Single-Weekend ULI

In addition to the traditional three-weekend long core courses, one-weekend sessions will be held during 2019-20 ULI North. 

IFT Worksite Leader Training 

Offered in the Spring ULI North session (April 25-26, 2020). Registration form here..

Worksite leaders work with members on the front lines in schools, offices, and other IFT workplaces. They play a vital role in keeping members informed and active. That's where the IFT Worksite Leader training program comes in!

The IFT's WSL program is a series of five courses, or modules. Each module provides a strong foundation of knowledge and skills needed for worksite leaders to be effective. All five modules are included in this one-weekend ULI course. Learn more here.

The Union's Response to Student Trauma and Stress

Offered in the Fall ULI North session (November 9-10, 2019). 

Our students face many adverse childhood experiences - violence, abuse, neglect, loss, and more. This workshop investigates the impact of trauma on students and explores trauma-informed strategies for supporting children. Participants are eligible for PD hours upon completion of this training.

This workshop is designed for teachers, PSRPs, clinicians, security personnel, food service, and custodial workers and other school staff who want to learn about the impact of childhood stress and trauma. We strongly recommend that school teams of at least three or more enroll together.

Learn more and register for Work Site Leader by April 3, 2020.
