The Power of Significant Adults: Accessing Afterschool Staff

Human relationships are the driver for student learning, the intrinsic motivator that students need in an increasingly self-motivated-learning world. Dr. James Comer of Yale University said, “No significant learning occurs without a significant relationship.” In this workshop, participants will explore the issues and factors that foster the most important feature of high-quality afterschool programs: positive relationships. We will address the importance of developing staff members who build supportive relationships in afterschool programs. Specifically, participants will gain a greater understanding of what it is about afterschool staff members that leads to significant relationships, which is important in supporting our students’ success in school and life.

Audience: Elementary Administrators, Middle School Administrators, High School Administrators, Superintendent, District Office Leaders
