In all employment fields, some workers change career paths while others stay in the field for long periods of time. Researchers from the National Institute on Out-of-School Time, a program of the Wellesley Centers for Women, will examine these trends in the afterschool and out-of-school time field during this presentation. They will share findings from a workforce survey focused on out-of-school time professionals and their views on the benefits, challenges, and opportunities for growth within the field. The researchers will also discuss broader employment trends and how workforce training and professional development can promote quality out-of-school time programming.
This is a program of the Lunchtime Seminar Series at the Wellesley Centers for Women, which is free and open to the public. Tea and coffee will be provided. On-site parking is available at Cheever House (828 Washington St, Wellesley, MA). For accessibility questions, contact Disability Services at Wellesley College.
