Future Ready with the Library Project?

Posted By Cassondra Vick, Wednesday, June 15, 2016



Passing along this opportunity for small, rural and tribal librarians:

Future Ready with the Library: Connecting with Communities for College and Career Readiness Services

 

YALSA and the Association for Rural and Small Libraries (ARSL) are partnering on Future Ready with the Library, a project to build the capacity of small libraries to provide college and career readiness (CCR) services for and with middle schoolers. 

 

Through Aug. 1st, small, rural and tribal library staff can apply to be a part of a cohort of learners and doers who will create CCR services for the middle schoolers in their communities.  Successful applicants will receive a wide variety of support, including access to mentors, a stipend to purchase CCR materials, and funds to travel to Atlanta, GA, Jan. 19 - 20, 2017 for orientation, as well as to another conference of their choice.

 

Cohort members will work online throughout 2017 to develop, implement and evaluate a CCR service with a partner in their community.

 

The project is aimed at any library staff working in the U.S. in libraries with a service population of 15,000 or fewer, and/or that are 25 miles or more from an urbanized area.
