PSERS' Foundations for Your Future Seminars
The Public School Employees’ Retirement System (PSERS) holds Foundations for Your Future (FFYF) seminars throughout the area.  These FFYF seminars provide active members with information about PSERS benefits and services.  A PSERS Retirement Counselor will cover topics such as benefit options, withdrawal of contributions, rollovers, taxes, and legislative actions affecting PSERS.  PSERS recommends that all active members attend an FFYF seminar, particularly if you are planning on retiring within the year. Advance registration is not required to attend any of these seminars. For a complete listing of upcoming seminars, click here.

Freedom Foundations' Graduate Professional Development Programs

James A. Danner VFW Post 537 has set aside funds to pay for up to THREE West Shore School District teachers if they wish to take three credit hours.

Where:
Freedom Foundations' Graduate Professional Development Programs For Teachers held at Valley Forge (http://www.freedomsfoundation.org).

There may still be space in the traveling workshops' rosters which will be filling up soon. 

There is ample time over next couple of months for teachers to register for one of five on campus seminars.  Interested teachers should register online at: https://www.freedomsfoundation.org/teachers/2019-app-grad/

What:

  • Endowments cover the $1,400 cost of training.
  • Lodging and meals provided on campus at no cost to the teacher.
  • Transportation to/from Valley Forge would be the only expense in most cases (some extra fees related the "Immigrant to Citizen" seminar as they travel to NYC, Ellis Island, etc.).
  • Each seminar or workshop avails a teacher to have one graduate credit hour funded by Freedoms Foundation which is granted by La Salle University (www.lasalle.edu) in Philadelphia, PA.
