The 10th annual Music City SEL Conference VIRTUALLY brought together educators, youth-serving professionals, and other community leaders and stakeholders for a series of online workshops that elevated whole-child wellness and empowered all members of a community to thrive. This unique conference is designed and led BY practitioners FOR practitioners.

Over the past decade, the Music City SEL Conference has brought together more than 6000 educators, youth-serving professionals, and community partners to learn from each other how we can better create environments for children to thrive. By sharing practical knowledge and skills, valuable tools and resources, and cutting-edge research, the conference has fostered a robust community of practice with particular emphasis on schools in the Southeast.


Registration included access to two days of virtual workshops, online networking and resources. Registrants were prompted to select which workshops they wanted to participate in at the time of registration. Contact hours were provided for each workshop attended – up to 15 hours.


Educators, administrators, mental health professionals, community leaders, and other experts on social emotional learning and related topics are invited to submit proposals to present at the 2020 Music City SEL Conference.

All workshops will be reviewed by Alignment Nashville’s SEL A-Team.

The deadline for 2020 workshops submissions is closed.
