Choose Love for Out-of-School-Time Programs (Afterschool, Expanded Learning Programs)

Date:  Wednesday, February 8, 2023 

Time: 7:00 – 8:30PM EST

Cost: FREE

Facilitator Name:  Rick Rood

This spotlight webinar is for Out-of-School-Time, AfterSchool, and Expanded Learning Directors. School-Age Afterschool programs are the ideal place for students to learn the four ingredients of the Choose Love™ Social-Emotional Learning Program.  Long being the primary service point for Social-Emotional learning, Out-of-School-Time programs have the flexibility and resources to create a vibrant “miniature society” based on the fabric of CHOOSING LOVE.  Join us for tips, tricks and hacks for the implementation of the CHOOSE LOVE™ SEL Program in your afterschool / Out-of-School-Time / Expanded Learning Program (School Age).  While the workshop will be focused on K-6 afterschool programs, Middle and High school programs can easily gather the information and adapt the discussion to their own age level.

Participants will become familiar with the curriculum as it exists on the CHOOSE LOVE website

Participants will learn how to implement the CHOOSE LOVE curriculum in large and small groups, as well as with students’ families

Participants will have the opportunity to receive live feedback in creating their own custom-fit scheduling and project ideas using the CHOOSE LOVE curriculum
