AFI Grantee Institute @ ALC 2012
By Jimmy Crowell on 07/03/2012 @ 01:30 PM
For this year’s Assets Learning Conference, CFED is delighted to be partnering with the Assets for Independence (AFI) Program to provide a special Institute just for AFI grantees, as well as conference sessions specially designed for IDA practitioners. Even better, the AFI Program is offering scholarships to AFI grantees who wish to attend – see below for details!
Our goals for the AFI-related conference activities are:
- To offer action-based learning wherever possible. The theme of the Assets Learning Conference is “Ideas Into Action,” and we have taken this theme to heart in designing the AFI-related sessions. Many sessions will include accompanying tools, templates or other resources that reinforce the information provided during the session.
- To deliver relevant, interesting material to grantees with a range of experience levels. We recognize that some attendees will be very new to IDAs and AFI, while others have many years of experience. To ensure that the conference is relevant to all grantees, we have intentionally developed sessions to appeal to grantees at a range of points on the programmatic “lifecycle.”
- To foster interaction and dialogue among AFI grantees, AFI program staff and other conference attendees. One of the most powerful parts of the Assets Learning Conference is the opportunity to learn from and talk with peers in the field – so we have included many opportunities for grantees to interact with one another and with AFI staff.
The AFI Grantee Institute will take place on September 19, with the full conference to follow on September 20-21. Scholarship assistance for AFI grantees is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Click here to register, and for more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
