Not Just Fun & Games!

Social-Emotional Learning in Afterschool

Thursday, February 21, 2019 | 1:45 pm to 3:00 pm

Experts in child play, character building, and resource development come together in this panel to discuss how to improve afterschool programming. By expanding the network of Social-Emotional Learning initiatives into the afterschool space, we can help children and youth synthetize key values like empathy and compassion. By using play as the vehicle for important messages, we can create a more meaningful and enriching experience for the students in our programs.
