What previous SEL Leadership Program participants are saying:

Christina Baudis

SEL Coordinator, Sonoma Country Day School
IFSEL's SEL Leadership Program is just what I needed to get through this year in education. They have created a safe and brave space for all of us "SEL experts" to come together to share and be heard, learn, reflect and appreciate. It's almost like we have our own adult SEL class. IFSEL has provided us with resources, engaging conversations and opportunities to network with people all over the world and this program is truly helping me become a better educator and leader in SEL.

Virginia Prairie

Director of Professional Learning, The American School in Japan
Being part of this community of learning leaders inspires me to continue to create and nurture SEL systems within my school and share ideas that might help other schools. Each time we meet, I feel a sense of renewed purpose through authentic conversations and diverse perspectives as we consider what an equitable, inclusive, student-centered school looks like, sounds like, and feels like.
