Josie is the Social-Emotional Learning Coordinator at Project Adventure. She is interested in effective teaching methods and how to foster healthy learning environments and communities. When not working she loves playing with her dog Daphne, growing interesting plants, and discovering new board games.


This workshop is for educators who wish to support their students’ social and emotional development. Participants will experience a wide range of adventure-based, SEL-linked activities. They will explore strategies for applying adventure concepts to align and integrate the diverse social and emotional learning initiatives in their school or organization.

  • Participate in adventure activities that support the implementation of social and emotional learning (SEL) strategies while supporting academic content.
  • Gain information and insight into theory, research results, and components associated with the most effective approaches to SEL programming.
  • Develop instructional skills for specific SEL content areas such as goal setting, decision making, managing emotions, and engaging in social relationships.
  • Explore best practices for creating and evaluating a relationship-centered school or community agency.
