ and determine next steps to grow.

Part 1: SEL Afterschool: What We Know and How to Grow
June 12, 1 pm ET

The field of social and emotional learning (SEL) is growing, both in and out of school. We know more about the impact effective SEL can have on young people and we know more about what it means to engage in SEL effectively. Recently, there has been an explosion in the attention to (and reporting on) SEL practice – from the National Commission on Social, Emotional, and Academic Development’s report “From a Nation at Risk to a Nation at Hope,” to research by Stephanie Jones and colleagues “Navigating SEL from the Inside Out.” Where do you begin? What do you need to know and how do you use it in your programs? Join Jessy Newman from the American Institutes for Research (AIR) to learn more about NAA’s recent report, SEL to the Core, and hear key takeaways from the many SEL reports and how other afterschool leaders are supporting SEL in their programs.

Finally, you’ll learn about strategies and next steps for personal and professional growth, including NAA’s upcoming Leading with Emotional Intelligence Professional Learning Community.

Part 4: Living, Teaching, and Embracing "YOU MATTER"
July 30, 1 pm ET

We spend our days helping students understand that they matter, and that they can make a lasting impact on their communities and the world. But the success of students starts with us living it. Participants will discover how much and why they matter—to themselves, their relationships, their communities, and their students—and why it's important to remember and practice this message while leading students. Participants will also learn how to stay grounded in their passion, purpose, and positivity as we model healthy relationships and Social and Emotional practices with our students. Webinar sponsored and presented by Kristin Lorey, Director of Education, Every Monday Matters.

Part 5: Trauma-Resilient Afterschool and Summer Learning Programs: A Vision for Transformational Change
August 13, 1 pm ET

Half of public-school students in Los Angeles report moderate to severe traumatic stress symptoms. Afterschool and Summer Learning Programs have always been dedicated to positive youth development, but LA’s BEST Afterschool Enrichment Program has realized that to truly address the impacts of trauma, we must go deeper. In this session, we will discuss how we embraced a trauma-resilient approach and Sanford Harmony's social emotional learning program to reinvigorate a large-scale expanded learning system, equip staff to care for themselves as well as students and transform not only our programs but also our systems and culture. Presented by Eric Gurna, President & CEO, LA’s BEST Afterschool Enrichment Program. Webinar sponsored by Sanford Harmony.
