2016 Summer Conference for OST
June 17, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 2:30 pm
The Summer Conference for Out-of-School Time (OST) is a professional development conference that shares best practices in youth development. The conference is open to youth practitioners who want to increase their skills in working with youth in out-of-school time programs, mentoring relationships, or in summer camps.
The keynote speaker for the Summer Conference for OST is Michelle King, a learner, a teacher and an instigator. She taught in Mt. Lebanon for 15 years with a fantastic crew of educators and students and currently teaches at The Environmental Charter School where she seeks to create opportunities for students to learn, discover, be challenged and express their thoughts, dreams, and desires. King is constantly in pursuit of making connections locally and globally. She pushes the envelope and boundaries of where learning should occur for all students. Through her partnerships with the Western Pennsylvania Writing Project, Hear Me, and the Kids+Creativity Network, Michelle is helping to create equitable and empathetic learning opportunities for students throughout the Pittsburgh Area.
