The Michigan AfterSchool Association supports statewide regional workshops for out of school time professionals per year. These workshops meet in different regions throughout the state of Michigan. Specific topics will vary from workshop to workshop, but they will be facilitated with a common goal of providing quality professional development training and resource sharing to members of the out of school time field.

Starting in 2017, MAA aims to provide monthly regional workshops. If you are interested in MAA bringing a regional workshop to your community or have a topic idea, please contact Jennifer Bonner at

Regional workshops meet the ten National AfterSchool Association Core Knowledge and Competencies guidelines and will cover topics to improve out-of-school time programs and professionals including:

  • STEM
  • Active Learning
  • Growth Mindset
  • Youth Voices
  • SEL
  • Five Building Processes
  • Cultural Competency
