Are you looking to tap into your SUPERPOWER? Do you want to learn innovative ways to incorporate Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) skills in your Out-of-School Time program? SEL provides children and youth with tools needed to succeed in school and life. Understanding and implementing effective SEL programming can result in students experiencing: improved academic performance; enhanced pro-social skills; improved positive self-image; decreased emotional distress; and decreases in behavior management challenges.  


Over the course of three sessions, participants will gain a clear understanding of the 5 core competencies of SEL: (1) self-awareness, (2) responsible decision-making, (3) relationship skills, (4) social awareness, and (5) self-management. Participants will learn about the research supporting SEL, work collectively to create fun and easy to implement SEL activities, explore providers’ role in the SEL process, and uncover the challenges and opportunities around SEL implementation. Finally, participants will walk away with helpful resources and tools to support the incorporation of SEL into OST programs through the lens of youth development practices.


The three sessions will be held 11/5, 11/19, and 12/3. Participants are encouraged to attend all three sessions if possible. If you miss one session, the facilitators will recap the previous session at the beginning of the next session. 


*Your Zoom link will be emailed 24 hours before the workshop. 


If you need to cancel your registration for any reason, please inform us within 48 hours of the scheduled training by contacting: Family League Help Desk; support@familyleague.org

Please review our Professional Development Policy below:

If a participant does not attend a training for which they have registered, or does not to notify the Family League of their inability to attend within 48 hours of the scheduled training, the organization will be invoiced a “missed session” fee of $50.00. Organizations will only be charged in the event of a “missed session” by an employee. If an agency fails to pay the missed session fee, their staff will no longer be able to access training offered by Family League of Baltimore. The 48 hour requirement does exclude extenuating circumstances such as a death in the family, serious medical emergency, programmatic emergency that would require the attendance of the registered individual, etc.

Our goal is to continue to maximize the professional development opportunities for our funded partners, while reducing the large number of no show attendees we have experienced over the last year. Thank you for your cooperation with this policy and hope that your staff continues to benefit from the opportunities that will be offered during the coming year.
