Out-of-school-time (OST) personnel had the opportunity to sharpen their leadership skillset at the AMPLIFY Leadership Symposium hosted by the Center for Afterschool, Summer and Enrichment for Kids (CASE for Kids) in partnership with the YMCA of Greater Houston.

More than 180 attendees from the YMCA, CASE for Kids, Dream Academy, Precious Moment Child Care Center, and Texas ACE Cycle 11 grant campuses participated in the daylong event at the Irvington conference center.

Welcome remarks were provided by Juliet Stipeche, Director of Human Services for Houston Galveston Area Council (HGAC), which is heavily involved in workforce development and supports the role that OST plays in youth development.

Workshop sessions covered post-pandemic youth mental health, emotional intelligence, time management, wellness and social-emotional learning, personal growth, and team building.
