In August, we hosted a webinar with the United Way of Greater Cincinnati and reviewed the most recent results of their community impact study.
As we expected, our audience for this webinar was diverse and featured both schools and out of school time programs. The idea of a strong SEL focus where kids “Live, Work and Play” is critical for the success of Social and Emotional Learning and the improvement of the lives of all students. This topic was recently brought to light in a Huffington Post story that highlights a framework for “Foundations for Young Adult Success” developed by the Wallace Foundation.
How Apperson supports SEL where kids “Live, Work and Play”: Apperson’s Evo SEL Platform features both a strength-based assessment of critical SEL Skills as well as a bevy of intervention supports that have been developed with afterschool programs in mind and also feature take-home lessons to encourage parent involvement.
