Social and Emotional Learning Virtual Workshops


Relationships Are The Key

As we return to our schools, our relationships with other stakeholders is just as important as the relationship with our kids. Engaging with community is an important step in buiding those relationships and developing a high quality afterschool program. 


By engagement we are not just talking about sign in and sign out.  We are talking about developing an intentional plan to collaborate with parents, teachers, adminstrators, and others who have a stake in the growth and development of your students.

 In this workshop, we examine how we connect to the community and learn strategies to strengthen those ties to better support our students and their families.

Staff will identify key stakeholders in student’s success from parents, and teachers, to other school staff, and develop strategies for building mutually beneficial relationships.
