Two years ago, Youth on Board was one of eight programs selected to be part of national research project funded by the Susan Crown Exchange and conducted by the Weikert Center for Youth Program Quality.  The project aimed to identify promising practices for building Social Emotional Learning skills and to develop a method for taking these practices to scale in thousands of out-of-school time settings

From this project, a framework using 6 SEL domains were developed to help practitioners think about SEL.

  1. Preparing Youth to Thrive - a field guide for practitioners
  2. Assessments for youth skillscurriculum, and program practices 
  3. Downloadable SEL exercises & practices - priceless "nuggets" from the field

Be sure to listen to Jenny Sazama's moving talk about the project and how we incorporate SEL into BSAC @ this Forum for Youth Investment Webinar.
