2018 Promising Practices – Proven Strategies: Extra Learning Opportunities Conference
March 20-22, 2018 | Sheraton Harrisburg-Hershey Hotel, Harrisburg, PA
The conference will focus on advancing systems that support and promote collaboration and youth success and on key elements of high quality extra learning opportunities: academic achievement; child well-being and resiliency; community and family involvement; program management – policy, financing, leadership/administration, staffing and training; global learning; and research and evaluation.
These key elements will provide the backdrop for participants to learn about the development, implementation and sustainability of a vision of learning that is shared and supported by schools, youth, parents and the community at large.
All who work on behalf of children and youth in a current 21st Century Community Learning Center, including administrators, grant writers, evaluators, program directors, coordinators and staff, will find workshops to further enhance their skills and knowledge.
Please note that the conference is only open to current 21st Century Community Learning Centers grantees.
