SEL Awardee

“Currently, student leaders at Anderson High School co-design and lead weekly homeroom lessons to explicitly teach SEL skills along with addressing student concerns such as healthy relationships, self-management, inclusion and mental health. In pursuit of an equitable campus with a common vocabulary and understanding of the purpose of SEL, we will expand the accessibility of our SEL leadership trainings to reach student leaders from all extracurricular activities. It is our belief that by teaching a common approach to community-building, student leaders may begin a diverse, solution-driven dialogue to address our campus’ struggles and create a more unified approach to community.”
