CATCH Training



CATCH's virtual trainings provide K-8 educators guidance for Whole Child wellness education, as well as strategies for remote or physically-distanced instruction during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We also offer trainings for out-of-school time staff and administrators that highlight quality program delivery in remote or physically-distanced settings.

In addition to these open-registration trainings, districts & organizations may request private virtual trainings for any training types listed below, as well as abbreviated* versions of traditional CATCH trainings (e.g. in-person CATCH Kids Club & CATCH Early Childhood). Please contact info@catch.org for more information and pricing. 

*A follow-up, in-person training when safely allowed is recommended for private, abbreviated CATCH trainings.
