General Session: Planning for Continuous Improvement and Implementing Activities with Fidelity – 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. ET

Planning for Continuous Improvement

Calling all 21st CCLC program leaders! Join the U.S. Department of Education’s Y4Y Technical Assistance Team as we demonstrate how to use the continuous improvement cycle to jumpstart your program.  This workshop will be entirely interactive – you’ll leave with a plan for defining your program and applying the continuous improvement cycle to your schedule. We’ll explore a variety of tools available from Y4Y that can support programs to gather data, understand student and community needs and evaluate the success of programs. You’ll leave this session empowered to evaluate and improve your 21st CCLC program using evidence-based practices.

Implementing Activities with Fidelity

How can you ensure that your activities aren’t just fun and educational, but also help to meet your goals? Join the U.S. Department of Education’s You for Youth (Y4Y) Technical Assistance Team to learn how to write activity goals and plans effectively before executing them so that students learn and grow. We’ll explore ways to adhere to your plan and deliver high quality instruction as well as techniques to assess student attendance and engagement. Implementing activities with fidelity is the key to improving student outcomes and becoming better instructors.

Bullying is still one of the most pressing issues facing our youth, affecting individuals across ethnicity, gender, grade, and socioeconomic status. Bullying can have serious health consequences. One of the best tools for decreasing the problems associated with bullying is to implement evidence-based prevention strategies that address bullying at the schoolwide, classroom, individual and community levels.

In this era of digital connection and communication, educators and students are facing many challenges such as increased time spent online at younger ages. This interactive presentation will explore some of the complexities of educating, supporting and connecting with youth in today’s world. The presenters will navigate the areas of cyberbullying, online safety and digital citizenship.
