State policies and initiatives are often the catalysts that support OST programs in this critical work.
This National Center on Afterschool and Summer Enrichment webinar—co-hosted with the National Afterschool Association—includes discussion on:
- Research about school-age children's development and the impact of ACEs.
- Strategies, challenges, and solutions for providing support for school-age children in OST programs in the areas of social and emotional development, safe zones, family engagement, and academics.
- Promising practices for state system building that can strengthen supports to help school-age children overcome ACEs and build resilience.
This webinar is designed for state- and territory-level professionals, including State Child Care and Development Fund administrators; statewide afterschool network leads and National Afterschool Association Affiliate staff; 21st Century Community Learning Center leads; Child Care Resource and Referral Agencies; and other training and technical assistance professionals.
