WEBINAR Professional Development Training Series

The Council for Opportunity in Education (COE) is exploring innovative and economical ways to bring professional development training to the comfort of your office. We have begun a series of trainings that involve participation through a combination of web-based presentations and conference calls called Webinars. These low-cost trainings (no travel, lodging, or meal costs) will enable program staff to receive high quality professional development and remain in their office to provide services to their participants with minimal interruption. Space is limited. Register early!

NOTEFor any webinars for which there is a cost, payment must be made by credit card. No purchase orders will be accepted,
even if your registration is processed successfully.


The recording for the Why You Should Come to the COE Policy Seminar webinar is currently available on our 35th Annual Policy Seminar page.

Is your pre-college program interested in increasing student engagement and professional development among program youth? Since 2007, the Classic Upward Bound Program, University of Maryland, Baltimore County has utilized PGC to train juniors and/or seniors through Peer Group Connection (PGC),
an evidence-based program that trains and mobilizes older students as leaders to help younger students while also improving social skills, dispositions, knowledge, and behaviors that support academic outcomes.

We invite all pre-college directors to join us on this webinar to discuss if piloting PGC will work for your program.
