The Power of SEL - Podcast Series

The Power of SEL explores social and emotional learning, otherwise known as SEL, and how it relates to wellbeing and academic achievement. In this five-part podcast series, we share insights from 13 years of partnership between Education First and the NoVo Foundation and celebrate the achievements of over 1,000 grantees. Hosted by Emily Brookhart from Education First, each episode examines why SEL matters and how it works in classrooms, schools, and districts — including practices to engage students and educators and navigate challenges. We’ll also learn together about centering equity in SEL, building consensus and coalitions, and prioritizing student and educator wellbeing as we hear from teachers, administrators, and community leaders deeply involved in SEL.
