Call For Presenters

The U.S. Department of Education (the Department) is seeking proposals for workshop sessions at the Nita M. Lowey 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) Grant Program 2021 Summer Symposium, which will be held virtually on July 20-22, 2021.

Out-of-school time practitioners, researchers, program directors, evaluators, 21st CCLC state coordinators, afterschool network representatives and others are invited to submit abstracts for consideration. During the three-day event, approximately 90 breakout sessions that align with this year’s discussion strands will be convened in 75-minute blocks. Elements of proposed workshops should address the following guidelines:

  • Design content for delivery in a 75-minute block of time.
  • Use interactive strategies and follow adult learning best practices to disseminate information.
  • Include activities that invite audience participation (e.g., polls, chat box use).
  • Provide practical information that participants may use to improve or enhance their programs (e.g., concrete examples, samples, and/or interventions that can be implemented immediately).
  • Target one or more of the following audience role groups: project directors, site coordinators, program evaluators, local school system officials, state education agency coordinators, program finance staff, community partners, program staff and school-day leaders.
  • Offer information that will help 21st CCLC programs support students who attend schools that are implementing comprehensive support and improvement activities or targeted support and improvement activities or other schools determined to be in need of intervention and support to improve student academic achievement and other outcomes; address students who may be at risk for academic failure, dropping out of school, involvement in criminal or delinquent activities, or who lack strong positive role models; and the families of said students.

If you want to present at the 2021 Summer Symposium, please go to http://21stcclc.leedmci.com/CFP to review the Call for Presentations. All submissions will be evaluated by a panel of outside experts and Department staff for relevance and content. At a minimum, proposals should demonstrate a clear connection to one of the 2021 Summer Symposium’s five topical strands and describe new information, strategies or promising practices that will be provided to workshop attendees.

Proposals will be accepted until 11:59 p.m. ET on Sunday, March 7, 2021.
