Summer Learning Toolkit–A Deeper Dive: Creating Site Climate and Culture -  Thursday, April 11th @ 1:30pm

Summary: Summer learning programs offer the chance for kids to stay safe and remain engaged during the out-of-school-time months and build both academic and social and emotional skills, as they explore all that your program has to offer.

Join us to learn about ways to best establish and foster a positive site climate that creates the foundation on which successful youth and staff experiences are built. We will be exploring tip sheets, sample handbooks, and other materials housed in the Summer learning Toolkit, as well as sharing out different resources collected by our organizations, to provide a cohesive set of suggestions for you as you explore how you want to structure and curate your program’s climate and culture.

This interactive discussion is hosted by the National Girls Collaborative Project (NGCP) and is facilitated by the American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES). The goal of this conversation is to help inform the work being done by AISES and others in their efforts to reach girls that are hard to reach with STEM learning opportunities. This hour has been designed to crowd-source and share broadly the lessons lesarned from girl-serving STEM programs reaching girls with additional barriers to STEM education. Our time together will be divided into three phases of conversation: challenges, stategies, and steps for action. Whether you are an organization or individual steeped in this knowledge or looking to learn more, we welcome you to participate in this dynamic conversation on a very important topic for our field.
