Helping Kids Build Skills for Life

This #SELday, we invite families, educators, and communities to join our efforts and champion the skills kids need to thrive.

We’ve put together a collection of SEL activities that you can use at home or in the classroom. The activities are organized by grade, so whether you have early learners, elementary students, or middle schoolers, you’ll find something here to help them build their social-emotional skills.

Other Ways to Get Involved

From informative webinars to advocacy workshops where you can learn more about how to support SEL, we’ve got you covered with events throughout the year. Follow us on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook to stay up to date on our upcoming offerings.

Advocacy workshops.

Social-Emotional Learning Advocacy in Action Workshop

Join Committee for Children and the SELinEDU community for a hands-on advocacy workshop in celebration of #SELday! You’ll build skills and confidence in advocating social-emotional learning. You’ll also explore how you can make a difference locally and nationally in supporting all children’s access to building the self-awareness, self-control, and interpersonal skills that are vital for school, work, and life success. No advocacy experience is necessary.

Celebrate #SELday by Empowering Kids with Skills for Life

In recognition of #SELday, join us to hear from educators about how social-emotional learning helps kids manage emotions, set goals, and build positive relationships—skills they’ll use for life. Megan Bocchino will discuss Charleston County Schools’ work mapping SEL to the Profile of the South Carolina Graduate standard, and John Burnett, school counselor at Spring Branch ISD in Texas and founder of CounselingwithMrB, will deliver a special message.
