Professional Development Academy

Cohort #3

March 17, 2021

Payday Loans & Predatory Lending Practices

The Indiana Head Start Association has kicked-off our brand-new Training initiative for our front-line staff which we have called the Help the Helpers Professional Development Academy. The Help the Helpers Professional Development Academy is designed for our Family Services Staff, Home Visiting Staff, Teaching Staff, and other essential staff who work directly with the families to provide expertise & important insight and tools to help them address families in crisis, set family goals and improve child, parent, and family outcomes.

Cohort #2 just tackled a comprehensive, two-day "Facing the Opioid Crisis" training with our partners at the Forever Hope Training Center. This training had drawn rave reviews from our sold-out professional development & training participants and Cohort #3 is certain to be another important training opportunity for all of our members! The Help the Helpers Cohort #3 Professional Development training in March will be focused on Payday Loans and Predatory Lending Practices that we all know negatively impact our families and communities. The training features Steve Hoffman, CEO of Brightpoint and Scott Barnhart & Steve Taterka from the Office of the Indiana Attorney General.
