Participants are REQUIRED TO ATTEND ALL TRAININGS in the series and create and try out tailored activities in between trainings.    

 

Today’s families are busier than ever before. The demands of modern life can make it difficult for parents to stay fully involved in their children’s education. Yet, studies have shown that parent involvement is one of the biggest predictors of student success. Family engagement has a life-long impact on the lives of youth and is a critical part of any effort to engage and empower teens. So how can you increase connection with families and involve them more fully in their children’s efforts in your out-of-school time program? This powerful training series provides the answer. While exploring the challenges of raising a family in modern society, you will learn how to improve your connection with families and increase their involvement with their teens and your program. You will also gain key principles and strategies to help you build a strong platform for effective family engagement.   

 

Please note: Only afterschool practitioners working with middle school youth should register for this training. 

 

Upon successful completion of this training series and follow-up assignment(s), the participant will earn 8 clock hours (.8 CEUs) of training.
