what is sel?
According to the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL), it is the process through which we apply the skills and attitudes necessary to manage and understand our emotions, set and achieve goals, show empathy, make decisions, and maintain positive relationships with others.
what are the benefits?
Social emotional learning
According to CASEL, researched SEL initiatives have demonstrated immediate and long-term effects on the growth and well-being of students. Students who experience a strong SEL influence in their schools often:
Perform better academically
Demonstrate better classroom behavior (& have fewer conduct issues)
Can better manage stress
Demonstrate more positive social attitudes and behaviors (including teamwork & empathy)
Have less emotional distress
Experience a more positive learning environment & social climate
Feel more prepared for life
Instead of relying on the K-12 school system to integrate the necessary SEL curriculum to benefit the well-being of our students, Enjoy Life Education’s Leadership Academy directly provides teens with the tools to lead a happy and successful life.
