“We will hold SEL Community Days that feature keynote speakers and break-out sessions focused on various SEL-related topics from which students can choose. Among the experts we invite will be social and racial justice advocates, LGBTQIA+ advocates, yoga instructors, mindfulness trainers, social and self-awareness coaches, immigrants from the community, counselors that treat trauma, people who have overcome challenges related to physical or mental disabilities, trainers in responsible decision-making and empathy, stress and anxiety management coaches, team building experts and more. We will use the data gleaned from these experiences to guide our ongoing community group/mentoring program.”
