Professional Development

NAA publishes fresh, new content every week covering a wide variety of topics related to the field of aftershool. Be sure to check in regularly.

"There is no question that staffing is a key component of quality in out-of-school time (OST) programs," write Suzanne Bouffard and Priscilla M.D. Little in "Promoting Quality through Professional Development."1

A new major national afterschool project from the Maine Mathematics and Science Alliance (MMSA) is seeking organizations to participate in a free, innovative, video-based coaching curriculum in STEM—with an exclusive opportunity for NAA members.
