September 14, 2017 - 2:00 pm to September 14, 2017 - 3:00 pm

A strong sense of social belonging means feeling valued and accepted by others.

Social belonging has been linked to many aspects of success in school, career and adult life, including physical health, mental health, academic achievement and persistence. This webinar began with an overview of the research on social belonging, including a glimpse at the neuroscience of belonging and how it has been linked to positive outcomes among youth in diverse settings. Presenters discussed how youth program staff, educators, counselors, and mentors can practice simple exercises to promote belonging in their settings.
