Co-creating Justice-Centered SEL with Students

Mar 7, 2022

1:00pm – 2:30pm CT

To address the growing mental health crisis for adolescents, especially teens of color, we need to mitigate the harm from white supremacy assumptions that are built into most SEL programs and replace these programs with wellness with social justice at its core. Girls Leadership and Student Leadership Network will share their curriculum development process, based in Libratory Design, which interrupts the power dynamic of teacher and student to empower students as designers of justice-based SEL.
