"Youth success skills." "Power skills." "21st Century skills." "Soft skills." 

As a field, we call them by a number of different names, but taken together, they represent the social, academic, and life skills, which are known to be directly supported by effective social and emotional learning.

Because conventional schooling in most places has not been able to focus productively on social and emotional learning and development, and because its benefits are so well demonstrated and wide-ranging, afterschool's opportunity to fill this crucial need is enormous.

As the leading national organization dedicated to the practice of afterschool, NAA is interested in learning more about the capacity of the afterschool field to impact social and emotional learning. Please complete the quick survey below to help us in our efforts.

Four respondents will be selected to win a $50 Amazon gift card and one lucky winner will receive a free 2016 NAA Convention registration!
