This pilot of one of the Weikart Center’s new workshops to support cognitive development as part of SEL. Participants will explore ways to help foster initiative in young people by promoting a learning mindset as they undertake projects and activities. We will practice fostering growth mindset to help youth persevere when they struggle, and explore strategies that staff can use to support them. Participants will identify nuances for how these strategies may apply to work with the youth they work with.
