Social Emotional Learning

Vermont Afterschool Inc. launched a state-wide pilot project in 2017 designed to enhance social-emotional competence in school-aged children. Licensed, afterschool programs were selected to receive staff support and training in implementation of the PATHS (Promoting Alternative Thinking Strategies) Curriculum. social-and-emotional-learning-core-competencies

From there, we are expanded the scope of our work to

  • Promote social and emotional competence
  • Prevent or reduce behavioral and emotional problems in young children
  • Prevent future adjustment problems through the development & integration of essential skills in emotional literacy, behavioral self-control, and problem-solving.
  • Improve the social & academic climate of the program and school.

We will be collecting data about how this program works along the way with the hopes of expanding our support of social-emotional learning in afterschool. Future efforts in our SEL project will focus on bolstering afterschool staffs’ SEL competencies, addressing adverse childhood experiences, and partnering with community stakeholders to coordinate systems of care for children and families.
