Building Strong Minds Through SEL
Social Emotional skills have been proven to have long lasting impacts on children. In fact, there have been shifts in the implementation of these skills in not only schools, but also the workplace. Research shows that non-cognitive skills and attributes such as team work, emotional maturity, empathy, and other interpersonal skills are as important as proficiency in English and mathematics.
Building Strong Minds Through Mindfulness
Mindfulness can contribute directly to the development of cognitive and performance skills and executive function. It can help young people pay greater attention, be more focused, think in more innovative ways, use existing knowledge more effectively, improve working memory, and enhance planning, problem solving, and reasoning skills.
Building Strong Minds Through Fitness
There are rising concerns about levels of physical activity, or inactivity, among young girls in particular. The ‘couch-potato’ culture has been described as becoming the defining characteristic of contemporary youth lifestyles our country. Nationally representative and longitudinal surveys among school-aged children illustrate that boys are more likely to participate in sports and physical activity compared with girls.
