The National Center for Community Schools at Children's Aid is excited to offer Community School Coordinator Boot Camp, a professional learning opportunity that's designed specifically to support the role at the heart of community schools.

While coordinators go by different titles — “Site Facilitator,” “Hub Coordinator,” or “Community School Director” to name a few — it’s never been more important than now to support their skill-building and development, as a growing number of school districts across the country are adopting and scaling the community school strategy.

Held over four half-days in July, Coordinator Boot Camp will provide a series of cohort-based sessions planned to help participants:

  • Gain foundational skills and knowledge for success as a coordinator

  • Develop an action plan to start the year strong

  • Grow a network of peers for ongoing support and partnership

Each attendee will receive a hard copy of Leading with Passion and Purpose, the National Center’s seminal guidebook that includes practical advice and tools grounded in lessons from nearly 30 years of providing technical assistance and capacity building to coordinators all over the country. Our practice-based team looks forward to helping you to hone the leadership and strategic skills essential to disrupt inequity and provide every child with opportunity and a sense of belonging.

To learn more, check out our Agenda at a Glance. 

In order to ensure a meaningful and interactive experience, we will have a limited number of slots available. Also, please note that this opportunity is intended specifically for site-level community school coordinators (or equivalent title).

Now more than ever, community schools are the right strategy to support students, families, and communities. We welcome you to join us – register today!

Who Should Attend?
All playing the role of community school coordinator are encouraged to attend. Boot Camp is especially helpful to coordinators who are new or have intermediate-level experience.  Supervisors of coordinators, school principals, service/program provider staff, district personnel, and other non-coordinator should attend Community School Fundamentals instead.
