"Our Middle division program has grown exponentially over the time we've collaborated. To witness the activity at the faculty meeting where our faculty responded to your statements along the continuum, strongly indicated, in the most graphic ways, the degree to which they have positively responded to our work together. Clearly the majority of our faculty feel overwhelmingly more confident and positive in their advisory role and in the classroom."
- Wendy Jo
Horace Mann School
The SEL Leadership Program supports leaders and educators around the world to build and sustain an inclusive, equitable, SEL-rooted school community.
This program is experiential, inspiring, and renewing - providing a balance of high impact practical tools and approaches, alongside space for collaboration and reflection.
As a cohort, members of the SEL Leadership Program will work closely for seven months to support each other, share ideas, and offer a critical space for problem solving and planning.
If I have done an IFSEL online training, will I get something out of an in-person workshop?
Our in-person workshops offer comprehensive, experiential, intentionally-designed SEL professional development. The depth and richness of the overall experience is different from our shorter online courses. Some elements of our online courses are included in the Workshop content.
A sample schedule can be found here.
