Webinar #2: Building a Community in a Virtual Environment

This three-part series focused on the supporting skills and staff development necessary to meeting Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) objectives. Three vital areas for creating a virtual learning environment built to succeed were discussed — positive youth development; building a community virtually; and staff recruitment, retention and training. After this webinar, you should be able to: define community in a virtual environment; create a learning environment where children feel safe, welcome and seen; and facilitate virtual programming to create community and connection even while children learn at home. This was the second in a series of three webinars.
