Equitable Practices in Afterschool - Begins November 2
This cohort will provide a deeper dive into language, assumptions, and practices that can reinforce a welcoming, inclusive environment for youth and families. We will explore together the meaning of key concepts and strategies in order to reinforce positive connections with youth, families, and our communities as a whole. Participants will learn and discuss along peers in these 6 sessions:
- Introduction to Equity, Diversity, Race and Inclusion in Afterschool
- Looking at Inequitable Systems in the Educational System
- Practicing Cultural Humility and Cultural Competence in Afterschool
- Building Stronger Relationships with Youth and Families in Afterschool
- Asset-Based Approach to Culturally Sustaining Instruction in Afterschool
- Assessing and Transforming your Afterschool Program
