Thanks to funding provided by the NH Bureau of Child Development and Head Start Collaboration, ACROSS NH is pleased to announce the launch of the Social and Emotional Learning Project. The Project is focused on supporting the afterschool community in developing and enhancing Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) in out-of-schooltime programs. The Project will provide various resources, including professional development training, series, cohorts, consultation, and other SEL supportive resources.


Two guides were developed for the NH afterschool and out-of-schooltime community: "A Guide to Social and Emotional Learning for the Afterschool Professional," and "A Suspension and Expulsion Prevention Guide for New Hampshire Afterschool Programs." Both downloadable guides can be found below. These resources have been created collaboratively by Abigail Blodgett, ACROSS NH SEL Project Coordinator, and Eric Mann, SEL Consultant of SERESC, Inc., the NH Afterschool Suspension and Expulsion Prevention Task Force, and ACROSS NH master trainers and consultants.


ACROSS NH will provide training and Technical Assistance (TA) to support the understanding and implementation of SEL policy and curriculum in afterschool programs. To request SEL TA, call us at (603) 206-6848 or email us at

Here is What Participants Said About Last Year's Cohort:


“This was an amazing course and very eye opening. I think I could probably take this multiple times and come away with something new and different each time.”


“I was truly honored to be part of this first SEL training series. The series was well-planned and each session was exceptional.”


“This was one of the best classes I have ever taken. It was full of relevant content. Participants were engaged in the classes. Concepts learned were easily put into practice. It was professionally presented.”

This cohort is free. Register on Eventbrite by October 21st.
