Presented by HRiA’s Youth Work Central BEST Initiative:
This 4-hour training focuses on exploring strategies to keep parents/caregivers engaged in out-of-school time programs over time. Evidence points to stronger, more resilient communities when parents/caregivers are involved in programs. Parents/caregivers who are engaged by the program staff can support positive youth development work occurring in the programs, as well as, helping to reinforce it in the home. Participants will get an opportunity to discuss barriers/challenges to engaging parents/caregivers as well as strategies about how to best address those challenges.
