A webinar hosted by Every Hour Counts that will explore findings of a recent Wallace Foundation-FHI 360 report on the status of afterschool coordination nationwide.
A growing number of cities are making use of coordinated after-school systems to support and increase access to high-quality programs. But to what extent are these cities adopting the key components of coordination? And how does the commitment of a mayor or major funder affect the quality of their work?
A recent study by FHI 360 and The Wallace Foundation — Is Citywide Afterschool Coordination Going Nationwide? — offers some answers. Join Every Hour Counts, in partnership with The Wallace Foundation and National League of Cities Institute for Youth, Education and Families, for a discussion of the report findings and what they mean for systems builders. You’ll hear what mayoral support has meant for coordination of after-school in Nashville; how Boston focused energy and investments to build public-private partnerships; and what the role of local foundations is in supporting system infrastructure. There will also be time for interactive questions.
