NIOST Summer Seminar on Links to Learning

The National Institute on Out-of-School Time is holding its annual Summer Seminars in Boston this July and there are three new workshops for afterschool professionals. YouthLearn Director Tony Streit is co-facilitating, with Dishon Mills, the seminar on Links to Learning for Middle School Programs, which will be held Monday-Tuesday, July 9-10, 2007, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. This training is geared towards those who serve middle school youth, though the framework for Links to Learning works for all age groups. It's designed to help educators find ways to make their afterschool program connect to the school day.

The other summer seminars include: Intensive Seminar for System Builders and Organizational Development Tools for Strategic Thinking & Planning.
