SEE (Socio-Emotional and Ethical) Training

In early January our staff gathered for SEE (Socio-Emotional and Ethical) Training–a collaborative effort between Safe Passage and Mindful Guatemala. This was our 3rd in a series of 8 trainings that will continue through this year.

The SEE curriculum, developed by Emory University in Atlanta, plays a pivotal role in fostering holistic development among students, transcending traditional academic domains. By incorporating these dimensions into the classroom, educators provide students with essential life skills, such as more awareness and compassion of self and others, and better engagement.

Moreover, socio-emotional and ethical learning equips students to navigate the complexities of the modern world, promoting resilience in the face of challenges and contributing to their overall well-being.

Mindful Guatemala and Safe Passage’s teachers, social workers, and psychologists are launching a comprehensive training and implementation program of this curriculum within our learning community. Recognizing the profound impact of these skills on students, the initiative aims to equip educators with effective strategies for incorporating these vital aspects into their teaching practices.

The implementation of socio-emotional and ethical learning in the classroom will serve as a foundation for nurturing empathetic, resilient, compassionate, and engaged conscious individuals who are not only academically proficient but also well-prepared for the demands of an interconnected and diverse global community.
