CMS Beginner Training 05/25/2017

Dear DCYF Partner,

This training is open to all programs across all strategies, and will cover CMS basics to familiarize program staff with data entry into the system and some basic troubleshooting tools. Specific topics include creating participant records, setting up activities, taking attendance and running simple reports. It is not necessary to have a CMS user account to attend this training as we will be using sample user accounts to make sure all trainees are on the same page.

There are only 21 spots available for the training, so please limit attendance to one staff person per program. Program duplicates will be removed from the training roster and only the first staff person that registers from your program will be kept on the list.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Xavier Morales at xavier.morales@dcyf.org.

Dear DCYF Partner,

The CMS Intermediate Training will cover how to troubleshoot data issues that may arise in your monthly Workplan Progress Reports.

Dealing with Problematic Behavior: Strategies to Support De-escalation and Inclusion

Date: Thursday, May 11th, 2017 *Few slots left J

Time: 9:30AM-12:30PM

Location: Department of Children, Youth & Their Families – 1390 Market Street, 9th Floor, suite 900., San Francisco, CA

 

Is there a child or two in your program that seems to have disproportionate behavior issues? Young people use their behavior to tell us what they need. Understanding the needs behind problematic behavior takes time, patience and an understanding of trauma. By re-framing problematic behavior as an unmet need for the child, we can design interventions that allow for connection and inclusion, rather than exclusion (like time-outs or suspensions). Through experiential activities, trauma-informed theory, and role-play activities, this training will provide concrete strategies for afterschool staff to de-escalate and prevent those behavior disruptions that interrupt good teaching.

 

Participants will:

  • Build a common definition and understanding of problematic behaviors that interrupt the flow of good programming.
  • Learn a trauma-informed analysis to understand what kids need when they are “acting out”.
  • Practice strategies to intervene and de-escalate challenging behavior
  • Brainstorm ways to improve partnerships with the school day staff and parents to support a preventative environment
  • Understand other resources in SF that can provide extended support
  • Strengthen your program’s existing behavior management protocols to anticipate and respond to challenging behavior

In this session participants will receive:

  • Experiential Activities to Introduce Identity, Culture, Class, Gender, and Inclusion
  • A 10-Step Implementation Guide to Purposeful Program Design

Registration Includes:

  • All handout and materials covered in the training
  • Coffee, Tea, and Hot Lunch
  • Opportunity to network with colleagues in the field

Behavior Guidance & Classroom Management through a Social Justice Lens

Date: Tuesday, May 16th, 2017

Time: 9:30AM-12:30PM

Location:  Department of Children, Youth & Their Families – 1390 Market Street, 9th Floor, suite 900., San Francisco, CA

 

“The number one problem in the classrooms is not discipline; it is lack of authentic learning tasks, procedures and routines” ~Harry Wong

 

It’s about culture. It’s about communication. It’s about relationships. It’s about safety. Guiding young people to success requires so much. It can be hard to know what to say and how to say it or where to draw the line. What is clear is that young people need a space where learning can take place and where who they are is accepted, validated and integrated. Come to this creative workshop experience and design an inclusive classroom culture that is conducive to learning and to socio-emotional development.

Time: 9:30AM-12:30PM

Location:  Department of Children, Youth & Their Families – 1390 Market Street, 9th Floor, suite 900., San Francisco, CA

 

“The teacher is of course an artist, but being an artist does not mean that he or she can make the profile, can shape the students. What the educator does in teaching is to make it possible for the students to become themselves.” ~ Paolo Friere

 

If the goal is a better world, then we must move toward that goal vigilantly. We need programs that transform and liberate. We need lessons and activities that open minds and challenge assumptions to create social change. How do we design curriculum that will capture their imaginations and make them question the world’s conditions? In this creative work experience you will be lead through a tried and true process and receive tools for planning curriculum that will not only engage your students but will also develop their skills and their socio-emotional literacy.

White Allyship in Youth Development

Date: Thursday, June 1, 2016

Time: 9:30AM-12:30PM

Location:  Department of Children, Youth & Their Families – 1390 Market Street, 9th Floor, suite 900., San Francisco, CA

 

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

 

The socio-political landscape has surfaced so many covert social issues. Racism, classism, anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant rhetoric has driven a wedge throughout the country. Given that nearly 70% of the school teachers are white and nearly 65% of students are of color, there must be a concerted effort to bridge the cultural distance between the youth and the people that serve them. You will leave this workshop with the language to have difficult conversations about race with your students, investigate your programs systems and structures for cultural bias and learn some tools for being an effective ally in the pursuit of equity within your class and/or program.

∙     All levels welcome

∙     Breakfast & Coffee Provided
