Simple Interactions Leadership Program

Are you looking for an advanced professional development opportunity just for youth workers in out-of-school time settings?  Allegheny Partners for Out-of-School Time (APOST) and the University of Pittsburgh School of Education are partnering to bring you the Simple Interactions Leadership Program (SILP).  This special six-week experience will help you identify ways to increase your interactions with youth in OST settings and positively support the social and emotional well-being of the youth you serve.  Only 12 participants will be accepted to this cohort. We seek individuals that work either part-time or full-time in out-of-school time settings within Allegheny County.  Each applicant should be able to commit to the six-week course, including a final presentation. Participants will receive $200 for full participation in the program.
