ORONO — University of Maine Cooperative Extension 4-H will offer professional development sessions online for adults working with youth starting 9–11:30 a.m. Wednesday, May 27. Sessions continue June 1, 3, 4 and 11.
Virtual 4-H Quarantine Professional Development is designed for after-school providers, 4-H volunteers, teachers — any adult working directly with youth. Topics include making and tinkering, supporting social and emotional learning, observing the natural world, and creative problem-solving. Workshops will involve online and independent work. Certificates for contact hours will be provided.
The sessions are free; pre-registration is required 24 hours in advance. Register for one or more workshops on the program webpage. Participating by video (rather than by phone call) is preferred; sessions will not be recorded.
