SEL & Character Development in Informal Learning Meet Up

What do we know about cultivating character development and social and emotional learning in young people in informal learning? 1) Youth development organizations have a long history in this work; 2) New brain science about learning is helping us thinking differently; 3) Supporting adult wellness is as important as youth; 4) Equity must be at the core of the work; and 5) You tell us! Meet Up with the Bechtel Foundation, Playworks and others to explore what works and what we could do better.
