Professional Development Trainings

Professional development trainings through Vermont Afterschool, Inc. offer hands-on, interactive experiences for staff working in afterschool, summer, and expanded learning programs. These trainings are facilitated by trainers with significant expertise in their topic areas. From brand new direct service staff to seasoned staff members to site and program directors, we have developed a range of trainings that will benefit a variety of audiences.



How to Schedule a Training

Afterschool program directors, site directors, or other authorized individuals charged with securing professional development trainings can request to schedule a specific training at their program. Trainings can be requested at any point in the year and efforts will be made to fill the request in a timely manner. For best results, please request a training at least four weeks in advance.

For individuals who are looking to attend a training, take a look at the list of events on the right sidebar of this page. Trainings are listed according to the prefix “TRNG”–click on any of those scheduled trainings to see the description, location, and contact person. Then call/email the “host” listed to see if the trainings are open and if there is a cost to attend.

Professional Development Training Costs

  • The cost of trainings is typically $100/hour (minimum 2 hours per training) though pricing may vary according to training length and partnership agreement.
  • Licensed school-age programs are eligible for a cost reduction of 50% (limited reduced funding is available per year).
  • Additional training costs (such as food, space, consumable materials, and promotion except where noted on training MOU) are the responsibility of the host organization.
  • Mileage reimbursement for trainers traveling more than 20 miles is covered at the federal reimbursement rate and is the responsibility of the host organization (except where noted on training MOU).
  • The host sponsor and organization are responsible for registration of participants (minimum 8) and securing a site for the training.
