There is opportunity as states re-vision quality systems with a focus on improvement, equity, empowering flexibility, strong engagement with providers and families to ensure a cohesive system across the full age continuum including how services complement and expand into school-age youth development. Alignment of resources, collaboration between partners, funding, investment, leadership, and sharing best and promising practices matter. State leaders from New York, Nevada, Utah, and Wisconsin will share their insights about incorporating out-of-school time. Wherever your state is in the continuum supporting programs to build continuous quality improvement in out-of-school time services, there is something for you to share and learn in this session as we explore ‘what’s next in our context’. This session is a collaboration between the BUILD Initiative, After School Alliance, and the National Center on Afterschool and Summer Enrichment. Please share this invitation with others who might be interested.
