The Month of March Is SEL Awareness Month!

We are so excited for all of the things we have planned for the month of March to spread as much awareness about SEL to all communities in South Carolina. Stay tuned for our events and follow our social medias and join us to keep up to date!  
Here are our goals for this month and how you can get involved:


“Social Emotional Learning is foundational. SEL is the lens through which we implement lessons, design assessments, and create policy. It is the lens through which we lead." Sarah Gams, SC Teacher of the Year 2021

Top of Mind: First 100 Days. 


Educators across the country already recognize the importance of SEL, which was underscored by the challenges of the past year. So it is no surprise that policy leaders are including SEL in their “big ideas” for the next administration’s education agenda. 

March 26 is International SEL Day

The Urban Assembly and SEL4US invite communities across the globe to celebrate the importance of social emotional learning (SEL) on the second annual International SEL Day on March 26, 2021. Our theme this year is Building Bonds, Reimagining Community. 


As we move into a new year, there is an opportunity for innovation that can last beyond the pandemic and carry us forward if we continue to harness the power of SEL toward meaningful, equitable action. Join our network to be up to date on all things SEL and see how you can make a difference in conjuction with us. 
“So much of how we interact with our world is rooted in relationships. Children – beginning with the very young – must feel, learn, and develop meaningful, healthy relationships with their peers, their families, their teachers, and with themselves for successful life-long learning.” - Tom Hudson, Executive Director Of SC School Improvement Council
