Social Emotional Learning

Bring Social Emotional Learning to Your Organization

We’re spreading our WINGS across America.

As part of our mission to reach as many kids as possible with high-quality social emotional learning we are committed to spreading our WINGS far and wide. We wish we could provide WINGS to every child in need. Instead we are expanding our reach by empowering others to use social emotional learning best practices and through partnership projects with like-minded organizations.

Our Workshops, Partner Projects, and Resources are for youth-serving organizations and schools that want to integrate social emotional learning into their program time. We provide consultation, training, and technical assistance for districts, schools, and youth-serving organizations who are ready to take a comprehensive approach to embedding social emotional learning in the afterschool time, school day, or both. Together, we can help kids soar!

A Comprehensive Approach

Not all social emotional learning programs are equal. We take a comprehensive approach by fostering a positive culture and climate, extensive training, integrating social emotional learning through all activities, and explicit curriculum to develop skills across the five social emotional learning core competencies. Our approach is backed by rigorous external evaluation and can be used in tandem with other focus areas such as art, STEM, or Common Core.

With more than 21 years operating programs, we know a thing or two about what it takes. You have to live it before you can teach it. In order for children to best develop social emotional competence they need to interact with teachers and mentors who model the competencies through their own behaviors and teaching practices. That’s why our approach starts with adult skills and practices. Once the adults comprehend and internalize these skills, they are then able to transfer their skills and knowledge in their capacity as educators and mentors.

Workshops

Empowering Others with Social Emotional Learning Best Practices

To empower youth workers and organizations with the knowledge and skills to strengthen their own programming with social emotional learning, WINGS has designed interactive and engaging professional development sessions using best practices and our research based approach to social emotional learning and behavior management.

Our workshops cover instructional techniques to boost youth social emotional learning and provide practical and easy-to-use tools applicable to any environment. These sessions are beneficial for full- and part-time staff who work with youth of all ages.

Partner Projects

Working Together to Help Kids Soar

Social emotional learning can be integrated into any type of program activity—during the school day or in afterschool programs. We help organizations implement and build capacity for social emotional learning initiatives that are high-quality and high impact. We work closely with districts, schools, nonprofits, and community based organizations to create comprehensive initiatives through a proven instructional model, social emotional learning platform, and powerful professional development. In every Partner Project we share our expertise and resources to guide you step-by-step through design, implementation, and sustainability.

Partner Project engagements are typically two to three years in length and address. Throughout each phase we work in partnership with you to determine how to integrate social emotional learning into your culture, work with teachers individually and in groups to incorporate new practices, and weave social emotional learning into daily interactions with students.

Services Included:
  • Planning and Design: Readiness assessment, consultation, project design and scope of work.
  • Professional Development: Engaging training sessions to ensure competency, confidence, and success.
  • Implementation Resources: Multi-day kick off, coaching, online resource center, and consultation to operationalize components and practices.
  • Evidence-Based Curriculum and Materials: Time-tested, practical, and easy-to-use materials applicable for new educators as well as those with extensive teaching experience.
  • Quality and Effectiveness: Tools to monitor implementation and ongoing quality, as well as resources for assessing how the initiative is achieving intended results.
