Social Emotional Learning Online Resource Manuals
The Illinois AfterSchool Network and the Illinois Children’s Mental Health Partnership were funded by the Bright Promises Foundation to support the After School Parent Engagement and Social Emotional Learning Project. The collaborative project focused on providing support to After School and Family Child Care Providers through the use of mental health consultation.
It is essential that program staff and families collaborate and connect to support the social and emotional development of their youth, which leads to academic success and the development of career and life skills. The manuals offer resources, ideas and activities to support programs and families in this process. Also, we included an electronic form for program staff and families to fill out for additional resources not included in the resource manual to ensure that we have captured resources from across the state.
Special thanks for Linda Delimata (Mental Health Consultant), Tajuana Rice (Mental Health Consultant) and Julianna McHale (Program Coordinator/ICMHP), for their work on the manuals.
