How Education Leads to Well-Being for At-Risk Youth


On November 21, 2013, at 2:30 Eastern time, NCFY and the YMCA of the USA will be co-hosting a Twitter chat, "Develop the Future: Building Social and Emotional Skills to Promote Youth Well-Being." Using the hashtag #NCFYchat, you can join us in a discussion about how to build social and emotional well-being in young people, particularly through education opportunities.

Today we hear from Rebecca Kelley, national director of the YMCA's Achievement Gap initiative, who will be one of four YMCA represenatives involved in the chat. She spoke with us about why education and well-being are so connected, and what she hopes to gain from the conversation November 21. And don't forget to RSVP for the chat on our Facebook page.
