The SEL Challenge Enters Its Next Phase

Through the generous support of the Susan Crown Exchange (SCE), the David P. Weikart Center for Youth Program Quality is pleased to announce the next phase of the SEL Challenge, the SEL Demonstration Initiative. This phase of the work will focus on demonstrating how the Preparing Youth to Thrive content, training, performance measures and practices can be integrated into youth-serving organizations across the country to improve SEL practice. Five afterschool system partners with local, statewide and national reach will participate over the coming year. The organizations are School's Out Washington (Seattle), Sprockets (St. Paul) , After-School All-Stars (Los Angeles), Beyond the Bell (Milwaukee) and Wyman. The initiative will culminate in the release of case studies that will highlight the process of how each organization integrated the Preparing Youth to Thrive supports and these lessons will be shared widely with the field. Stay tuned for updates on this initiative at selpractices.org
