Deepening the focus on social and emotional learning in the Teen Outreach Program® influences staff practices and accelerates outcomes for youth
Wyman recently released a case study titled “Deepening the Teen Outreach Program Focus on Social and Emotional Learning (SEL): A Case Study of Curriculum and Training Revision and Early Impact.” The case study highlights perspectives from TOP partners about the impact of the revisions on teens, adults, and systems, along with our own internal learning about the curriculum and training revision process. The lessons learned and recommendations from the case study will be of interest to youth practitioners and partner organizations that currently implement TOP, as well as to the broader fields of child and youth development, social and emotional learning, curriculum and program development, evidence-based programming, and implementation science.
Social-emotional learning is a springboard for success.
In conjunction with Chicago’s Susan Crown Exchange (SCE), Wyman is pleased to announce the release of a one-of-a-kind field guide called Preparing Youth to Thrive: Promising Practices in Social and Emotional Learning. A product of collaboration between SCE, eight youth-focused programs across the nation, and the David P. Weikart Center for Youth Program Quality, the piece sheds light on how afterschool programs can equip teens with valuable social and emotional skills.
Collaborative learning drives improvements in practice.
Our 2016 resource titled, “Implementing the Teen Outreach Program with Special Populations: Lessons Learned from Seven Youth-Serving Organizations” has been created for organizations that are implementing, or interested in implementing TOP with young people in special circumstances.
The resource includes program profiles and implementation guidance based on the collective experiences of our network partners who are using TOP to address the needs of special populations of youth in a variety of settings.
Wyman’s National Network of youth-serving organizations replicates teen-centered evidence based programs and engage in high quality adult training services. Programs implemented by National Network Partners positively impact the lives of over 25,000 teens each year.CONTACT US
