We help programs find new local, state, and national partners, aligning our work to all those who have overlapping goals and increasing the efficiency and impact of our work.
We work directly with providers, public administrators, and elected officials to create policies supporting the work of afterschool programs, professionals, and youth in Oregon.
To advance the overall quality of afterschool and summer programs in Oregon, we provide training opportunities to hundreds of professionals each year.
