Join us in May for Leading For Quality: Sustaining Your Program Vision – register today!

Today’s out-of-school time leaders must skillfully balance a constantly changing “new normal” with the long vision for their youth, staff, program, and community. To help program leaders navigate “now” using a sustainability lens, NJSACC, in collaboration with the National Institute on Out-of-School Time, offers a 4 session leadership training. This year’s training will combine long-term thinking and planning with immediate actions you, your staff, and your community can take to help solidify your program’s future.

Attendance is required at all sessions.
