Youth Services

Integrate SEL into Your Programs

Frameworks of Tampa Bay is a nonprofit organization that empowers educators, youth services professionals, and parents and guardians through training, coaching, and research-based resources to equip students with social and emotional skills.

In addition to partnering with schools, Frameworks supports youth-serving organizations in integrating social and emotional learning (SEL) into their programs and practices.

Our partners include multiple youth-serving organizations, including mentor organizations and organizations offering out-of-school-time programs.

This workshop helped get my juices flowing and to begin thinking of my own emotional intelligence—what do I not think about on a regular [basis] to help me improve as a human being personally and professionally.

Community Workshop Participant

Facilitators did a really great job, especially presenting the content virtually. I believe they made everyone feel comfortable and moved at a good pace. The information was relevant, clear and helpful.

Youth Mentor Workshop Participant

I learned that it is imperative to be intentionally positive when dealing with the students. Practicing what I preach is the key.
