Recognizing RISE’s experience and expertise, the Children’s Trust selected Project RISE as the main provider of training and technical assistance to all 100 Trust-funded out-of-school (OOS) agencies.

RISE Training Philosophy:
  Project RISE makes a distinction between “presentations” intended to produce greater knowledge and awareness, and “trainings” which are designed to produce lasting changes in skills and performance. Often presentations precede training in the sense that awareness and knowledge-building exercises must serve as the building blocks for lasting behavioral changes. Therefore, Project RISE-sponsored workshops follow a standard, four-phase format.

  • In Phase I, engagement of the learner,the presenter explains the topic and as well as the relevance of the presentation to the learner, their job, career-planning, and ultimately the quality of the child-care program as a whole.

  • In Phase II, presenters demonstrate or model the skill or skills to be learned (where relevant).

  • In Phase III, the participants will be invited to practice the skill and receive feedback on the execution of the skill.

  • Phase IV is a generalization and maintenance phase which will provide monitoring and feedback on performance of the skill or skills.
