Two New Reasons to Visit y4y.ed.gov
The U.S. Department of Education is happy to announce two new offerings on the You for Youth website:
You can complete the online Family Involvement course in less than an hour, or about 10 minutes a day for one week. You’ll get a certificate of completion as well as ideas and resources to support stronger relationships with students’ families. Forging strong links can help students overcome challenges that have kept them from active involvement with school staff. As you know, good relationships usually don’t happen by chance. The Family Involvement course includes videos, activities, research and practical tips you can put to use right away.
The Exchange is now live! There you’ll find opportunities for interactive discussions with peers and experts through webinars, discussion boards and resource sharing. Use these tools to exchange ideas about creating and implementing effective program practices aligned with You for Youth professional development courses. We can truly support one another toward improved programming through this network. Become an active part of the Y4Y online community!
And Remember . . .
The You for Youth website is available 24/7. It includes resources you can use to orient staff members new to the 21st CCLC program, video discussion guides to jump-start ideas for applying what you learn and much more. Also available are online professional development courses on project-based learning, aligning with the school stay, STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), and strengthening partnerships.
