If the grantee library has not received a prior GSC grant and participated in a corresponding workshop, they will receive travel and lodging support to attend the in-person orientation for “Nature vs. Nurture: Origins of Teen Violence and Suicide.” This session will take place in Chicago, IL on March 9-10, 2017.
Grantees that have already participated in the GSC program and received support for a staff person to attend a prior orientation workshop will not receive support to attend the in-person orientation for the new theme. Instead, they will be included in an online training workshop, date TBD.
Additional information about training will be posted on January 16.
