Reimagine the Future of Afterschool: Building Back Better with Youth and Communities

When the COVID-19 pandemic struck, the afterschool field sprang into action to meet the needs of their communities. In the spirit of coming together and looking forward, Every Hour Counts has announced the 2021 Every Hour Counts Virtual National Institute virtual event from April 28 -30, 2021.

Participants are invited to gather virtually to reimagine the future of afterschool and what's possible to engage, empower and support young people. Participants will explore how to develop community-wide solutions with young people and leaders from across communities. They'll join forward-thinking leaders—intermediary leaders, community providers, school district representatives, policymakers, funders, researchers and youth—to blaze a path forward.

In addition, participants could join discussions with Every Hour Counts network leaders who represent 28 communities, 3,500 school and community partnerships and reach 500,000 young people, to share successes, challenges, strategies and resources to build stronger learning systems that holistically support children and youth.
