One thing that is constant in life is change. Programming for youth has definitely changed over the past year. As we look at youth programming as it is today - during COVID, how do we do it? During this training, strategies and activities will be shared on how to keep youth programs inviting and interesting in a time of social distancing.

Get With The Program! STEM Learning for ALL!
October 14, 2020 | Virtual
IAN is excited to introduce our wonderful new partnership with Texas Instruments to offer STEM programming to providers here in Illinois! Texas Instruments has a 75-year history of innovation with a strong commitment to education. Their corporate commitment to STEM education started with the company’s founders and remains stronger than ever today. Their belief in investing in education in order to fuel the talent base needed to continue advancing engineering innovation across the world. Their commitment to education is a strong part of their legacy, and remains one of our highest priorities.

Overwhelmed with requests to help students with STEM literacy? This session will take those who have never done coding and programming before through a simple approach to learning the foundations of all computer languages. These activities are steeped in math, science, and computer science concepts which will help youth realize the connection between what they are learning and how that intersects with STEM careers. But you don’t have to be an expert in any of these areas to have fun coding. Free resources using familiar technology will help you AND your youth Get With the Program!

All workshop participants will receive a 365 day subscription license of TI Nspire CX Premium Teacher Software to use to code and for use to explore what you have learned after the workshop!

Infants, Toddlers, and of course School-Agers! Activities for All in the Family Child Care Setting
October 14, 2020 | Virtual
Working proactively with mixed age groups can be challenging for various reasons especially during these difficult times.

Come Celebrate Lights on Afterschool with Us! Introducing Our New Partnership with Drumfit!
October 22, 2020 | Virtual
See how Drumfit can transform your programming and Family Engagement with Out-of-School Time and Remote Drumfit curriculum.
Interactive drumming and rhythm activities initiate behaviors that are core to social, emotional development. Drumming connects people and transcend differences. While it encourages self-expression in the participant, it also promotes cohesiveness as a group with the teamwork involved in the performance. The abilities to work cooperatively with, as well as, provide and receive help from others are essential competencies in social maturity. Having students work in cooperative team games further enhance these competencies.

Seasoned Leaders Training Series
Join us for a three-part series for seasoned leaders that will help you help your staff work together as an all-star team. The series will provide strategies, resources, and tools that you can use to (1) build a culture of trust and collaboration, (2) work with intergenerational staff, and (3) support change management in an ever-changing environment. At the end of each session, you will leave with strategies to test out with your team and we’ll begin the following session with a debrief and reflection period to share our experiences and learn from each other. Participants will also have the opportunity to share their experiences in an online group discussion between sessions.
