Site Leader Institute (Fall 2023)

October 10, 2023 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

- $700.00

Level up your management skills at the Site Leader Institute! Many site-level managers and directors are promoted to the job, but not given the training to succeed in the role. The Site Leader Institute covers performance management, quality improvement, and time management for afterschool professionals.

This Institute is designed for site directors, program directors, or other new site-level leaders in afterschool, summer, expanded learning, or grant-funded programs (such as Advantage After School, 21st Century Community Learning Centers, Extended School Day/School Violence Prevention, and the Empire State After-School Program).

The goal of this training is to expose new directors to the knowledge base and skill set of effective afterschool supervision and management. The training will focus on the skills and techniques of a supervisor and manager. This includes managing staff roles, supporting staff development, and addressing problems effectively. Participants will also explore techniques for managing themselves, their work, and the work of others (i.e., time management and project management skills).

In order to promote positive youth development in afterschool programs, the trainers will model and utilize those same approaches for the adult learners. Webinars will utilize the chat and polling features in order to promote engagement and critical thinking of participants. In-person trainings will use multiple grouping strategies, and various techniques for multiple learning styles, both to teach content effectively and to show supervisors methods they can use with their staff and the youth they serve.

The Site Leader Institute is an engaging and participatory event. Participants will engage with each other and with the content. This is not a passive learning experience!

All training events will be led by Professional Development Director Timothy Fowler. Read about his qualifications and experience here.
