Senior SEL Programming

The Senior SEL Program is designed for students ages 12-18. It includes a comprehensive curriculum with 50 hours of activities to choose from as well as a Journal to reinforce key SEL concepts in the day-to-day and bridge important conversations that promote student success with the home environment.

Captains & Poets’ curriculum is directly aligned to CASEL’s 5 competencies which are designed to “educate the heart and inspire the mind.” The Primary SEL Curriculum includes an Introductory Module to set out key concepts, and an Extension Module including further SEL and Identity related concepts.

Self-Awareness | Connection | Inclusion & Belonging | Leadership

Homeroom, Form & Advisory Programs

Homeroom and Form Classes are an ideal opportunity to sustain key concepts and competencies from the Captains & Poets program and to integrate well-being and self-awareness into regular routines. This program can be run in parallel with the full curriculum or on its own. There are a variety of modules available with topics ranging from life skills to mindfulness, self-awareness, character development, and inclusion and belonging. Each lesson includes multiple activities to choose from so that it can be customized to your school schedule, the allotted class time and the needs of the group. Start with one module or create your own custom package to engage students in meaningful ways throughout the term or year!

Student Mentoring Programs

Mentoring Programs are a great way to establish a Captains & Poets school culture and ignite transformation from students, themselves. Each program is customized to address target themes in your school to support engagement, contribute to a more positive culture, and elevate leadership capabilities in the school. Mentoring Programs can be aligned to our Workshop offerings or implemented separately. Older students can be trained to deliver aspects of the Captains & Poets program to younger students and to act as role models and mentors to foster connection on the playground, in classrooms, and throughout the school year. Participants are engaged in the planning and design of their mentorship model to inspire a sense of agency and leadership in the school environment.

On the Stage

Kick off your Captains & Poets program with an inspiring talk that sets your implementation up for success! Our Keynote Speakers are experts in our program and model authentic self-leadership and the strength that is found in vulnerability. They take an interactive approach to bring key concepts to life in relatable ways and help create a more safe and inclusive space to explore the Captain and Poet in everyone. We will collaborate with you to design a session that engages staff, students and/or parents and aligns to school priorities and messaging.
