Food & Fun After School Train-the-Trainer Slides
The 2-part Train-the-Trainer PowerPoint presentation can be used to train afterschool staff when programs have the available technology. These slides have been used by trainers from the YUSA and the Harvard School of Public Health Prevention Research Center to guide trainers across the country through the major objectives of the curriculum. The presentations are designed to be delivered in a group setting in person or via Webinar. Trainers should budget 1.5-2 hours for each presentation. There are helpful talking points and discussion questions in the notes section of the slides to help trainers deliver the training effectively and with ease.
Part 1 is an introduction in which participants learn about the Food & Fun health messages, discuss how the variety of materials fit with their current afterschool programming, and make plans for how to get started with the curriculum.
Part 2 should be delivered 1 or 2 months after Part 1 so staff have time to take their learnings from Part 1 back to their program. The objectives of Part 2 are to review the health messages; discuss ways to engage staff, parents, kids, and schools; learn about methods for ongoing training, coaching, and mentoring of program staff; and teach trainers to assess curriculum usage.
