Social Emotional Learning (SEL), as defined by the Collaborative for Academic Social Emotional Learning, is the process through which children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.
SEL is not a single program or teaching method but an integrated approach across classrooms, schools, districts, homes & communities. SEL is emerging as a KEY INDICATOR OF STUDENT SUCCESS in life and learning.
The work of the AddyPres organizations advocates for and supports CASEL recommended SEL frameworks as a powerful tool that can build positive life skills and better prepare ALL CHILDREN for the world they are being handed NOW. Our organization offers high level introductory & awareness resources, supports evidence based training & programs and provides sustained support for real world opportunities that prepare & enrich 21st century learners through SEL opportunities. Our mission is to connect family, education, community & commerce creating a BETTER world for PEOPLE & PLANET.
