Public Policy Forum: August 6
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 held its inaugural Public Policy Forum on August 6, 2021, in Orlando. The goal of the forum was 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 explored how our state can increase high-quality afterschool and summer learning opportunities for all.
