The Antidote to Burn-out

Although Robert has worked in afterschool for years, he looks forward to every training and professional development opportunity that comes his way. “Some people can do the same thing over and over,” said this former TASC AmeriCorps member, “but I need new ideas so I don’t get burned out.” His favorite activities to lead are sports and science. He’s found his greatest success recently in attending science trainings where afterschool educators can be kids for a day, and experiment with the same hands-on activities they will lead in their programs. “If you would try to look up science curriculum on the web, there’s no context,” he said. “In the training, you see it through (the kids’) eyes.”
