VIRTUAL: Expanding your Potential in the Youth Development Field

Do you work for a Palm Beach County afterschool program and are you curious about furthering your training and education in the youth development field? Do you want to learn more about scholarships and incentives to continue your educational development and grow your career in the out-of-school time field?

This session will walk you through the educational pathways available through Palm Beach State College (PBSC) and the Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF) where you can receive certificates, credentials, and degrees that are specific to afterschool and youth development. Additionally, Prime Time’s scholarship and ACHIEVE Out-of-School Time Incentive Award programs will be reviewed to highlight supports available to out-of-school time practitioners.
