All children need social-emotional and character skills to thrive in school, work and life. Out-of-school time programs play an important role in helping young people develop confidence, problem-solving skills, self-management, and interpersonal skills. Social-Emotional Learning and Character Development training equips out-of-school time staff to support young people in developing these skills.
About THE curriculum
Thirty of our most popular on-site training modules incorporate social-emotional learning, character building and Quality Standards for Expanded Learning in California. Additionally, nine modules - available both as on-site and eLearning trainings - specifically focus on providing participants with foundational knowledge on the important role out-of-school time and expanded learning programs play in helping young people develop social-emotional and character skills. These trainings equip those in leadership positions with the skills they need to create environments for adult staff to thrive as they support youth in social-emotional learning and character development.
Request any of these modules on their own, create a series, or invest in a Professional Learning Community (PLC) focused on the nine social-emotional learning and character development modules. Participants share their experiences and apply learning in between the scheduled training sessions. There is a PLC track for frontline staff and a track for leadership-level staff.
