OSTRC Academy



Course Material Archive

The OSTRC Academy* is a special workshop series for OST staff. 

The OSTRC strives to create links between existing OST resources, rather than add to the already robust selection. In some instances, however, the OSTRC develops professional development opportunities when we discover room to fill an obvious need. Examples of original OSTRC "products" include its monthly Peer Networking Meetings, web-based Document Library, online Professional Development Calendar, and bi-monthly Youth Sports, Fitness, and Nutrition Networking Seminars.

OSTRC Academy workshops address OST professional development content, such as "Promising Practices in Professional Development" and "Standards and Advancement for Youth Workers." Also included is a selection of workshops that utilize the OSTRC's areas of expertise, such as "Surveys 101," "Making the Most of Networking," and "Introduction to OST Resources."
