About the presenters
The presenters for this session work with the National Institute on Out-of-School Time (NIOST). For more than two decades, NIOST has been the national leader in providing highly interactive, research based training for directors and staff, school administrators, community leaders, and others committed to providing high quality afterschool programs for children and youth.
Ellen Clippinger, MS Ed is the founder and Chief Executive Officer of AYS, Inc., a not-for-profit youth-serving agency operating over 50 programs in a four-county area in the Indianapolis community. Ellen has been instrumental in piloting various types of programs to meet the needs of working parents-early childhood programs housed in school settings, wrap-around kindergarten programs within the school, as well as winter and spring breaks and summer camps. A summer camp devoted to arts education with a culminating final performance by the children and youth from the camp is now in its fourth season.
Susan O’Connor, MSW is an independent consultant, and has been working with the Davis Foundation to enhance afterschool programs in western Massachusetts. She is the coordinator for WestMOST Network, linking afterschool providers and western Massachusetts youth coalitions on advocacy to improve resources, quality, and sustainability of afterschool programs.

Susan was the Director of the Hampshire Educational Collaborative’s 21st Century Community Learning Centers in Northampton, Massachusetts. The Collaborative’s after school programs served 3,000 children and youth in 12 school-based community learning centers in a 3-county area. The resiliency research is the theoretical framework for the sites, and the mission is to build youth assets and provide learning supports. This includes major initiatives in linking to academic outcomes, social-emotional competence, and wellness.
Prior to working with the Collaborative, Susan was a Research Associate with the National Institute on Out-Of-School Time at Wellesley College for nine years, developing standards and continuous improvement tools for after school programs. She is an author of Advancing School-Age Child Care Quality (ASQ). She has also published papers on Resiliency and After School programs, Workforce Issues, Homework Assistance and Literacy Activities for after school programs.
