Partner Spotlight: Center for Schools and Communities

Spreading SEL, Together

Professional Development and Technical Assistance


New this fall, WINGS has partnered with The Center for Schools and Communities to provide on-going professional development and technical assistance opportunities for the education agencies, community-based organizations, and state and local departments they serve. The Center’s mission is to help clients increase their knowledge, awareness, and skills by providing high-quality professional development opportunities, research and evaluation design, and customized consultation working with Pennsylvania’s statewide afterschool network of providers and a variety of important funders like the Mott Foundation, Heinz Endowment and more.

As SEL experts, The Center hired WINGS to conduct three trainings this year:

  1. Understanding Social Emotional Learning and How to Support, Engage, and Teach Kids
  2. Building a Culturally Responsive Classroom
  3. Behavior Management and Positive Reinforcement
