WEB WORKSHOPS

ION hosts monthly web workshops each year on a variety of topics related to out-of-school time. Check back frequently to learn more about the web workshops we have planned for this school year.

It's time to talk about Race, Equity, and Inclusion in out-of-school time programs. Are you ready to do this work? All students, families, program staff, and members of the community deserve an equitable experience. For our students to feel safe, we need to create an atmosphere that allows all students to be themselves while knowing that their teachers are actively working to dismantle racism in their learning communities.
Through varying workshops centered around Anti-racist and Anti-bias examples in school settings, the presenters will provide attendees with a complete understanding of the fundamental premise of creating an Antiracist learning environment. True stories and research in schools will illustrate the need to foster an inclusive learning space for all youth.

This is a nine-part (9-hour) webinar series that targets educators at all levels of their equity journey.
