What Is Your Program’s Plan? Take This Quick Survey
 
 
With schools online for the remainder of the year and summer just a few short weeks away we realize that there are still many questions about summer programming.
 
We want to be your voice with the state as well as provide you with needed resources.
 
PLEASE answer this quick survey about your plans for summer 2020 so we can best support your work.
 
New App Created for Afterschool Professionals
 
 
You’re a champion for children. You know that afterschool and summer learning programs can change kids’ lives and help them reach their full potential. In this unprecedented time, it’s more important than ever to have ways to help youth continue learning, growing and exploring – wherever they are. 
 
In support of these efforts, the Mott Foundation has a new resource to share with you. As you may already know, the Mott Foundation is committed to the afterschool field, and has invested in it for decades to help expand quality afterschool opportunities for young people nationwide.
 
Mizzen by Mott is a new app built with and for afterschool professionals to provide high-quality, engaging learning content and tools to the field. To meet the needs of this moment, the Mizzen team has added new activity playlists and multi-week modules that can be done at home or in small-group settings.
 
You can find Mizzen by Mott in the App Store or on Google Play.

Arizona Quality Out-of-School Time Programs
 
 
There is widespread agreement that while out-of-school time programs can be strong tools for youth development, this is only the case when these programs are of high quality. Quality programs come in a variety of shapes and sizes. There is no one program, style, curriculum, or method that meets the needs of all youth. Rather, a quality program is one that is a living organism, growing and adapting to meet the needs of all youth. Learn about the Arizona Continuous Quality Improvement Process for out-of-school time programs on our website here.
