Social and emotional learning (SEL) equips young people with competencies to lead productive and healthy lives. SEL refers to life skills that support children and adults in experiencing, managing, and expressing emotions, making sound decisions, and fostering interpersonal relationships. SEL protects against adverse risk-taking behaviors, emotional distress, and conduct problems, and contributes to health, academic achievement, and success later in life.
