Why is SEL important to GYLI?
GYLI promotes social and emotional learning through our unique experiential and educational programming. For more information please refer to our comprehensive 2015 SEL Report.
SEL programming is based on the understanding that the best learning emerges in the context of supportive relationships that make learning challenging, engaging and meaningful (CASEL, 2015).
A short-term goal of SEL programs is to, promote the Social and Emotional Learning Core Competencies through students’:
- Social awareness
- Relationship Skills
