Afterschool Symposium

Building Systems

Where All Youth
Can Thrive


About the Symposium

The past year has thrown a lot our way. The Coronavirus pandemic has forced many industries to reinvent their approach to their work and adapt to virtual spaces that have become the new normal. The out-of-school time field is no exception to this urgent need for flexibility and quick, innovative thinking.

The current social and professional climate accentuates the importance of remaining agile to forge more robust collaboration and build systems and programs for all youth to thrive. Attendees can expect the same high-quality workshops and motivational words spoken by our keynote, just in an entirely online experience designed to present innovative methods for positively impacting children and youth in a physically distanced environment.

This year's theme, Unmasking Your Potential, emphasizes tapping into the reserves of perseverance and creativity stored within us all as we navigate our new normal and the subsequent migration to a virtual landscape.
