This year, SEL Student Ambassadors in middle and high school will have the opportunity to participate in a series of four SEL Student Leadership summits. The 2021-22 series will teach students how to lead a campus-wide project using principles of Design Thinking to plan and execute campus-wide practices that promote greater self-efficiency. This experience is designed to foster student leadership that will ultimately support the entire student population of each participating campus, provide student leadership opportunities, and support overall SEL implementation on participating campuses using the theme “I dream a world…”.
