CPR, AED, & First Aid Training
Friday, January 10th, 10:30 AM – 2:30 PM EST
United Way of SWPA
On Friday, January 10th, APOST will be hosting our first CPR, AED, and First Aid Training of the year! This training will be facilitated by CPR Simplicity. CPR Simplicity is a family owned business which “believes that through widespread AED deployment and training as many people as possible on how to do CPR and use an AED, there is no limit to how many lives can be saved.” This training is perfect for front line staff who will be working most closely with youth. Certification will be available upon completion of the training. (Certification will be sent via email. Please make sure to register with the email you’d like to receive your certificate at.) Due to the high demand for this type of training, we ask that you limit registration for your organization. QC Members may send no more than 3 attendees. Non-Members may send no more than 2 attendees. Come get your certification before second semester programming picks up! We hope to see you there!
*Lunch will be provided. Please include the correct email for each participant registered. The provided email address is where the certificate will be sent upon completion of the training.

Stages of Youth Development & Basic Teaching Strategies
Sat, February 8th, 9:30 AM – 2:00 PM EST
Got any free time on the weekends? Join APOST at United Way of Southwestern PA’s Pittsburgh Office for two of our original workshops; Stages of Youth Development (now updated with even more relevant content) and Basic Teaching Strategies!
Stages of Youth Development reviews the four basic areas of human development as it relates to the various age groups of youth including: early childhood, middle childhood, early adolescents, and middle adolescents. This workshop is for individuals interested in learning how to prepare age and challenge-appropriate lessons for youth that correspond with specific areas of development.
After a short break, Teaching Strategies will help us review various learning styles such as visual, verbal, and logical, as well as the seven multiple intelligence types that correspond with them, and best practices and techniques to ensure that all children are learning in the way(s) that fits them best.
