WAN Meeting in Vancouver, WA (Nov. 6)

To better serve the needs of expanded learning providers across the state and to build a greater movement for expanded learning opportunities, the Washington Afterschool Network needs to hear from you!

We are continuing to work with providers and other stakeholders to build a stronger system of supports for expanded learning opportunity providers and participants. Expanded learning opportunities include afterschool and summer programs, 21st CCLCs, School-Age Child Care, and other out-of-school time supporting organizations.

WAN meetings seek to accomplish four things:

  • Input into Decisions – WAN makes decisions about afterschool and summer policy and public funding strategies.
  • Quality Improvement – WAN helps shape field development including building a quality improvement system, developing a state policy plan, and increasing professional development opportunities for programs.
  • Learning Community – WAN offers the space for programs and other interested parties to learn about different ideas and interests of the afterschool and summer field.
  • Opportunities to Network with Peers – WAN provides a platform for program directors and staff to dialogue and meet individuals from other programs.

We hope you’ll join us in November. For more information regarding WAN, please contact David Beard at dbeard@schoolsoutwashington.org.
