The Wyoming Afterschool Alliance (WYAA) is holding its annual conference on October 2-3, 2019 at Little America in Cheyenne, with a Leap into Science pre-conference on October 1. This is an opportunity to build collaborative relationships with people who work with kids, as well as to add knowledge and skills to your library practice.
The experiences young people have outside the classroom are often the most powerful components of their development, and WYAA is committed to supporting the efforts of afterschool leaders at all levels to engage young people and to help them to grow.
This year’s state conference will feature subject matter experts to help you create environments where students thrive. Learn from statewide and national innovators and have time to incorporate ideas of your own into the conversation. PTSB and STARS Credits will also be available.
WYAA has organized its speakers and workshops around the following themes:
- Employing the arts to create engaging and deep learning;
- Developing effective social emotional strategies so that children of all abilities blossom;
- Creative approaches in literacy and STEM to help all kids succeed;
- Fostering young entrepreneurs to enhance Wyoming’s future workforce.
Registration deadline is September 25, and some scholarships are available. Questions may be directed to the WYAA at (307) 335-9922 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
