What It Is:
A 12-hour experiential training to prepare after school educators, youth workers, and community members to develop a caring learning center environment and to reach and teach children and youth through an active learning approach that promotes human development, resiliency, and social-emotional competence.
Participants will learn to use the community building process of Tribes as the foundation for transforming the after-school learning center environment to one in which group facilitation and Tribes strategies are effective in reaching and teaching children and youth. Using multiple intelligences, brain compatible learning and cooperative methods, the community learning center climate and staff awareness will begin to reflect the message of life-long learning, personal development, and social responsibility as the keys to success in the 21st Century.
How It Works:
Participants experience learning strategies and evaluate how to apply to age/grade/subject specific after-school situations. Also included are a copy of the 432 page book, Reaching All by Creating Tribes Learning Communities, by Jeanne Gibbs, (or Discovering Gifts in Middle School or Engaging All by Creating High School Learning Communities), a Certificate of Completion, and the materials to enable you to implement Tribes in your after-school community learning center.
Follow-up coaching and support are available so that your staff can intensify the use of the Tribes process throughout the year and at every level of the after-school program.

Remember… Tribes TLC is not an add-on program (one more thing that you have to do), but becomes a way of teaching and learning — the foundation or plate upon which to layer other initiatives, programs or curricula.
What People Say:
(from a preschool teacher): A very fulfilling experience – “doing” instead of being told…I especially valued the time spent on brainstorming how to introduce and teach the agreements to 2 – 3 year olds!
Now I know how to relate to and reach those students who come to our after school program and don’t want any more “school” in their day…I have 150 interactive strategies to choose from that will allow my students to move and talk and learn!
