Your Washington Afterschool Network – Changes Ahead (Yakima, May 9)

The Washington Afterschool Network is Changing

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 is reconfiguring our structure. 

In the weeks and months ahead, you will see a new advocacy push for expanded learning afterschool and in the summer. A part of this effort includes having more focused WAN meetings that 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 Statewide – WAN provides a platform for program directors and staff to dialogue and meet individuals from other programs.

For more information regarding WAN, please contact David Beard at dbeard@schoolsoutwashington.org.
