Extracurricular Clubs Expand SEL and Soft Skills Opportunities

Education dive features PACE research that address the needs and opportunities for social emotional learning (SEL) to include the role of clubs and other after-school activities that help to broaden and extend social-emotional skills such as empathy and communication.

The 2018 PACE report examined how schools in CORE (California Office to Reform Education) school districts put SEL practices into play, finding that schools often had “clubs that promoted kindness among students, that specifically encouraged members to reach out to lonely students, or that mediated peer conflict”.
