SEL to the Core: Building from Foundational Youth Development to Support Social and Emotional Learning
This guide is designed to supplement National AfterSchool Association (NAA) Core Knowledge and Competencies for Afterschool and Youth Development. It includes eight field-tested, research- and evidence-based practices and who, why, and how to implement these practices. These practices include competencies such as getting in touch with your own social-emotional competencies, building in coaching and reflection for continuous improvement, and providing opportunities for voice, choice, and leadership. These competencies are cross-walked with NAA core knowledge and competencies (hyperlink to: https://childcareta.acf.hhs.gov/ncase-resource-library/national-afterschool-association-naa-core-knowledge-and-competencies).
