Join us for an exciting and informative session in the Out of School Time (OST) Community of Practice session, where we'll be delving into the details of the primary election outcomes and examining their implications for the OST sector. Discover ways in which you can make a difference and explore the various means by which funders can support the needs of their grantees.

Furthermore, we will be discussing the American Rescue Plan Act and the BOOST Act, and the ways in which they have increased access and funding for OST programs during the pandemic. We will also be examining the potential for these gains to be lost due to a lack of sustained funding, which could have a significant impact on the services provided as OST providers continue to address the education and social-emotional learning losses incurred during the pandemic.

This session will also offer an opportunity for peer sharing and updates, so be sure to bring along your own insights and updates to share with the community. With ample chances for engaging discussion and valuable networking, this is a session you won't want to miss!
