AHA!  breaks records in teaching social and emotional learning to 17 female teenagers.

Through the Susan Crown Exchange- AHA! was chosen out of 250 applicants, along with 7 other nationwide agencies,  to receive a year long research grant to study our effectiveness in imparting social and emotional learning skills. The AHA! study focused on young women and “RELATIONSHIP SKILLS” in an original AHA! curriculum.  The  Weikart research study concluded that AHA! had hit it out of the park in terms of statistically proven results on the following social and emotional learning domains: EMPATHY, RESPONSIBILITY, TEAMWORK, PROBLEM SOLVING, EMOTION MANAGEMENT, and INITIATIVE.

On January 25th 2016 AHA! joins fellow organizations to launch PREPARING YOUTH TO THRIVE: PROMISING PRACTICES IN SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL LEARNING

This youth guide sheds new light on how afterschool programs can equip teens with valuable social and emotional skills; skills that have been statistically linked to success in school, the workforce, and overall wellbeing.

Starting January 25th go to www.selpractices.org to see the guide.
