Afterschool Webinar: Safely Engaging Youth in a Virtual World
Thursday, Apr 23, 2020 | 2:00 PM ET
 
With the quick transition from in-person to virtual learning environments, afterschool providers are quickly adapting to serve young people in this new virtual world. But sifting through all of the resources that have flooded the field can be a tough task. Instead, we can learn from experts who have years of experience preparing educators to engage students in a virtual environment. Join the Afterschool Alliance and Outschool, an online platform where educators teach highly-engaging classes over Zoom, to learn how to effectively transition to online platforms and understand the safety and privacy issues to engaging with your students online.
