Program Staff Training and Support
The Corporation and CCCS are dedicated to the professional development of our Program Directors and Program Staff. Training and technical assistance priorities for the Corporation continue to include improving the programmatic quality of national service programs, enhancing programs’ capacities to successfully administer Corporation grants, advancing programs’ capacities to measure results, and providing outreach and support to rural and underserved communities.
The Commission pays keen attention to the following priorities and delivers training and technical assistance to increase program performance in these areas:
- Program compliance with grant regulations,
- Program and program staff effectiveness, and
- Program capacity to conduct substantive evaluation.
Your CCCS Program Officer will provide you with a calendar of trainings and events for your Program Directors, Staff and members to attend as appropriate throughout the program year, as well as timely notification of any other relevant opportunities and requirements as they occur.
In order to ensure that you have the tools for success, the Commission provides required events, trainings, conference calls, and/or workshops. In addition to enhancing your program’s ability to be successful in the areas mentioned above, thereby more effectively guiding members throughout their AmeriCorps experience, CCCS Program Staff trainings and events provide an opportunity for your program to connect with AmeriCorps*State program staff and others from the National Service network.
