Professional Development

Family League provides coaching and professional development focusing on a wide range of topics that move our partners and the community as a whole closer to realizing the vision of a Baltimore where children, youth and families have the opportunity to thrive. Participants in our workshops represent the diverse population of the City of Baltimore and the various needs of its residents.  We deliver the most current research and best practices to support well-designed, high-impact programs and activities.

We offer a variety of workshops throughout the year. All are free of charge to participants and open to anyone who wishes to attend. A brief list of upcoming trainings are listed below. To view the complete listing and register for our workshops, visit our Professional Development Calendar.

FAMILY LEAGUE OF BALTIMORE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT POLICY

Please note: While all of our professional development offerings are free to the community, the organization will be invoiced a “missed session” fee of $50.00 if a participant does not attend a training for which they have registered, or does not to notify the Family League of their inability to attend within 48 hours of the scheduled training. Organizations will only be charged in the event of a “missed session” by an employee. If an agency fails to pay the missed session fee, their staff will no longer be able to access training offered by Family League of Baltimore. The 48 hour requirement does exclude extenuating circumstances such as a death in the family, serious medical emergency, programmatic emergency that would require the attendance of the registered individual, etc.

Our goal is to continue to maximize the professional development opportunities while reducing the large number of no show attendees we have experienced in the past. Thank you for your cooperation with this policy and hope that your staff continues to benefit from the opportunities that will be offered during the coming year.

Tuesday August 18th | 10:00 AM – 12:30 PM
Tuesday September 22nd | 10:00 AM – 12:30 PM

This workshop provides an overview of the Results-Based Accountability (RBA) framework. The workshop will offer key definitions, a discussion of the levels of accountability, a breakdown of performance measures by type, and an overview of turn the curve thinking. The training will offer guidance to attendees on how to quickly get from talk to action so that programs can better tell the story of their work and begin to figure out if anyone is better off. Participants will experience a mix of lecture, group activities, and individual practice throughout the session.

*Your GoToTraining link will be emailed 1 day before this workshop. This link will give you access to sign in for your class 15 minutes prior to the scheduled Start Time.
