As soon as the most recent summer slips into the past, it is time to start thinking, reflecting, and planning—while summer’s lessons are still fresh in your mind, easy to retrieve, and awaiting your evaluation. Let us help you get started with NSLA’s Summer Starts in September program planning guide.
Carefully planned summer learning programs provide youth with life-changing experiences, so it is important to begin with the end in mind, establishing definite goals and steps to achieve them. In Part 1 of the Summer Starts in September workshop participants will examine quality standards and share practice ideas for using them in a continuous program improvement cycle. The workshop will make extensive use of the Summer Starts in September program planning guide. The facilitators will model activities and tools that participants can use to plan their summer learning program.

Part 2 of the Summer Starts in September workshop will take a deeper dive into tools you can use now in planning your summer program. Attendees will have the opportunity to interact with templates, tip sheets, samples, and other resources, and learn how to implement them at home.
This is a great follow-up workshop to the Summer Starts in September: Your Ultimate Planning Guide, Part 1 Pre-Conference workshop!
