Apply today to be a Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence Changemaker Fellow!

At the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence, we know that emotions matter in the classroom, in the school building, and in our communities. We believe that educators must be equipped with the skills of emotional intelligence to foster compassion, equity, and engagement in their school communities.

To elevate the importance of this work statewide, we have partnered with Ashoka Youth Ventures to create the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence (YCEI) Changemaker Fellowship. Through this 10-month experience, which starts in September 2017, Connecticut-based educators will learn the skills of emotional intelligence and join us on the frontlines of making Connecticut the first emotionally intelligent state.

Fellows will engage with their cohort of like-minded educators to collaborate, craft and ultimately implement an emotionally intelligent and contextually responsive project for their respective schools. Fellows will be supported by YCEI faculty and staff through discussions, reflection exercises, and other activities throughout their experience.

Educators, this is your opportunity to transform your ideas into action! Get more info and make sure to apply here by August 15, 2017.

If you have questions, please contact Dr. Dena Simmons.
