Professional Development

MAP provides comprehensive professional development and coaching services to afterschool programs across Massachusetts. For over 10 years we have offered trainings in informal STEM, social and emotional learning, school partnerships, and many more subject areas. A bulk of MAP's trainings are done through the EPS grants in regions 5 and 6. MAP also provides free professional development opportunities for ASOST-Q grantees.
