Morningside Center provides professional development for staff, including both off-site training and on-site coaching on SEL and the CREW curriculum.
Site directors and group leaders implementing CREW report that students become more confident, mature and more respectful of one another, develop positive friendships and evidence better rapport with adults. One director reported: “Students said CREW gave them the opportunity to share, to know that someone cared. They learned it’s okay to be yourself.” “One student actually said, ‘We are learning life skills.’”
The program currently serves staff from after-school programs run by a range of NYC nonprofits, including CAMBA, Good Shepherd, Community Counseling and Mediation, and the Greater Ridgewood Youth Council.
If you are exploring ways to bring engaging, effective SEL programming to your NYC middle-school after-school program, please contact: Doris Lo at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212-870-3318 x37.
