Preparing Youth to Thrive: Methodology and Findings from the SEL Challenge
The SEL Challenge Technical Report, Preparing Youth to Thrive: Methodology and Findings from the SEL Challenge, highlights the methodology and findings of the two year SEL Challenge study. The SEL Challenge was designed in pursuit of two ambitious goals: to identify promising practices for building SEL skills with vulnerable adolescents, and to develop technical supports for use of these SEL practices at scale in thousands of OST settings. The study design included a qualitative methodology, expert practitioners, and performance studies at each of eight exemplary programs. The products of the Challenge – standards for SEL practice and the suite of SEL performance measures – are designed to help OST programs focus deeply on SEL practice, assess their strengths, and improve the quality and effectiveness of their services using a lower stakes continuous improvement approach.
