Hello! Below is a great professional development opportunity that focuses on your work with students when they aren't in school. While this conference isn't specifically for library staff, it is for everyone who provides programs and enrichment activities for students when they are not in school-if your library does summer reading, homework helpers, or has book clubs for teens and kids, this conference applies to you!
Attendees will get programming ideas and learn how better to integrate positive youth development into your programs and services. Those of you specifically interested in learning about science programming, you'll find lots of resources at this conference! This is also a great opportunity to expand your professional network beyond your library colleagues.
Below are the details. If you can't see the registration announcement below, go to: http://events.r20.constantcontact.com/register/event?llr=ugr9b8dab&oeidk=a07e699hrq74d1a8865&oseq=

Registration is Now Open!!!
This is Oregon Afterschool for Kid's fourth year convening Oregon's afterschool professionals. As a collaboration of public and private organizations and community members, we are thrilled to host this annual conference to afterschool professionals working in child care, recreation, education, youth development and specialized content areas. We anticipate 350 people!
This year, our conference focus is on STEM in Afterschool. Our keynote presenter is Dr.Anita Krishnathurthi from Washington DC, from the Afterschool Alliance, where she is the Director of STEM Policy. She leads the Alliance's efforts to advance policies, research and partnerships so children and youth have rich STEM education experiences in their afterschool programs. Anita is an astronomer by training and has been deeply involved in science education and outreach to a wide variety of audiences for the past decade in a range of roles. As a scientist, she personally feels the urgency of expanding STEM learning opportunities and providing equitable access for a diverse group of children and youth. She strongly believes that afterschool programs play a critically important role in reforming STEM education and that they must be treated as strategic partners in STEM education.
2012 Workshop Topics:
* The Adolescent Brain- How It Works and How We Can Work With It
* An Intentional Approach to Positive Youth Development in Youth Programming
