Arizona Center for Afterschool Excellence (AzCASE) — Don’t Miss the School-Afterschool-Summer Webinar!

| May 11, 2021
This past year has been extremely hard on our OST programs and professionals. Many programs have lost valued employees, bosses, co-workers, and friends to COVID and other circumstances. To honor those who have lost their lives this year, we will have a special in memoriam recognition at our 2021 OST Conference. If there is someone you worked with in the OST realm that you would like to remember this October, please submit their name, a brief description of their role (job title or other description if appropriate), and what program they were part of to by July 15, 2021.
School-Afterschool-Summer: Powerful Partnerships –
Webinar May 12 from AASA and the Afterschool Alliance
Across the country, schools have been teaming up with community-based afterschool and summer program providers to support students during the pandemic, from providing remote learning help and enrichment to meals and well-being check-ins. These partnerships draw on decades of research that show afterschool and summer programs boost academic, social, and emotional learning.
With new support from the American Rescue Plan, schools have an opportunity to leverage support from afterschool and summer programs to help students re-engage, re-connect, and recover.
The AASA Learning 2025 Commission has called for districts to establish communities built on love, respect, and joy including structures of support that include multidirectional communications with community partners, and year-round and afterschool programming.
Join us to explore what’s possible, how to quickly form effective partnerships, and how to maximize an investment in community-based partners for student recovery.
The City of Tempe Office of Sustainability is honored to announce the launch of our “Cool Kids, Cool Places, Cool Futures” project.

What is Cool Kids?

Cool Kids is an opportunity for two youth councils of ten students each will spend two years advancing extreme heat resilience in the Escalante and Gilliland neighborhoods. Council members will work alongside researchers, city staff, local artists, social workers, and teachers to complete projects including communications and arts projects, cooling projects like food forests and native gardens, and guidelines for the city on how to invest in urban cooling.
Applications are open until May 28!
  • The Youth will lead the exact direction of the project. 
  • Applicants must be entering 8th – 11th grade. Youth are not required to be enrolled in high school. 
  • Council members will receive skills training, resume-building experience, access to resources, and leadership opportunities throughout the program.
