This conference will share a growing body of ideas, experiences and lessons from cities across the nation about building local afterschool systems.
The conference is sponsored by the Wallace Foundation in collaboration with the Forum for Youth Investment, the American Youth Policy Forum, the Collaborative for Building After-School Systems and the National League of Cities.
Forum staff will facilitate several plenary sessions and workshops, including: Charles Smith, executive director of the Forum's Weikart Center for Youth Program Quality; Nicole Yohalem, director of special projects at the Forum; and Joe Bertoletti, director of field services at the Weikart Center. One key resource will be a guide recently produced by the Forum in partnership with the Wallace Foundation: Building Citywide Systems for Quality: A Guide and Case Studies for Afterschool Leaders.
