MADSA Activities Training

  • Wednesday, September 18, 2013
  • 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM
  • Hannah Community Center in Lansing


  • Cost is per person if 2 or more MADSA members are attending. When registering, enter first person's information and then click "Add Guest" to enter additional members.

Activities are a vital component to a quality program. 
  • How do you develop a good activity calendar when your client population is so diverse?
  • What makes an activity “good?” 
  • How do you get as many people involved as possible? How can you set up your clients for success?
  • How can you (or your staff) become an energetic and effective leader?
We will tackle these questions and more.

Each attendee will walk away with great activities to bring back to their centers. We will network with each other, problem-solve current activity barriers in our programs, and role model successful leadership traits.

There will also be an Activity Exchange. Everyone who attends this training will receive a booklet with activity ideas from other attendees that have worked well in their programs.

Please email an outline of your favorite activity to Carrie at by September 11. Be sure to include the following information:
  • Group size—how many people should be in this activity
