The purpose of this course is to provide educators and out-of-school time professionals inspiration, ideas and research that supports the positive impacts of family engagement within their programs. Parents and families of our students have busy days, but being involved in the activities and education of their child is something that can have a huge effect on the success of each child and your program as a whole. This course will help you identify opportunities that will work for your families and strengthen your community.
We have designed this online course for out-of-school time professionals in before and after school, summer camps, school age or recreation programs.
This webinar course from the National AfterSchool Association was created to inspire out-of-school professionals to get families more engaged in the education and learning opportunities of their children in afterschool. Erika Petrelli, the presenter, will challenge you to think about the families in your program and how you can create a number of opportunities for them to be involved in their child's out of school time. You will walk away with a list of ideas for support materials for families, as well as activities and events you can try.
Erika Petrelli is the Sr. Vice President of Leadership Development at The Leadership Program.
