What is Summer Leadership Institute?

Due to COVID-19, and the desire of leaders in our field to continue their professional connections and development, the Summer Leadership Institute will be taking place virtually this year.

This professional development event is designed especially for those that currently hold a leadership position (directors, supervisors, managers, assistant directors), those that aspire to a leadership position (teachers and other professionals), and those that support leaders and leadership (coaches, trainers and consultants) to examine and deepen their knowledge, skills and abilities in topics relevant to leadership.

Summer Leadership Institute is an opportunity to connect and engage alongside other leadership colleagues from many sectors of the early childhood and school-age world. With the event being virtual this year, we are eager to reach a larger audience of professionals and connect with each other in new and creative ways.

In addition to a variety of session choices, designed specifically with you and leadership in mind, we also have fun networking events planned for you. This is a valuable opportunity to recharge, re-frame, and renew yourself and your leadership journey.

What is this year's theme?

This year's theme is The Importance of Connecting . Before the pandemic, directors, managers, supervisors and administrators carried a heavy load of work and responsibility and were faced with many critical decisions every day. The pandemic has exacerbated this heavy load. Many are trying to keep their program doors open, counseling their staff, keeping children and families engaged, working from home and supporting their own families. This is a lot. This is hard because it's hard. But it's made easier when we connect with others.

Join us for our virtual Summer Leadership Institute and find support, inspiration and new knowledge.
