The Illinois AfterSchool Network (IAN) is sponsoring its Educational Leadership Symposium on Thursday, March 2, 2017 at the Eastland Suites Hotel and Conference Center in Bloomington, IL from 10:00am until 4:00pm. The topic of the Leadership Symposium is Integrating Social and Emotional Learning into our Afterschool Programs.
In this interactive workshop, participants will enhance their understanding of social and emotional learning (SEL), including its relevance to afterschool programs; and learn effective strategies for embedding SEL into their existing programs. Learning objectives include the ability to: identify the five core social and emotional competencies and the Illinois State SEL Standards, articulate the relevance of social and emotional learning to afterschool programs, gain awareness of the importance of their own social and emotional competence to enhance their programs’ effectiveness, and begin incorporating social and emotional skill-building into their program practice and climate.
The training will be facilitated by Caryn Curry, Social and Emotional Learning Consultant. Caryn Curry, MA, is an educational consultant who supports schools and communities to develop socially and emotionally healthy environments, and teach young people life skills that are critical to their success.
