To improve the availability, access, quality, and sustainability of rural afterschool programs.
ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
The PwrHrs Rural Afterschool Conference is a unique opportunity to connect, collaborate, and create. It will bring together a strong network of educators, organizations, and thought leaders to share information, gain expertise, and collectively build a roadmap to support the quality and sustainability of afterschool programming in our rural communities.
It will feature keynote presentations from experts in the field, participatory sessions, and integrative workshops led by The Grove Consultants International to provide all attendees with an actionable roadmap to take back to your community.
The conference is hosted by YouthPower365, in collaboration with Afterschool Alliance, Colorado Afterschool Partnership, and National Afterschool Association.
The Grove Consultants International will facilitate participants in graphically recorded workshops to share experiences, ideas, and problem-solving strategies around afterschool in rural communities. Participants will all contribute to creating a “roadmap” tool to support their work in their in-home communities after the conference.
