CALIFORNIA
LDI 360/365 Recognition Ceremony | 2018 Cohort
December 6, 2018 | Oakland, CA
Join us for drinks and appetizers as we honor emerging leaders in the out-of-school time and early learning fields. Meet the Leadership Development Institute (LDI) 360/365 fellows as we commemorate their successful completion of the year-long, intensive program.

The goal of the LDI 360/365 is to deepen the knowledge, skill and abilities of site coordinator and supervisory level staff to lead and manage effective programs that build the character of staff and students. The focus on character aligns with our desire to foster a value driven field that is rooted in equity and social justice, and one that unifies professionals in the field with one collective image of integrity.

Social Emotional Learning Training
Now available
Out-of-school time programs play an important role in helping young people develop confidence, problem-solving skills, self-management, and interpersonal skills. In this program, practitioners learn how to help young people build a solid foundation of character, which imparts valuable social skills for success in school, work and life.

Fellowship for Emerging Leaders of Color
Application Coming Spring 2019
CalSAC's Leadership Development Institute (LDI) fellowships foster transformative change, allowing each individual to be part of the larger movement for equity and social justice. Through an intensive year-long cohort-based program for emerging leaders in the out-of-school time field, the LDI equips site coordinators to director level professionals with an aspiration for advanced leadership with skills in management and leadership. A foundational component of this project is to understand how power, privilege and oppression manifest in the field, and provide participants with the tools, confidence and network to create new realities for themselves, their organizations and their communities.

Training: Onsite & Online
As Requested
CalSAC provides a diverse array of free and low-cost experiential, interactive training and learning opportunities that build the skills and confidence of youth development professionals at all levels, from line staff and practitioners to managers and program directors.

Supervisor Essentials: Goal Setting for Staff
November 13, 2018 | Hartford, CT
When we initially hire staff we often hope for the best and know that for some, working in afterschool is a stepping stone to another career. How we engage with staff and provide opportunities for growth within our programs can help stem the tide of turnover in programs. Over the years the staff at EdAdvance has remained relatively stable because of proper placement and helping staff goal set. In this session we will cover what steps you need to take in your own programs to help staff strive for quality, find their place in your organization, and become leaders that help sustain quality and continuous improvement.

Rethinking Anti-Bias in Afterschool Environments
December 4, 2018 | Webinar
Anti-bias curriculum goes far beyond making sure children see images of "non-stereotypical" roles. Diversity in our settings is so much more than the posters, the books, the crayons, paint and dolls. Anti-bias work includes diversity and culture. Anti-bias work is essentially optimistic work about the future for our children. Anti-bias teachers are committed to the principle that every child deserves to develop to his or her fullest potential. This workshop will explore the 'isms' included in true anti-bias work. We will examine how to more authentically include anti-bias and diversity into the settings that children find themselves in through reflecting on ourselves and our programs. Practical tips, strategies and suggestions will be included in this session.
