Partnerships to Increase Equity and Inclusivity
Type of CourseRecorded Webinar
Camp-School Partnerships are a promising intervention to increase access to high-quality summer programs for youth at under-resourced public and charter schools. In this webinar, we examine what happens after you’ve secured the partnership. Now that you have new students attending your camp, let’s talk about culturally responsive strategies, organizational decisions, and staff behaviors. How do you create an environment that is welcoming, inclusive, and helps campers feel like they belong? Participants will learn more about the ACA resources available to increase access and equity in their partnership programs, including the Creating Inclusive Camps tool, program quality, and continuous improvement.
This webinar is provided free of charge through a collaboration with the ACA x NSLA Camp-School Partnership Demonstration Project and the Indiana Youth Programs on Campus (IYPC) initiative. Learn more about camp-school partnerships, IYPC, and camp program quality at ACA.
By the end of the webinar participants will learn:
- Strategies to increase equity in partnerships between summer camps and schools/community-based organizations.
- How to incorporate diversity, equity, and inclusion into program quality and continuous improvement
- Learn more about the Creating Inclusive Camps tool
- The foundations of program quality and continuous improvement
