Afterschool Essentials is an accelerated half-year program that Vermont Afterschool offers FREE for afterschool staff working in licensed afterschool programs. Fall session registration is now open! This learning opportunity will benefit the newly hired professional working directly with children, those with limited experience, or a new program director who has not worked in this setting before. Afterschool Essentials participants bring varied experiences and backgrounds, and look to gain a greater understanding of the field. This program covers a full range of topics, including school-age child development, program development, health and safety issues, partnerships with families, inclusion, and cultural diversity. For Fall 2022, the program content will include three meetings with the cohort, 11 online learning modules with the Youth Development Institute, self-study, and consultation with a coach. NOTE: Those who complete the full course will also be eligible for the Afterschool Foundations Certificate and a $100 bonus from CDD.
