Summer Bootcamp: Get Ready for Summer Series - Monday, March 1, 2021 through Friday, March 5, 2021 @ 11am MT each day (attendees can pick and choose days)


Make sure you save the dates for NSLA’s Summer Bootcamp: Get Ready for Summer Series for program leaders and their teams, March 1-5, 2021.

NSLA won’t let COVID-19 steal the joy of summer learning and it starts with leaders like you. Program leaders and their teams are at the heart of high-quality summer learning experiences for kids across the nation and are leading the movement to make every summer count. To achieve this goal, summer learning programs must be intentionally designed, planned, and implemented to support the whole child in a safe, inclusive, high-quality experience.

The Summer Bootcamp Series will provide program leaders with the tools they need at this moment to keep kids healthy, learning, earning, and thriving through this pandemic and beyond. We’ll dive into strategies to accelerate learning, build critical partnerships, and plan successful programs with evidence-based practices relevant to any scenario of summer plans emerging this season.

Virtual Briefing: SEL Policy to Foster Connection after Trauma - Friday, March 26, 2021 @ 10:00am MT

How can federal policy support state efforts to foster positive youth skill development and overall mental health? The pre-K to Grade 12 education system has been tested in unprecedented ways over the past year, and educators, leaders, students, and their families have stepped up to the challenge in unique and innovative ways. One key lesson is the importance of centering education on social and emotional development and well-being to help students and adults navigate virtual and in-person learning, especially while working through trauma. In this briefing, students, members of Congress, and experts in child development will discuss the importance of social emotional learning (SEL) concepts and how they can be advanced through federal policy.
