The Activator Cycle is Sprocket's system of supports to help Saint Paul youth program providers complete a continuous program improvement cycle leveraging data to inform improved practices.
This year’s Virtual Activator Kick Off will focus on updates of what your program can expect from this year’s cycle. Ideally the individual(s) who will be the key contact for your program will attend but if unable, a representative from your site is great too.
We will share out key information like:
Activator Tracks - Designing the cycle to meet your current needs. Programs are still in different spaces and we have some new ways to support folks that are uncertain right now as well as our traditional model for those who have systems set and ready to go.
*Traditional Activator cycle
*Activator Learning Community - adapted supports
Resources you may access to build, revise, or re-engage your data collection needs (attendance/participation, experience or outcome surveys)
Quality Data - YPQA and SEL PQA updates – We will be supporting both the YPQA and SEL PQA in different ways this year
Trainings for fall including:
*Youth Work Practices: Foundations of Quality Programming – our traditional fall workshop that is great for newer staff to your org
*SEL Workshops – we will have 3 workshops this fall focused on supporting young people in the Emotion of SEL
