Training Description: 

In January, 2006, the Out-of-School Time Resource Center (OSTRC) at the University of Pennsylvania hosted its first Peer Networking Meeting. These monthly meetings allow out-of-school time (OST) staff to socialize, collaborate, and problem-solve with professional peers.

Each PNM features a peer panel and a multitude of opportunities to talk, network, and think about OST! They are an informal meeting and sharing opportunities for administrative as well as frontline staff. Moreover, attending Peer Networking Meetings can count toward formal training hours.
