Afterschool professionals are working around-the-clock to support youth, families, and our staff. We are focused on elevating safety, well-being, and engaged learning. We are flexible, resilient, nimble, clever and powerful. Afterschool professionals are committed to our work lifting up young people, families, and communities. In October, we convene virtually to learn, collaborate, and connect so we can Elevate Afterschool together. Please join us for two days of captivating keynote presentations, dynamic workshops, and valuable on-demand content aimed toward helping us uplift youth and afterschool providers across the western states. We look forward to hosting you at our second Open Minds, Open Spaces Joint Conference.
