Since its inception in 2011, the Social Emotional Learning Alliance for Massachusetts (SEL4MA) has pursued its mission of bringing social and emotional learning (SEL) awareness and advocacy to Massachusetts and across the nation with stunning success.
SEL4MA is the first grassroots organization in the country that brings the passion and innovation of teachers, administrators, youth development professionals, college professors, mental health providers, and others into the public arena on behalf of children’s social and emotional well-being. SEL4MA has become, through the strength of its 4,100+ members, the leading voice in Massachusetts for making SEL a strategic priority in education and throughout our communities.
Here are just a few of our accomplishments from the past several years:
Connect local SEL stakeholders to learn and share best practices
Build community and statewide awareness for SEL and its impact
Support high-quality SEL practice and professional learning
Advocate for state and local policies and funding to support SEL
