Are You Ready to Be Counted?

Tuesday, 09 February 2021 08:48

Your voice matters. Your voice can make a difference. It's your workforce—be heard by being counted.

Those who work with or on behalf of young people in out-of-school time can plan to participate in NAA's Be Counted Campaign by taking a three-minute survey beginning February 15, 2021.

Your responses—up to 10,000 strong—to the survey questions about demographics and representation will provide a comprehensive reflection of our profession's members. Survey results will be compiled into the 2021 State of the Profession Report, providing workforce data to help you and other advocates solidify the profession and its essential role for young people, families and communities.

The data gathered will be immensely helpful when it comes to informing research, policies, practice and professional development with the ultimate goal of supporting the afterschool workforce—your workforce.

If you're not an NAA member but want to "Be Counted," sign up for a membership now and make a plan to complete the brief survey once it's available.
