The GameSetMatch program life-skills curriculum includes topics such as:

  • Creativity

  • Everyday Decision Making

  • Collaboration

  • Future Readiness

  • Leadership

SOCIAL & EMOTIONAL LEARNING

Social and emotional learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions. There is growing evidence showing that SEL qualities rival academic or technical skills in their ability to predict employment and earnings, among other outcomes. AYTEF utilizes Hello Insight survey platforms to assess   SEL outcomes for our youth.
