Extension > Center for Youth Development Update

The next Center for Youth Development symposium will be on Tuesday, May 6 and will feature Gil Noam of Harvard University and Kimberly Schonert-Reichl from the University of British Columbia. This event is part of our symposium series dedicated to understanding social and emotional learning and its contribution to closing the achievement and opportunity gaps.

Explore what communities have actually done to measure youth more holistically and how they've used data at the neighborhood, school and program level to enhance social and emotional learning. This symposium is not about what to measure, but about the opportunities that emerge when measuring social and emotional learning, as well as strategies for addressing the challenges that arise.

This symposium is part of a 2-day summit (May 5-6) emerging from our Understanding to Action initiative with Youthprise. Stay tuned for more information about specific content and audiences for both days.
