Online Workshop: Building your Toolbox for Student Support – Jun 23

Posted by City of Philadelphia Office of Children and Families Adult Education on May 30, 2023

This workshop is part of the Office of Children and Families (OCF) Adult Education’s Spring professional development workshop series for adult educators, administrators, and volunteers.

Knowing your role is the first step in knowing how you can support students. In this workshop, you will have the opportunity to examine your own role and boundaries around that role. Then, you will take inventory of the tools your organization provides, which community resources you are connected to, and where there are gaps. With these tools mapped out, it will be easier to see what needs still exist, which community relationships are most important, and how you can provide support to your students effectively in your role.
