“Conscious Harmony” – Using Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Techniques to Create a Safe, Healthy, Inclusive Learning Community for Your Youth Education Programs

Facilitated by Janell Renshaw – LUT and Unity Eastern Region Youth Consultant



During our webinar, we will cover the 5 basic components of Social Emotional Learning (SEL). SEL is the process through which children and adults:

  • Understand and manage emotions 
  • Set and achieve positive outcomes 
  • Feel and show empathy for others, 
  • Establish and maintain positive relationships 
  • Support responsible decisions

Ministry volunteers can support their youth in inclusive environments using social emotional learning that will support the entire community for generations.

Proverbs 4:23
Watch over your heart with all diligence, for from it flow the springs of life.
