Presenters: Joan Bissell, Kelly Stuart, Michael Brugh, Bob Cabeza, Jenel Prenovost, Roman Stearns, Jeff Davis
The webinar examines some of the most effective programs in California serving high school students in after-school programs and how to align them with the instructional day. The 21st Century Community Learning Centers, California’s ASSETs program, and nationally recognized models based on proven youth development principles is examined. The goal is to examine model programs ranging from academic remediation to work-based experiences and service learning to arts and sports that provide inviting experiences for high school youth and result in significant outcomes.
The presenters bring a wealth of knowledge on service- learning, utilizing the after-school space to offer engaging skill-building opportunities, credit recovering, and the Quality Self-Assessment Tool developed specifically for high schools.
This webinar is aimed at school administrators and after-school program directors and coordinators. It is the third in a three-part series presented in fall 2011 focused on facilitating conversations on the impact of after-school programs on closing achievement gaps and readying students for college and/or careers. This series is sponsored in collaboration with The California After-School Network, WestEd's Schools Moving Up, the U.S. Department of Education’s website Doing What Works, and California State University.
