Arizona Center for Afterschool Excellence (AzCASE) — Afterschool for All Challenge, Flagstaff Workshop, and More!

| March 17, 2020
The Arizona Center for Afterschool Excellence (AzCASE) is celebrating 30 Years of serving Arizona’s Youth Program Providers
Afterschool for All Challenge – March 18th
Afterschool for All Challenge, the annual meeting of afterschool advocates in Washington, D.C., is now a virtual event to minimize risk. The event is NOT cancelled because we won’t let the coronavirus mute the advocacy for our kids. This is still a vitally important chance to let Congress know how much afterschool matters. Our voices will make sure that instead of the White House’s proposed elimination of afterschool, we see an INCREASE in funding so our programs can serve more children and families in need. Please share this virtual challenge, everyone can join us!
Go to the Take Action Center to let your members of Congress know about all the important things your afterschool program does for your community. In addition, you can use this opportunity to let your elected officials know how the virus is impacting your programs and the kids you serve. Let them know that now is the time for more resources, not less.
Flagstaff Workshop
Join AzCASE on April 21st for an informative session with Dr Bryan Harris
 The Strategies for Youth Who Drive You Nuts
This workshop focuses on strategies that are effective when working with, unmotivated, and reluctant youth in your program. Research will be shared that offer glimpses into why some youth exhibit difficult behaviors and participants are provided with numerous, specific strategies that have been proven effective.
We are planning this for late April in hopes COVID-19 will be under control and the threat will be diminished* Session will be from 10-noon. Stay Tuned for Location Details Coming Soon!
Updates and Resources for the Coronavirus (COVID-19)
AzCASE wants to take some time to help programs prepare for potential disruptions due to the spread of the coronavirus. As you may be aware, the coronavirus has now begun to spread in the continental United States. Governor Ducey has declared a state of emergency in the state of Arizona.
You can take precautions to decrease the spread of viruses and help keep kids safe. Afterschool programs, like schools, are important facets of the community and must understand the risk and properly prepare in order to keep students and staff safe.
