“Our project initiatives incorporate student voice and student leadership development and some of our trainings will be student-led. Ultimately, we strive for outcomes that establish high expectations and model behaviors and interactions for the entire school community around SEL, equity, diversity and inclusion. Our approach allows students and staff to internalize aspects of social and emotional learning through interactions that go beyond the classroom. Too often SEL strategies are siloed in the classrooms of a few teachers. We hope to expand beyond the classroom and introduce these vital concepts in a variety of formats and environments—building the capacity of the school community.”
