Maybe. Generally speaking, we consider anyone working with children in groups to be educators, whether your background is in youth work, positive youth development, school psychology or counseling, social work, students assistance, and related fields. We value interest in social-emotional learning and character development from individuals in all fields, and we have designed our program for educators who can affect change within their schools and classrooms. While our admission requirements for SEL101 alone are least stringent because many can benefit from an overview of the field, individuals will not be eligible to earn a certificate until they can successfully complete a practicum, which requires implementation of an intervention in a school, classroom, or after-school setting.
