AzCASE is celebrating Afterschool Professionals Appreciation Week on April 19-23, 2021,
to recognize, appreciate and advocate for those who work with young people
during out-of-school hours.
We are joining this effort because we believe Afterschool Professionals make a profound difference in the lives of young people. We encourage you to join us in thanking the afterschool professionals in your programs.  The week is marked by celebrations and public relations efforts encouraging appreciation and support for all the afterschool professionals who make a profound difference in the lives of young people.  Afterschool professionals deserve appreciation for all that they do to enhance education, promote physical and emotional health, provide a safe environment and expose youth to new experiences. We are so grateful for you!
Here are some ideas on how you to show your appreciation:
  • Declare on social media: “I believe Afterschool professionals make a profound difference in the lives of young people. #heartofafterschool”
  • Sharing about Afterschool Professionals Appreciation Week in your communications (web site, eNewsletters, social media)
  • Hosting events honoring the success of your local afterschool professionals
