Nebraska Statewide Professional Development for Afterschool Providers

Beyond School Bells is partnering with University of Nebraska Extension to provide a series of free professional development and networking opportunities in communities across Nebraska. The goal for this professional development is to create opportunities for afterschool professionals working across the state to share best practices and learn new skills that can help improve the quality and sustainability of their community’s summer and afterschool programs—what we refer to as Expanded Learning Opportunity (ELO) programs. 

These sessions are designed for afterschool program directors, site coordinators and schools/communities that are interested in starting an afterschool or summer program.  Meetings are held quarterly.  Please register below (scroll down) for an upcoming PD session in your region of the state.  If you have any questions, please email the regional contact person listed or email Jennifer Jones at  PLEASE CHECK BACK SOON FOR UPCOMING SESSIONS.
