Out-of-School Time Professional Development Series
As part of our commitment to high-quality programs, MeckEd offers professional development opportunities to our partners. Our professional development offers opportunities for program assessment, feedback, and coaching. In addition, we offer year-round trainings and workshops. Lastly, we connect partners in our network to allow for peer knowledge exchange.
