Curriculum Learning objectives:

Improved Emotional Regulation Skills​

Youth may develop a greater understanding of their own emotions and learn practical strategies for managing them. This will include techniques for calming down when feeling overwhelmed or anxious, identifying triggers for emotional reactions, and communicating effectively with others about their feelings. This will be done through pre and post-surveys.

Increased Empathy and Understanding of Others

In a social-emotional mentorship, youth may be paired with individuals who have different backgrounds, experiences, or emotional needs than themselves. Through this interaction, they will develop a greater sense of empathy and understanding for others, including different cultures, identities, and perspectives.

Strengthened Decision-Making Skills

Students will learn to make responsible and ethical choices, considering the consequences of their actions on themselves and others.

Improved Academic Performance

Through increased focus, motivation, and engagement, students may demonstrate improved academic outcomes and a greater sense of academic efficacy.

Enhanced Leadership Skills

Students will develop leadership qualities such as empathy, integrity, and accountability, empowering them to positively influence their peers and community.
