Event description

Description

Join us for a day of informative and practical sessions focused on building staff and organizational capacity for summer programming.

This conference is for people who work with children and youth in out-of-school programming. It is a fun and interactive way to share stories from the field, engage in meaningful discussions, access valuable training and acquire new skills and helpful tools.

The conference is $20 and includes all workshops, sessions and lunch.

Space is limited!

At the conference, attendees will have the option to sign up to different breakout sessions. When you register for your ticket please select the breakout sessions you want to attend. The descriptions for each breakout session is included below:


Edmonton Public Library

Learn how to take full advantage of Edmonton Public Libraries’ free resources to help your summer programming soar. We will cover everything from how to get an EPL robot crew to your camp, to facilitating fun literacy-based activities and incorporating summer reading club activities into your program plans. Summer Starts at EPL offers games, prizes and activities to encourage kids of all ages to read, create, and explore. Research proves that reading over the summer helps kids when they return to school, and strong literacy skills help everyone through life. This session will outline ways to connect with your nearest EPL branch and engage youth with the library over the summer.


Handling Disclosures
This session will cover: how to recognize abuse and neglect, how to respond to a disclosure of abuse or neglect from a child, how to report abuse and neglect and intervene, how investigations are undertaken and the role of service providers the rules governing the sharing of information among service providers, and the importance of collaboration among all those working with children and families.

Back Pocket Games
Join us to learn back pocket games designed to help you fill THAT space when you need to kill time when you have no equipment, maybe it's between two activities or maybe you are waiting for a bus. The more exposure you have to these short games the more comfortable you will be to fill time. Maybe you have a large or a small group of people. Maybe the games need to be active, or calm games- we'll cover your bases.

Behavior Management
Group management and individual management can be a challenge when you are new to working with groups of people. Sometimes you are the only leader on the site, and sometimes you have help. This information session will take you through what to do when dealing with challenging behaviours. You'll learn a few different techniques to handle a variety of situations, and also we'll run through some scenarios to gain practice and learn hands on.

Enhancing Social and Emotional Well-Being through Daily Physical Activity
With only nine per cent of boys and girls meeting the required 60 minutes of physical activity per day, the Daily Physical Activity (DPA) initiative in Alberta is as important as ever. Ever Active Schools has developed a Social & Emotional Well-Being Booster Kit that connects to all dimensions of wellness - physical, mental, social, emotional and spiritual. Join us as we explore how DPA can enhance social and emotional well-being.

Daily Physical Activity on a Shoestring Budget
With only nine per cent of boys and girls meeting the required 60 minutes of physical activity per day, the Daily Physical Activity (DPA) initiative in Alberta is as important as ever. Explore resources such as DPA’s Greatest Hits and experience hands-on “high participation and fun, low organization” DPA activities that you can bring right back to your program. This session will also focus on eliminating elimination games because you can’t develop skills while you are sitting out! Participants will have a chance to learn how to tweak classic games, and experience some new activity that give ALL students a chance to develop physical literacy.

JUMP Math: Numeracy Activities
Tips, tricks and tools to use mental math and games to improve children's numeracy skills.

Sharing Circles
Sharing circles are an essential part of the oral tradition of Indigenous Communities. In this session, you will learn about how to conduct a sharing circle as well as create a talking stick - a special tool and symbol of respect for the thoughts, stories, and individual histories of each member participating in a circle.
