Building Successful Learning Communities (BSLC) is a Washington State University (WSU) Extension training program that brings the research and best practices of the experiential learning model into the classroom. The BSLC program is targeted at Educators who want to acquire the knowledge and skill needed to transform their programs into dynamic, high achieving learning communities. This program spans across curriculum, grade levels, and programs, establishing a scaffolding to support educators, resulting in increased youth performance and decreased disruptive behaviors. Participants have the opportunity to experience best practices, learn the latest research, and understand the theory behind it. The learning objectives are to experience key elements of a successful learning community, gain new tools and techniques for teaching and learning, understand current trends in educational research, and create an implementation plan for new ideas. Learn how to help youth groups build community yet respect intersectional identities and diversity of cultures.    Bring back to pillars to your staff to build your programs capacity.
