Whether you have been leading social and emotional learning in your community for years or are just beginning the work - this is your virtual SEL leadership academy!
Launched in 2020, the SEL Fellows Academy provides a deepening of SEL practice at a personal, interpersonal, and institutional level. It is for those employed by a school district or regional office of education in the United States that are passionate about SEL and responsible for leading SEL in their community.
This opportunity benefits the entire district and regional office community. With a new or enhanced plan for SEL implementation, a capstone project to benefit students, and continued access to the broad CASEL network, SEL Fellows will have expert knowledge and guidance to share with their communities.
Our model combines professional learning with a community of practice to advance SEL toward equity and excellence in all schools. Each cohort of up to 50 district or regional SEL leaders participate in a 10-month program-engaging in workshops, mentorship, coaching consultancies, and more.
Key benefits of the experience include:
- Build capacity for SEL leadership
- Create or enhance an SEL action plan
- Develop a Capstone project
- Join a community of practice
- Influence nationwide SEL adoption
Your time with us will include:
- Cohort Learning Community
- Peer Inquiry Circles
- Journey Trios
- CASEL Mentor
- Expert Guidance
- Learning Hub platform
- Superintendent Engagement
- Alumni network
