Welcome to the Home of PSELI

We envision Palm Beach County as a model community for social, emotional and academic learning where, through collaboration, equity and inclusivity, all children, youth and adults have the opportunity to reach their fullest potential to succeed in school, work and life.

This website is used for internal communications to help inform all PSELI partners of updates, events, trainings, resources and more. If you would like to subscribe to the PSELI Points, a bi-weekly PSELI e-newsletter, please email Katie Jacob, Director of Communications at kjacob@primetimepbc.org.

Partnerships for Social Emotional Learning Initiative (PSELI) is a Wallace Foundation collaborative uniting the school day and out-of-school time for improved social and emotional learning.


What is SEL?

Social and emotional learning (SEL) leads to children, youth and adults achieving academic, post-secondary, career, and life success. SEL involves acquiring and effectively applying knowledge, attitudes and skills to develop healthy identities, manage emotions and achieve personal and collective goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain supportive relationships, make responsible and caring decisions, and demonstrate behaviors that contribute to academic success.
