How Out-of-School Time Programs Help Youth Excel - Wednesday, October 17, 2018 @ Noon

Learn how implementing an experiential learning model in STEM experiences that focus on social and emotional learning (SEL) helps youth excel. Research has demonstrated that sustained and well-integrated SEL engages youth and improves their achievement. You will leave this webinar with activities you can use to engage youth in SEL through STEM experiences, and resources from Click2SciencePD to train staff and volunteers to develop these two competencies:

  • Facilitating Inclusive Learning Environments: This competency helps professionals develop strategies for designing activities for the social and emotional safety and development of youth in their programs and know how to respond to inequities when they occur.
  • Encouraging Collaborative STEM Work: This competency helps professionals develop strategies to facilitate collaborative and interaction in learning experiences, and support youth in developing the skills to be effective collaborators.

Talent Development Starts with a Service Year​​ - Wednesday, November 14, 2018, noon - 1:15pm

National Service is a solution for talent development. Even as the economy recovers, unemployment among young adults remains double that of the general population.

While rarely recognized as such, service years are a form of talent development well-suited to young adults — a kind of “civic apprenticeship” that combines work-based learning and career development with a motivating social purpose. Service year programs take many forms and engage many different populations. For example, they may target Opportunity Youth or college graduates, transitioning veterans or college students testing out a field. They may include opportunities to earn specific credentials, or provide informal pathways into careers. Yet, almost all service year programs enable service year corps members to develop essential workplace skills valued by employers, including communications, critical thinking, collaboration, creativity, and cultural competency. If participating in a year of service was available to more people and used widely as a strategy for talent development, it could dramatically increase employment opportunities for young Americans.

This webinar will illustrate the role of national service in supporting talent development in the United States and provide tools to organizations to start intentionally building service year programs. The webinar will feature a program, alumni, and employment specialist to build the case for service as a talent development pipeline. Attendees will walk away with concepts and resources demonstrating how service is a strategy for talent development, and learn strategies for increasing the quality of programs.

Presenters Include:

  • MacArthur Antigua, Senior Director, Alumni Engagement and Cross-Sector Partnerships, Public Allies
  • Ben Duda, Managing Director, Corps Members & Alumni, Service Year Alliance
  • Jessica Graham, Strategic Partnerships, Inclusion & Collaboration, Cisco
  • Human Resources Professional, TBA
  • Moderator - Betsy Brand, Executive Director, American Youth Policy Forum
