Join us along with the College and Career Readiness and Success Center (CCRS Center), the Center on Great Teachers and Leaders (GTL Center), and RTI International on Wednesday, September 2, 2015 from 2:00-3:15 PM ET for a webinar showcasing a new, interactive learning module, Integrating Employability Skills: A Framework for All Educators. Building off of the Employability Skills Framework, the module prepares all educators to integrate employability skills into their everyday instruction. During this webinar, presenters will discuss the value and uses of the employability skills framework and complimentary module including its development, pilot efforts, and potential uses.
This forum will highlight the work of the Statewide Afterschool Networks (SANs) in increasing the investment in afterschool, summer, and expanded learning programs. Statewide afterschool networks provide a structure for bringing together key decision makers interested in improving outcomes for children and youth through school-based and school-linked afterschool programs. In a conversation with three SAN leaders, we will hear how they helped build public will and increased advocacy efforts; participated in collective impact initiatives; improved the use of existing dollars and expanded funding; improved quality; and expanded access and equity in afterschool.
