The Amazing Story of Liberty Middle School Students Using 7 Mindsets: Social and Emotional Learning in North Dakota.

“Imagine a community so committed to the empowerment of youth and their cultivation of social and emotional competencies that local funders, businesses, after-school programs, parents, and schools have committed themselves to this goal. Imagine a community where adults realize that their most powerful tool for engaging youth is to model social and emotional competencies in their lives, to incorporate them into their workplaces, and to embody the idea and the dream that social and emotional competence is a foundation not just for education but for life. What we are describing is not some social and emotional learning utopia but the city of Fargo, North Dakota, and a citywide movement that started with youth voice.” [Taken from CASEL’s Feature on the 7 Mindsets in ND]
