Saturday Sessions Session One
An Intentional Approach to the Healthy Growth and Development of Youth - Jamie Davis & Jeremy Green, OSU Extension, 4-H & Youth Development Faculty To promote positive and healthy youth development, intentional strategies in youth work programming are essential for youth to gain core competencies needed to be defined as “thriving.” Participants in this workshop will gain competencies and skill sets needed to develop and promote youth programming aimed at the intellectual, emotional, social, and physical development of youth ranging in age from 5-18. CKC: Set Two HGD How to Implement a School Garden at Your Afterschool Program - Rick Sherman, Oregon Department of Education - USDA Did you know that Oregon has over 400 school gardens?

Learn about best practices by other programs in the State. CKC: Set One HSN Integrating Arts with Literacy - Leilani Larsen Esping, Consultant How do you make a book come alive….integrate it with art!

CKC: Set One HSN Philosophy of Engagement - Ian Mouser, My Voice Music What does it take to create experiences that engage youth in meaningful ways?

CKC: Set One LEC Positive Behavior Supports - Liz Caravaca, Phoenix Solutions Positive behavior interventions and supports, or PBIS, is an effective tool for guiding and managing challenging behaviors in your program. In this session we will explore the concepts of PBIS and discuss ways you can integrate PBIS strategies to support all the children and youth in CKC: Set Two (Pending) UGB Creating Learning Opportunities With Proficiency-based Practices - Diane Smith, Business Education Compact Learning should NOT be limited to the classroom. Experiences, activities, internships, and workrelated responsibilities all promote and offer learning. Did you also know that they can generate high school credit? Proficiency-based practices make this possible. This session provides a brief overview of proficiency and examples of how after-school programs can create credit-bearing learning options for high school students. CKC: Set One PM SciGirls®Live Healthy: Hands-On Activities to Engage Girls in STEM - Nimisha Ghosh Roy, Pacific Northwest Girls Collaborative Project Learn the latest research for exciting and engaging girls (and boys) in STEM; experience hands-on STEM activities focusing on health and nutrition; and gain access to free materials for hands-on, video-enhanced activities that put a creative twist on teaching STEM.

Find out what’s in their way, and how to remove the barriers that are keeping them from optimal leadership. You’ll leave this interactive session with practical, no-cost solutions to problems that have plagued you for years! CKC: Set One PM Where Everyone Belongs - Dr. Mary Shea, Kids Included Together This workshop will introduce the rational for and the benefits of promoting and ensuring meaningful opportunities for children and youth with disabilities to participate in afterschool programs and expanded learning environments. Participants will be challenged to reflect on whether or not their afterschool programs are intentionally and strategically reaching out to children with disabilities and their families, while providing appropriate accommodations and supports. They will be introduced to a paradigm change in ways we look at disability as another form of human difference and will leave reflecting on where their staff and programs are on a developmental continuum of inclusion and hopefully will leave feeling empowered and enthusiastic about creating and sustaining inclusive out-of-school time programs. CKC: Set Two SN
Session Two Creating Safer Youth Programs Through “Culture of Responsibility” (CoR) Principles Kyle Cole, OSU, Precollege Programs In the wake of the Penn State sex abuse scandal, universities across the country are reexamining their youth program policies. Oregon State University has culled safety best-practices and focused on creating a “culture of resonsibility” (CoR) rather than a proscriptive list of policies. This workshop will examine the “CoR Principles” for creating a comprehensively safe youth program. CKC: Set One PM Engaging Families Leads to Success for All - Mia Jackson, Foundation for Family Science & Engineering There are powerful benefits to engaging parents as active participants in their child’s educational experiences.

CKC: Set One HSN/LEC Linking Philosophy and Activities Through Outcomes - Tammy Marino, Consultant, OregonASK Let’s start at outcomes! What do you want the children and youth in your program to be able to know or do? How does your program philosophy and activities reinforce this? What are outcomes? Outcomes are different than outputs, or the activities that you do to accomplish your outcomes. In this session we will untangle outcomes from activities and discuss ways to integrate these two concepts with the philosophy of your program! CKC: Set One PM
Together We Prepare - Carol Mitchell & Susan Thompson, Red Cross Is your school or program prepared for emergency? If you’re like most of us, the answer is no, you’re not as prepared as you would like to be. It can be difficult to know where to begin – and where to go from there.

CKC: Set One PM Physical Fitness, Peer Tutoring & an iPad? Tools to Educate Students with Autism Kiley Tyler - OSU - School of Biological & Population Health Services Currently 1 in 50 school-aged children are diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (autism).
