The following Advocate member partners of NAA offer a variety of products, programs, curriculum, and technology tools specifically designed with afterschool programs and professionals in mind.
Create Joy After-School!
Explore the world after the bell rings! After-school program leaders can take students on virtual field trips with SEL Journeys. Your students will explore new cultures, learn dance steps from each destination, and connect their journeys to Social Emotional Learning themes like diversity, empathy and kindness.
On each journey, participants choose a cultural destination, then follow along to learn simple movements inspired by a dance from the selected culture. By the end of the lesson, participants are engaged with one another in movement, playing the roles of "Joymaker" and "Peacemaker" as they dance together.
OPTIONS FOR OST:
Offer an SEL-based multicultural dance program (no dance teacher required!)
Plan weekly SEL themes and host "journeys" to introduce the theme to students
Invite parents in for a "dance-along" party or student showcase
