Raising the Bar on Staff Supports: Building Staff SEL Skills

February 13 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Wednesday, February 13, 2019 – 2:00pm to 3:00pm EST

A program culture that supports adult SEL skill growth is essential for creating youth SEL growth because cultivating SEL skills requires a higher level of emotional and intellectual engagement of staff. In order for youth to have high quality SEL experiences in youth programs, staff have to be supported in: gaining self-awareness, growing their abilities around building relationships, and being part of a team. Adults who have this understanding can then create environments for youth to do the same. Learn best practices for supporting staff SEL skill growth, preventing burn-out and creating a safe space for staff to reflect on their own practice.
