Building Community through Outdoor Activities: Teenagers During Physical Distancing

September 21 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Free

About this Webinar

As the Coronavirus impacts our lifestyles, schools are pivoting to prioritize children’s health and well-being above academic considerations. Access to the outdoors during the school day, through co-curricular activities, at home and within a community is part of a systemic approach to Social and Emotional Learning and addresses critical issues of public health.

Outdoor activities are a great way to address the five core competencies of social and emotional learning while increasing self-esteem, improving mood and reducing anxiety. This session highlights the benefits of spending time outdoors and offers a series of physically distanced activities that build Self-Management, Self-Awareness, Social Awareness, Relationship Skills and Responsible Decision Making.

What you’ll learn

At the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the benefits of outdoor time
  • Learn strategies and activities to support SEL in the outdoors
  • Know how to do an inventory of outdoor spaces for learning
  • Consider partnering or hosting an outing club for your community
