Sponsor: In today’s challenging times, we know how critical it is to make sure kids are equipped with social and emotional learning skills to cope with the world around them. That’s why I’m excited to highlight the WE Schools Program, made possible by The Allstate Foundation. It brings social and emotional learning together with service-learning, helping children build key skills such as resilience, empathy, perseverance and problem-solving. Whether you’re an educator looking for ways to integrate SEL into your lesson planning, or a parent looking to support your kid’s remote learning at home, go to WE.org/SEL for helpful educational resources and tips. Our friends at The Allstate Foundation and WE are committed to providing you with the resources you need to get started.
