YouthLearn Updates,  January 03, 2005

Announcing the new Afterschool Academies, limited opportunity!

With the support of the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, the YouthLearn team has been working with other key partners in the field of afterschool to design an exciting new professional development offering for launch in the new year. This offering, the Afterschool Teaching Institute (ASTI), will be a three-day intensive training in developing content-rich afterschool curriculum. YouthLearn has been integrally involved in creating the materials, and we'll also be on the training team leading the sessions. These will run concurrently with the Beyond School Hours Conference put on by Foundations, Inc. in Atlanta, Georgia from February 16-19, 2005. Please see the announcement below for more detailed information.

This intensive training is free to Beyond School Hours attendees, but there are only 60 spaces--so sign up asap! If you have any questions about the ASTI or our other work on the Afterschool Academies, please send an email to We're hoping that the YouthLearn community will be well-represented at this event!


The Afterschool Teaching Institute, is an exciting new opportunity offered for afterschool professionals at the Foundations, Inc. annual Beyond School Hours VIII conference in Atlanta, GA, February 16-19, 2005. The ASTI is a 3 day intensive sequence that lays the foundations for skilled afterschool teaching, with sessions on youth development principles, linking standards to school day content, hands-on experiential teaching techniques, and planning for deliberate learning. Designed for supervisors, directors, trainers, and others who shape the teaching of afterschool staffs, the Institute will equip participants with the tools and techniques for staff development back home.

We would love to see you in Atlanta at the ASTI at Beyond School Hours. Register for the conference, and there is NO ADDITIONAL FEE. ACT QUICKLY. Attendance is limited to 60 participants. For more information, download the brochure and registration form, visit the Foundations, Inc. website or call Foundations at (856)-533-2701.
