Social and emotional learning (SEL) helps students build skills, habits and mindsets that provide a critical foundation for success in school and life. When SEL is effectively integrated into classroom practice, students understand how to manage emotions, set goals, empathize with others, establish positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.

NAESP works to advance social-emotional learning programs that help achieve positive academic, interpersonal, and mental health outcomes for students.
