SEL Beyond the School Day
Second Step Social-Emotional Learning for Out-of-School Time Is Coming Soon
Committee for Children is excited to announce that we’re developing a social-emotional learning (SEL) program for after-school settings, summer camps, and other learning environments beyond the classroom. Researchers, educational designers, and instructional designers at Committee for Children are collaborating with out-of-school-time experts while field testing the new program with partner sites and schools across the country. We expect this program to be available for purchase for the 2020–2021 school year.
The new program will include funding support from The Wallace Foundation.
