Welcome to the New Leaders Academy!
Welcome everyone! Thanks for joining us as we begin a 5-part series for new leaders or more experienced leaders looking to fill some gaps in your knowledge. We have experienced project directors joining us to navigate the most important 21st CCLC rules and guidance so that you get off to a good start with your grant this year. Come ready to ask all your most vexing questions!
To prepare for this session:
1. Find and review your grant proposal, paying attention to your goals, activities, and proposed outcomes
2. If you’d like to get ahead, visit Y4Y Learn—Courses—Introduction to 21st CCLC and begin the course. It will introduce you some key concepts.
If you don’t have time to prepare, don’t worry! We’ll get you up to speed. Looking forward to working with you!
Sherri Lauver and Sarah Brightwell
Welcome to the New Leaders Academy! I’m Sarah Brightwell, one of the facilitators for this exciting webinar series. I am a former junior high English teacher who has worked in 21st CCLC for over fourteen years. I’ve been an instructor, site coordinator, and project director in both rural and urban school districts. Now I have the pleasure of working with 21st CCLC programs across the nation!
We’d love to get to know more about you too! Please post an introduction and bit about yourself as we grow our network of 21st CCLC peers.
As a new member on the Y4Y technical team, I am excited to participate and interact with our 21st CCLC family!
Hello Everyone! I am the Instructional Design Lead and content specialist on the Y4Y team. This week, I have the honor of facilitating your session “Help! How do I Manage all These Moving Parts.”
Over the last 21 years, I have worked as a Project Director in both rural and urban districts and have been a training developer and facilitator both in Texas and nationally. Helping 21st CCLC practitioners build their knowledge and skills is my passion and life’s work.
I am looking forward to meeting each of you.
Hi all! This is Sherri Lauver again, and I’m the deputy project director of Y4Y. So happy to meet all of you later today! I’ve been working in 21st CCLC as a site coordinator, evaluator and technical assistance provider for about 18 years. I’m passionate about all things related to out-of-school time and youth development. I’ve lived and worked in Pennsylvania, New York, and now here in Indianapolis, IN. Looking forward to working with all of you!
Ah, discussion boards! I am back in university! Lol. I am glad to get the chance to connect with so many others working with 21st CCLCs. I feel a bit isolated and lost at times. My strengths are planning and designing interesting curriculum and developing strong working relationships with school staff and partners. My weaknesses are getting the parents involved and anticipating what will bring parents to the table.
Thank you for sharing Janee. We will try to more comprehensively address family engagement.
I am the Director and Coordinator for Pinnacle Charter School’s 21st CCLC Grant.
I muddled through last year and am thrilled for more help and guidance on how to be an effective director. I was just glad to figure out EZ reports last year! We are in Colorado - my Grant runs 4 activities: before and after school tutoring, STEM Club, Adult English classes, and expanded library hours.
Looking forward to more collaboration!
I am Amber Pannocchia, Director of Youth Programs at The MusicianShip in Washington DC. I am brand new to 21st CCLC and so ready to hit the ground running!
Very appreciative of these trainings to get the program off on the right foot!
I am thankful for the opportunity to participate in the webinars! I know that we will gain much knowledge from the field of 21st CCLC staff and the facilitators.
I am a project director from Columbia, SC where, in my public school district, we are blessed to have seven 21st CCLC grants.
My name is Becca Channing. I am the 21st CCLC program director at CORA Services. I currently supervise 4 programs through 21st CCLC cohort 9 and 10. We are located in Philadelphia, PA and serve families in many different neighborhoods in Philadelphia.
It is so nice to hear more about each of you. We really appreciate your engagement. Keep the posts coming. We just added some new topics. Join in the discussion.
