Oregon Leading the Charge at the NAA Convention in Atlanta
OregonASK is excited to be joining hundreds of afterschool providers at this annual event, taking this opportunity to not only present a session but also meet up with a dozen other Oregon program representatives, including friends from Woodburn After School Club. Oregon is proud to be leading the quest for quality in the world of afterschool, with one of our own, Katie Lakey, recognized as one of the National AfterSchool Association Next Generation of Afterschool 2018, highlighting emerging young leaders who are afterschool champions and believers in the power of afterschool.
Thank You to All who joined our Legislative Round Table in Salem on March 6th!
Although the state legislature ended their 2018 legislative session early, partners from around Oregon joined us in Salem for an engaging discussion on supporting student success through expanded learning opportunities. Thank you to Representative Smith Warner, Senator Wyden’s staff and Speaker of the House Tine Kotek’s staff for participating in the discussion and continuing to support the needs of Oregon youth and families. We look forward to seeing legislative action in the future that will strengthen capacity, sustainability and quality of expanded learning opportunities throughout Oregon. Keep updated on Policy Alerts this spring and summer as we continue to advocate for state and federal support, including the continuation of federal 21st Century Community Learning Center funding.
President Trumps 2019 Budget Proposes Elimination of all Afterschool Federal Funding
1.7 million youth around the country rely on 21st Century Community Learning Centers, and over 14,000 in Oregon alone would face the reality of losing access to affordable, quality afterschool and summer programs if funding was eliminated. Help us fight back and share your story of how #AfterschoolWorks with your congresspeople!
