Public Policy Forum

For every youth in afterschool, three are waiting for an available program. It is time we work together to change this reality.

The Florida Afterschool Network is pleased to announce the upcoming Public Policy Forum on August 6, 2021, in Orlando. The goal of the forum is to bring together afterschool and expanded learning leaders, school district administrators, superintendents and school board members, along with policy experts and youth advocates to share research-based information and innovative strategies to more effectively serve students and parents in the afterschool environment. From sessions on advocacy and accelerating learning recovery to discussions on sustainability and meeting the academic, social and emotional needs of students, this collaborative and solution-focused event will explore how our state can increase high-quality afterschool and summer learning opportunities for all.​


Florida Afterschool Legislative & Funding Update 

On Tuesday, May 18, we gathered virtually to discuss the 2021 legislative session and what impacts passing legislation will have on afterschool programs in Florida. Our panelists of afterschool thought and program leaders also discussed the federal funding coming to Florida through the American Rescue Plan and how local education districts and afterschool programs can better collaborate to accelerate learning recovery.
