This training series introduces participants to a simple method for integrating Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) into OST settings – S.I.T – Signature practices, Inquiry and reflection, and Thematic SEL connections. The first training focuses on using signature practices to create a safe, welcoming, engaging and inclusive OST space for all youth and adults. The second session centers on effective inquiry and reflective dialogue practices that help empower adults and youth to build their intra – and interpersonal skills in any activity or interaction. In the third training participants use their knowledge of SEL competencies and themes to help youth make SEL connections to other program content areas. Finally, session four culminates in combining the three elements of the SIT method and engaging participants to reflect and share best practices as they create program plans for SEL integration.
Practitioners from Phase II PSELI sites ONLY participate in Part One of the Series. Practitioners from Phase I PSELI sites should register and save the dates for all four sessions.
