Power of Us Survey

The Power of Us Workforce Survey seeks to know and understand the afterschool and summer workforce. We believe that if we know more, we can do more to support you as professionals and the needs of families in accessing opportunities.  When you complete the survey, send a photo/screenshot to Kelsey.Nagel@oregonask.org to get your $20 OregonASK training credit!

2022 Oregon Community Summer Grants

In August 2022, Region 16 Comprehensive Center in partnership with the Oregon Association of Education Service Districts, awarded a contract to OregonASK to provide reporting support for the Oregon Community Summer Grant initiative. Throughout the reporting process, we plan to rely heavily on qualitative (narrative) data, and hearing  directly from those most impacted by the grant funding.

What We Do


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.

Professional Development

To advance the overall quality of afterschool and summer programs in Oregon, we provide direct training opportunities to hundreds of professionals each year. 

Our Mission is to support, expand, and educate on quality Afterschool and Summer Programs for children, youth, and families throughout Oregon
