A Note About Our 2021 Teacher’s Workshop

​CPYB’s intent for summer of 2021 is to offer a limited number of participants a choice between in-person or virtual Teacher’s Workshop options.

We are preparing to operate our in-person program with rigorous health and safety guidelines in place.

Our plans will continue to evolve in the coming months and are dependent upon updates to public health policies. Please continue to check back as updates will be made according to the latest available information and CDC requirements. CPYB is excited to help you advance your training this coming summer!​
