Week 2 (June 7 – June 11): More than Beads, Putting Intention into Activities

Welcome back to our second week of the 50 State After School Network Re-Boot CampWe hope your first week was amazing and that you learned something new! Thank you to everyone who is continuing to participate. We have another round of amazing free workshops that we can’t wait to share with you!

This week we will be exploring how to put intention into activities. When we think of activities we think of arts and crafts, but activities should also be made to teach meaningful lessons. Some of the topics we will be discussing are: social and emotional learning, self-care, planning for fun and trauma informed programming. Most of the workshops this week are program and staff essentials. This week’s workshops will be led by our colleagues in Connecticut, Missouri, Oregon and Utah.

The SAN (Statewide Afterschool Network) Re-Boot Camp was developed in partnership with the Connecticut After School Network, Utah Afterschool Network, Maine Afterschool Network, Missouri AfterSchool Network, ACT Now! (Illinois Mott Network), Oregon ASK (Oregon Mott Network) in collaboration with the 50 State Afterschool Network.  This free program consists of a four week intensive summer virtual training series. Like many of the virtual conferences that the 50 Statewide Afterschool Networks have hosted in the past, these training sessions will help prepare programs to meet their full potential to serve the children and families in communities this summer.

We hope that you are all enjoying these incredible free workshops and have already curated ideas to make your afterschool and summer programs even more impactful. Afterschool is back in session!
