Responsible Decision Making

Responsibible Decision Making is the ability to make responsible and respectful choices in advocacy for the community and its needs based on the well-being of the greater good, for today and the future.

How we act and interact in light of equity, safety, social norms, and ethical standards are also important parts of making informed and responsible decisions. This set of culturally responsive activities develops the SEL trait of responsible decision making.
