Grantee Orientation Videos

In collaboration with the California Department of Education’s Expanded Learning Division (CDE-EXLD), the California Afterschool Network has created a series of videos to help Expanded Learning grantee staff strengthen their knowledge and understanding in the following content areas: Grants 101, The Quality Standards for Expanded Learning in California, Continuous Quality Improvement and Federal Program Monitoring.

How to use the Grantee Orientation videos:

In conjunction with the Grantee Orientation videos, CAN has created activity outlines and materials for Expanded Learning professionals to use to facilitate internal training and professional development with their staff. The videos can be used for program quality improvement planning, watched over a series of weeks, used as part of an on-boarding process or even as a refresher at the end of the year!
