How Out-of-School Time Programs Help Youth Excel
Learn how implementing an experiential learning model in STEM experiences that focus on social and emotional learning (SEL) helps youth excel. Research has demonstrated that sustained and well-integrated SEL engages youth and improves their achievement. You will leave this webinar with activities you can use to engage youth in SEL through STEM experiences, and resources from Click2SciencePD to train staff and volunteers to develop these two competencies:
- Facilitating Inclusive Learning Environments: This competency helps professionals develop strategies for designing activities for the social and emotional safety and development of youth in their programs and know how to respond to inequities when they occur.
- Encouraging Collaborative STEM Work: This competency helps professionals develop strategies to facilitate collaborative and interaction in learning experiences, and support youth in developing the skills to be effective collaborators.
