King County Training System

School’s Out Washington (SOWA) is honored and excited to partner with Best Starts for Kids (BSK) King County to introduce a King County Training System that will support free and accessible professional development and training to Licensed school-age CCAP providers providers in these initiative cohorts:*

What to expect

Rolling out in January 2021 you may access a more coordinated virtual suite of training opportunities from SOWA, as well a revamped registration system with easier navigation for users. Training opportunities range from topics such as Exploring Structure Racism, Mapping Multiracial & Cross-Cultural Identities, Leap Into Science, our suite of Program Quality trainings (e.g. SEL PQA Basics), and more. 

How to engage

Check out our list of available training offerings below and save the dates on your calendars. Trainings will be open to register starting Jan 4.  Sign up for our enewsletter to be notified of when our calendar is updated with new training opportunities and other ways to engage with SOWA.

Questions

About King County Training System: email Janell Jordan

About specific training opportunities and/or registration: email our training team

Note: During the Coronavirus pandemic we will adhere to social distancing guidelines and will offer trainings virtually. When there are no added cost implications, we will offer these free to all participants, not only to BSK grantees, in light of the enormous challenges youth programs are facing currently.

*If you are a King County youth development professional and not a part of any of the aforementioned cohorts but want to participate in our training opportunities, email Janell Jordan about how to get your organization involved.
