This in-depth guide to 25 evidence-based programs—aimed at elementary schools and out-of-school-time (OST) providers—offers information about curricular content and programmatic features that practitioners can use to make informed choices about their Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) efforts. The guide allows practitioners to compare curricula and methods across top SEL programs. It also explains how programs can be adapted from schools to out-of-school-time settings, such as afterschool and summer programs.
