It takes a village to raise a child.

Our training program is for all adults who are a part of the child's care-giving village. We offer Adult SEL (Social Emotional Learning) coaching for parents, school staff and mentors. We also have a supplemental student curriculum.

 

Our mission is to transform school culture through 1. Adult SEL training and by 2. mobilizing community partners to address school challenges together.

How do I know the SEL-Plus Mentoring Method is effective?

The missing piece in traditional SEL education is the disconnect between home life and school experiences. SEL-Plus has developed an SEL mentoring method that focuses on training adults to bridge the gap between SEL in the education space and at home.

HOW IT WORKS



SEL-Plus empowers adults who impact children - parents, school staff, and community-based mentors.

We train adults to support social-emotional and mental health, of students, through coaching experiences and short educational videos. Our short videos are impactful and efficient, to deliver the content that will most support you and your youth while being considerate of your busy schedule. Our Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) video resources are separated by SEL topics and grade levels. Our training promotes on the ground SEL work, that advances pro-social behaviors, for a thriving school culture.

SEL-Plus provides the best SEL training experience for the adults who care for our children.

 

School Districts

We will train your parents, school staff, and mentors to offer effective SEL to reduce adult stress and increase student success. Our SEL themes allow the adults to have unified language and strategies to best support students.

We are also ready to deploy our community mobilization training to support your district's vision. See examples above.

Teachers

We will help you to make SEL actually happen. Aren't you tired of starting SEL work, to find that the other programs do not work for your classroom? This program is structured, yet flexible enough to bring exactly what you and your students need in your classroom setting.

Parents

In our village we heal together to enhance our capacity as parents and leaders. Could you benefit from a space like this? Join our “SEL-Plus Village.

Students

Through our initiatives, students will feel supported from adult caregivers in every aspect of their lives. And the research shows, students that feel more supported and happy reach higher levels of academic success.
