I Do, You Do, We Do.

Tasha Franklin Johnson, Ph.D., Senior Director, Character Development Learning Institute, YMCA of the USA, firmly believes there's a strong partnership between teaching within the classroom and the afterschool space.

At the YMCA, empathy is defined as accepting, relating, and integrating other perspectives, experiences, and realities to yourself and others.

The field is seeing and hearing a lot about school reopening plans—from full reopening to staggered schedules, to all e-learning, or hybrid arrangements.

The #NAA2015 Exhibit Hall will be transformed into an Afterschool Learning Expo where Passionate Professionals have opportunities to share Powerful Stories, network, and learn about innovative ideas and products to help support quality and professionalism in out-of-school time.
