Saturday Workshop Additions and Cancellations:
CANCELLED! Implementing a Fantastic, Fun-Filled Academic (STEAM) After School Curriculum

NEW ADDITION! Creating Respect and Safety, Rosalinda Mancillas: Room 106, Session 2 (12:30 – 2:00pm)
In this workshop participants will explore their own relationship to safety and support by understanding their "frame" - all the things that make up who we are and how we view situations. Our frame is made up of values we hold, our culture and background, and life experiences. Participants will identify their frame for exploring the deeper issues of privilege, anti-oppression, and ally building – and how this impacts youth work.

JUST ADDED TO SESSION 3! Join In the Circle: Singing Together for Group Harmony and Joy, Betsy Rose: Room 221, Session 3 (2:15 – 3:45pm)
You don’t have to be a musician to get everyone singing! Songs help a group come together, calm down, and focus, and can teach valuable life skills of emotional literacy, self-regulation, honoring diversity, and respect for self and others. Come learn new songs, and gain confidence in how to bring lively and thoughtful music into your program. Receive practical resources, and valuable tips on using music to engage your youth and support positive group management.

Saturday Workshop Description Update (description in program is incorrect):
Program Environment & Safety, Eva Meyers: Room 203, Saturday, Session 2
Come learn about Positive Behavior Guidance, Developing Youth as Conflict Mediators, Bullying Prevention - and more! In this workshop you will learn how to use tools from the ELC Resource Guide’s chapter on Program Environment and Safety (Chapter 5), a chapter filled with tools that will help you improve your program's physical and emotional environment. Join us to learn how to use the guide to make improvements in your program that you can implement right away! This workshop is appropriate for both staff working directly with youth, and for program managers/coordinators.
