"Hands down amazing training! Highly effective in application aspects and in the ability of the participants to retain the materials."
- John, Out-of-School Time teacher
Cambridge Agenda for Children Out-of-School Time has many years of experience in creating vibrant professional development opportunities for OST providers. We offer a wide variety of competency-based training. Participants are provided with active and engaging learning experiences to deepen their competencies in youth development work.
Training opportunities are free and open to anyone working with Cambridge youth in OST.
Certificates are available for all of our training
We believe training is most effective when attended by a staff team of two or more, as well as the program leadership when possible.
All new staff should attend introductory trainings to gain a shared understanding of practices associated with each topic.
NEW! Asynchronous Training Opportunities
During the pandemic, we recorded several of our baseline training workshops and we are making these available for Out-of School Time Programs to use with their staff members. Click here to access these workshops.
Staff Leaders may encourage or require staff to watch the videos and complete these trainings on their own or may use them to facilitate training in groups. Cambridge OST Staff who complete the trainings may request credit for completing these trainings and the trainings will appear on their Individual Professional Development Transcripts and Organizational Professional Development Reports.
The Leading for Quality Professional Development System is coordinated by Barbara Murphy-Warrington. Contact Barbara with any questions at bmwarrington@Cambridgema.gov.
