Google Classroom & G-Suite Training
Limited Capacity full

Learn how to connect virtually with CPS students attending your program this summer through Google Classroom and other G-Suite apps for Education being made available to DHSP by CPS.  All CPS students in grades 3-12 (and any family in lower grades that need one as well) will have their Chromebooks for the entire summer.  Through the CPS Google-Suite, summer program staff can directly support and connect with students on a secure and protected platform. Google Classroom can be used as a virtual classroom, and to streamline the process of sharing files, information and alerts between programs and their youth.  Using a “train-the-trainer” approach, this workshop will train lead OST program staff who will then be able train/support their teams.  Required: workshop participants should join the workshop using a laptop or desktop as Google advises that these devices (not hand-held devices) should be used when using Google Classroom.

Becoming A Student-Centered + Anti-Racist Designer!
Limited Capacity filling up

Acknowledge, Be transparent, and Create! (starting with trust) - those are the ABCs for designing student-centered and anti-racist virtual programming. We will explore those ABCs and a framework for designing new ways for young people to evolve as virtual learners. After beginning our workshop with foundational tenants, we'll explore what programming ideas can spark young people to have agency in their own learning.
Participants will:
  • Reflect on what it means to be a student-centered + anti-racist designer
  • Experience a framework for designing virtual program content that is engaging + culturally responsive
  • How to be more aware of how content either supports or dismisses student's voices and power
  • How to develop content to incorporate opportunities for students to be stewards of their own learning.

How to Be An Anti-Racist Team Captain!
Limited Capacity seats available

In this moment of uprising & cry for justice against the murder of black & brown people by the police across the nation, it is imperative that collectively work together to disrupt western-prescribed models of working and learning. To have meaningful & impactful youth and staff driven outcomes, requires speaking truth to power, compassion amongst us all, & self-reflection. In this workshop, we will identify best practices to be implemented this summer to construct our collective identity & responsibility by supporting one another with transparency, consistency & anti-racist & culturally responsive practices.

Participants will:
  • Practice self-reflection to identify personal areas of growth and challenges in anti-racist leadership (understanding your own conscious and unconscious biases).
  • Learn best practices in providing supervision using compassionate leadership tools to best serve staff, youth, and families.
  • Be exposed to tools for decision making and shared responsibility through collective leadership including, but not limited to:
  • How to virtually design Ways of Being/Working Group Agreements & curriculum planning with team members;
  • How to develop meeting agendas with input from all levels of leadership; and
  • How to practice anti-racist Family Engagement in a remote world.
