What We Offer

IFSEL Schools

Each year we design and lead a one-year Path of faculty development work for six schools. The Path is customized for each school’s needs, so SEL can be integrated fully into the education experience of all students and teachers.

Institutes

Institutes are our core experience, designed with SEL as a professional and personally transformative experience. Join a cohort of educators, administrators, and counselors from Kindergarten through 12th grade for four days of inspirational and informative sessions, collaboration, and reflection that range across a broad library of SEL topics and research. Gain experiential knowledge and resources to bring SEL to your school communities. 

SELected Sessions Conference

The SELected Sessions Conference is a one-day event that brings together nationally and internationally renowned SEL experts and presenters.

Workshops

Our Workshops offer exciting professional and personal renewal through learning experiences that engage your growth mindset and resiliency. Workshops afford opportunities for both new and experienced educators to engage with sound research and time-tested curricula resources.  Gain insight through thoughtful discussion, well-designed interactions, and the opportunity for self and group reflection.

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.

There has been a transformational change in our Lower School in just this past year as we implemented the SEL program... and I am eager to continue its growth! Particularly as we look to engage our Middle School faculty as well.... simultaneously striving to train every single Lower School faculty member. Please let me know if this would be a possibility... and what the next steps would entail.

[Thank] you and your fabulous team of [IFSEL] colleagues for hosting such an inspirational institute! I wanted to take the opportunity to be a learner and I truly was able to soak up such incredible insight and knowledge from all of those that were there… Transitioning from community mental health to a school I have really felt so privileged to have the ability to spend so much time with educators who can share such complex perspectives on working with children. The IFSEL was such an awesome bridge for me and grounding place… Thank you again!
