Approach to Adult Learning
The CalSAC Trainer Network is grounded in the belief that the out-of-school time workforce is full of talented, passionate leaders who care deeply for young people and their success. They bring an array of knowledge and experience gained through informal learning and through years of being on the ground implementing quality youth programs. Our approach helps professionals make the most of their knowledge and passion by creating a space to share and learn from one another while deepening their skills.
Adult Learning Cycle
CalSAC believes the competencies for trainers in the field of out-of-school time, based on best practices in training adults, that provide a necessary starting point for ensuring that the training and support the field receives is of the highest quality. CalSAC’s Trainer Competencies offer a framework that trainers can use to assess and build upon their skills and knowledge.
