Limited Capacity seats available

In this workshop, facilitated by Melina O’Grady, we will explore aspects of youth development that most impact our Out-of-School-Time field. We will discuss and develop an understanding of:  What are the developmental challenges for pre-adolescents? How can programs be sure they are supporting increased competency? How can programs determine if youth are struggling to meet developmental milestones, and what can programs do to increase youth competency and foster success?

Learning Goals:
  • Understand five aspects of the K-5 development continuum: physical, cognitive, moral, emotional, self-concept;
  • Reflect on the importance of relationships in shaping a child's growth; and
  • Practice mapping a child's developmental edges and designing growth-promoting experiences.

  • Ability to identify five aspects of K-5 development
  • Experience in identifying development edges and growth-promoting experiences
  • Next steps for deepening your youth development understanding and professional practice
