410 – Safety First, Then Fun! Setting Afterschool Staff Up For Success
Taylor Witter, Recreation Supervisor, Northbrook Park District
Parents trust us to care for their most prized possessions: their children! Running a safe and successful afterschool program starts with the Supervisor. Once staff supervise safely, they will then be able to implement activity facilitation by engaging their youth. Learn how to improve your staff trainings, program planning, activity facilitation, and building relationships with your parents and school districts by improving your manuals, and in-person site visits.
Learning Outcomes: Participants will be able to:
- Set clear safety expectations for afterschool staff.
- Ensure children are engaged in activities while remaining safe.
