It’s never too early to plan for next summer’s 21st CCLC program!
The Y4Y Summer Learning Initiative team will present four webinars to help you follow a logical process to develop a high-quality program.
Hear directly from program directors and site coordinators across the country who implemented a similar process during the past school year. They will speak to the benefits of using an implementation planning tool to guide summer program development. All participants will receive the implementation planning tool, along with tips and advice from fellow practitioners.
The webinar series will continue to support your planning as the school year continues. Here are topic overviews:
Wednesday, December 6, 2017, Summer Showcase 2: Get tools and advice as you dive in to the first four planning steps: build a team, conduct a needs assessment, write SMART goals, and plan logistics.
Wednesday, February 7, 2018, Summer Showcase 3: Go deep into intentional activity design. Learn how to tie program activities to student needs, and get tools to support your work.
Wednesday, April 11, 2018, Summer Showcase 4: Focus on the final steps of planning: recruit the right students to attend, and use a continuous improvement process to grow staff skills and student achievement.
