Training – Equity and Inclusion Practices for Afterschool Staff

June 3 @ 5:30 pm 7:30 pm

This training is based on the Equity & Inclusion section offered in the National Afterschool Association’s Core Knowledge, Skills, and Competencies framework. Framed as a broad overview of the varied facets of Equity & Inclusion, this training talks about our own identities and their intersectionality, understanding and interrupting bias-based thinking, anti-racism practices, and youth safety, belonging, and competence.

This is an engagement and discussion-based workshop where participants will be asked to keep their cameras on for the duration of the training. Come prepared to participate in breakout groups, larger group discussions, and using the chat function.


  • Participants will develop a more expansive and encompassing understanding of what equity means and its relationship to inclusion in afterschool programming.
  • Participants will learn more about the significance of Minority Stress Theory and how it may impact marginalized youth’s sense of safety, belonging, and competence in your program.
