Social Emotional Learning (SEL) is proven to equip kids with the personal and interpersonal skills that they need to succeed in school, career, relationships, and life. But is this approach powerful and accessible enough to counter the challenges confronting every family today? 

In observance of Our SEL Day Webinars, our panel of parent experts discuss SEL’s abilities to address all types of families and their challenges. Parents can learn how to build your social emotional intelligence and that of your kids and face any challenge.

We believe emotional wellness starts with empathy and understanding. This webinar, run by young people for young people, is to remind us that we are all experiencing a mental and emotional journey at this stage in our life that can be confusing, scary, challenging and exciting to navigate. 

This webinar is about you and issues you likely face. Not about the speakers, not another lecture. We want you to feel heard in your story and inspired by others. Navigating our emerging adulthood isn’t always easy, but we don’t have to go at it alone,
