Join us for the Area 2 SEL Hub's second annual "2024 SEL Symposium: Toolkit for the Heart and Mind"! Get ready for an unforgettable day filled with inspiration, knowledge, and connection as we dive deep into social-emotional learning (SEL) strategies to support the heart and mind of every learner. Our keynote speakers, the dynamic duo of education and humor, Gerry Brooks and Jason Kotecki, will kick off the event, with Gerry in the morning and Jason in the afternoon.

We know that you need practical SEL strategies and solutions to take back to your schools and classrooms.  For each session you attend, you'll leave with a new tool carefully selected for its potential impact and applicability. This symposium offers a diverse range of opportunities for growth and learning, including 12 breakout sessions led by experts in the field of SEL. Additionally, enhance your learning experience with 5 engaging lunch and learn sessions. 

But wait, there's more! After a morning of learning and networking, treat yourself to an afternoon of wellness activities designed to rejuvenate your mind, body, and spirit. There's something for everyone to unwind and recharge.

Register now and join us for a day of inspiration, growth, and empowerment! Event will take place from 8:30 am - 4:15 pm at the Embassy Suites in Rockford, IL with check-in starting at 7:30 am. While we are still working on details, we want to offer the best price possible to early registrants at our Groundfloor pricing tier.
