Getting staff on board with squeezing academics into summertime can be a challenge. Adults want to have fun in summer, too, not just the kids! Luckily, you can train and prepare staff to run a summer program that is educational and fun at the same time. The Teach portion of Y4Y has resources ready for you to use in your professional development sessions.

The Objectives That Work Training Starter is one example of a resource you can use. Start an open discussion with your team about how to focus summer activities and projects on learning objectives, and see what kinds of great ideas everyone comes up with. The template provides a backbone for the training session but also allows you to customize it and make it fit your program’s needs.
