SEL in the Out of School Setting

SEL+OST=Perfect Together: A Conference Report is a new publication from the Wallace Foundation that provides fresh insights on SEL in out of school time (OST). The report is based on a day-long meeting that brought together youth development leaders, researchers, and educators to look at two key challenges. The first involves developing the ability of adults to teach social and emotional skills. The second addresses communicating the importance of those skills to those who may be unaware of how vital they are. Topics explored in the report include research findings on nurturing social and emotional development, creating an environment where SEL can thrive, and language that can help parents and other caregivers understand why SEL is important.
