Defining OST PD

Professional development refers to a spectrum of activities, resources, and supports that help practitioners work more effectively with or on behalf of children and youth. Professional development formats include workshops, technical assistance, apprenticeships, and additional diverse offerings. Practitioners can be full-time staff, part-time staff, volunteers, teenagers, parents, or other non-staff members, provided that the professional development experience culminates in supporting OST youth participants. (Peter, 2009)
