Time to Level Up Your Credentials with ACRES

Wednesday, 24 May 2023 09:24

Are you looking for OST professional development opportunities to learn more about providing high-quality STEM programming? You’re in luck! We’re teaming up with ACRES to host four workshops focused on digital badges for afterschool and out-of-school professionals. These sessions are free, live, interactive, and one hour in length with some of ACRES’ amazing coaches!

These micro-credentials, aligned to NAA’s Core Knowledge and Competencies and the PEAR Institutes Dimensions of Success (DoS) Framework, recognize facilitators who use practices that result in the high-quality STEM programs that produce positive youth outcomes. Get recognized for your STEM facilitation skills and encourage your staff to develop and share their skills by taking advantage of this opportunity! Learn more about the badges here.
