Reminder: Survey on Quality Standards

As part of our ongoing work to develop Quality Standards for afterschool programs here in New Jersey, we are conducting a series of surveys to review existing state and national Standards. The first survey will look at the Quality Self-Assessment developed by the New York Statewide Afterschool Network (NYSAN). These surveys are designed to help guide our work moving forward.

Ready By 21 -Building Broader Partnerships 101
Presented by the Forum for Youth Investment

Join us for a Webinar on Tuesday, November 30

3:00 PM- 4:00 PM ET

Partnerships and collaborations can take many forms. Whatever the scale of the partnership, effective partnerships are built on clear agreements about the scope of work to be done, the capacity needed to do the work and the mandate or authority in place to ensure that the work is done thoroughly and well. After years of working with a wide variety of partnerships at the state and local level, the Forum for Youth Investment has concluded that communities and states need to consider a few basic components of partnerships. Come learn more about this leadership capacity area and what you can do to build broader more effective partnerships.
