TOPIC: Growth Heartset®: Establishing a Culture of Caring

SPEAKER: Stu Semigran is the co-founder and president of EduCare Foundation and the executive director of EduCare’s ACE (Achievement and Commitment to Excellence) Student Success Program. Currently providing student support services at more than 100 high schools and middle schools in Southern California, EduCare also is the grant manager for the ASSETs after school programs at 17 LAUSD Beyond the Bell high schools and 1 middle school. Over 30,000 students are served each year through EduCare afterschool and youth development programs.

With more than 35 years experience as an educator, Stu has facilitated thousands of youth, professionals, educators and parents in social and emotional learning (SEL), leadership development, dropout prevention, conflict resolution, and after school management. In 2012, Stu was recognized as a David Chow Humanitarian Award Foundation recipient for his service to youth.

MORE ABOUT THIS FORUM (FOR PROGRAMS SERVING KIDS OF ALL AGES): How do we wake up our young people to who they are and what their lives can become? What if we need to develop a new “growth heartset®” to complement and enhance a positive “growth mindset”? We may think that their minds are ready to learn, but what may not be ready are our students’ “hearts”. As Aristotle wrote, “educating the mind without educating the heart, is no education at all.” When the heart is set in a healthy and compassionate place, the mind is more open and prepared to learn.

In order to experience the benefits of Social Emotional Learning (SEL), we need to move beyond principles and curricula. How do we instill SEL in both ourselves as practitioners and in our programs’ culture so that we teach and lead by authentic example?

Come and learn skills for developing a new “growth heartset®” in our teaching and learning. This interactive session focuses on shaping successful learning environments that thrive upon a foundation infused with caring, connectivity, and proven SEL practices. Based on EduCare’s field-tested ACE Program that has reached nearly 50,000 students in the U.S. and internationally, participants learn and practice heart-centered strategies for teaching students’ self-awareness (mindfulness), emotional self-management, relationship-building, and wise decision-making skills. Included is an introduction to EduCare’s “8 Heartset® Teaching & Learning Skills”.
