Professional Development

The key to a successful implementation of any program is professional development. We want you to be confident and comfortable with our program materials. Take advantage of the options we offer to help you familiarize yourself or your staff with the five-step format, trade books, and leader materials in AfterSchool KidzMath.

Online Courses

Free interactive courses are available online at learn.devstu.org. See how experienced leaders use the AfterSchool KidzMath program with their kids while getting an in-depth introduction to the program. These courses have been tested by leaders all over the United States and were developed with the unique needs of out-of-school leaders in mind. They provide excellent training for new leaders and are also used as refreshers for those who are already using our programs. Go to learn.devstu.org for more information.
