Webinar | Empatico: A Platform for Empathy

Date
Jun 19, 2019 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Description

Wondering how to incorporate more social and emotional learning in your program? Empatico is a new, free tool for educators working with 6-11 year-old youth that helps students build empathy by connecting young people to communities and cultures that are very different from their own. The platform is easy to use, and interactions are built around your schedule. Through a combination of live video and activities, youth have the opportunity to connect and with others that come from very different backgrounds to find common ground through meaningful conversations that spark curiosity, kindness, and empathy. Join the Afterschool Alliance for the conversation!

Speakers:

  • Erick Roa, Partnerships Manager, Empatico
  • Eliana Kanefield, Partnerships Coordinator, Empatico
  • Erin Hegarty, Afterschool Alliance
