Children’s Alliance Advocacy Camp

This three-day, interactive training is a great opportunity to gain and sharpen leadership skills and learn more about public policy advocacy for all kids. They teach essential skills needed in effective public policy advocacy for children and families: media, lobbying, and community building. Applications due September 5th!
The Canary in the Coal Mine: Chronic Absence as an Effective Early Warning Indicator Webinar
Wednesday, September 5, 2012
10:00 a.m. – 11:00 p.m. (Pacific)
You are invited to join the Attendance Works Peer Learning Network as we hear about two exciting new research studies that demonstrate the power of chronic absence as an early warning indicator. Like the canary in the coal mine which gave miners a timely warning upon which to act, the chronic absence indicator allows educators and others who work with students to detect when students are off-track and to intervene while there is still time to prevent negative outcomes. Register now.
Webinar with Expanded Learning and Afterschool Project. Making it Happen: Creating Systems for Expanded Learning Opportunities
September 5, 2012
3:00-4:00 PM EST
Expanded learning opportunities flourish when there are highly functional systems that bring together schools, city agencies, community-based organizations and others to ensure strong learning outcomes. From New York City to Palm Beach County to Oakland and beyond, city-level systems ensure alignment with schools, create and deliver quality standards and professional development, focus on data and promote sustainability strategies for a range of programs. On Wednesday, September 5 at 3:00pm EST, a special webinar will share what’s working in cities across the country to expand learning opportunities and unveil a new Toolkit for Expanded Learning developed by the Collaborative for Building After-School Systems.
PONCHO’s Youth Philanthropy Project
Honor a Middle or High School Student for their Outstanding Community Service
The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards program is the United States’ largest youth recognition program based exclusively on volunteer community service. The program was created in 1995 by Prudential in partnership with the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) to honor middle level and high school students for outstanding service to others at the local, state, and national level.
The program’s goals are to applaud young people who already are making a positive difference in their towns and neighborhoods, and to inspire others to think about how they might contribute to their communities. Over the past 17 years, more than 345,000 young Americans have participated in the program, and more than 100,000 of them have been officially recognized for their volunteer efforts. Students are encouraged to complete an online application by November 6.
