21stCCLC Virtual Regional Trainings: Supporting Afterschool in a Time of Virtual Learning

This training will explore how to bring the heart of your afterschool program to virtual programming. We’ll discuss how to determine the current needs of students and their families, develop strategies to meet those needs, and examine how to build connections online through the use of routine and program structures. Participants will be encouraged to actively participate in meaningful discussions with their colleagues.

If you are unable to send the required two staff members to any of the trainings, you must obtain PDE approval to make any substitutions with other trainings.

Grantees must send two representatives to the following each grant year:
