The benefits of social/emotional learning (SEL) cannot be denied. In fact, studies have shown that students who have SEL as part of their curriculum are higher achieving, better behaved and have more positive relationships with the adults in their lives. This course is designed for educators, social workers, health professionals, and/or anyone else interested in integrating Social and Emotional Learning and secular mindfulness in their individual school or workplace environments. Over the course of 3 sessions, participants will have garnered the skills and knowledge needed to successfully implement Mindfulness Without Borders’ (MWB) Mindfulness Ambassadors Program, in both youth and adult populations. Learners are eligible to receive a Mindfulness Ambassador Program Facilitator certification from Mindfulness without Borders.

"What I wholeheartedly loved is that both instructors always made the workshop so warm, comfortable, and most importantly, safe. At times I would feel that I am saying the wrong things or not being articulate. Never have they made me or anyone from the group feel different. Thank you to both!" - Anonymous Facilitator Certification Participant
