The purpose of this course is to provide educators and out-of-school time professionals activities and inspiration to create an environment where the children and students in their care can thrive. Before children even begin their day with us, we have no idea how their morning or home life has had an effect on their behavior or mental mindset. We have the ability to positively effect each one of these children and give them a space where they feel comfortable, confident and where they can ask questions and be heard.
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 activite their programs to be a place for youth voice and meaningful engagement. Daniel Hatcher will present easy to try ideas that will help get yourself and your staff in the mindset of the children in your program. You will not only walk away with three ideas to try, but also the encouragement to reconnect and reflect on the purpose of your program. The presenter in this webinar is Daniel Hatcher, the National Out-of-School Time Advisor for the Alliance for Healthier Generation.
This course will help educators, administrators and professionals that work with children address Social Emotional Learning, a huge part of helping our children to be confident so that they can succeed in life.
