Strengthening After School Management

Click here to register now!

Meeting Description:

Weak financial management stops too many after-school and youth-serving nonprofits from winning grants, planning realistically, and doing all they can to fulfill their missions. Organizations with strong financial management are better able to fulfill their missions as well as plan and deliver high-quality services.

The Northeast Network of Statewide Afterschool Networks would like to invite you to attend a free webinar in partnership with Fiscal Management Associates (FMA), a leading financial management consultant for nonprofits, and The Wallace Foundation. This webinar is designed to help you learn how to build your organization’s fiscal strength and that of your provider network through a new, free suite of online resources at: StrongNonprofits.org.

You’ll hear from the creators of the website how to tailor it to your needs, and you’ll also get advice from a leading expanded learning non-profit organization.

Expanding Minds and Opportunities:
Leveraging the Power of Afterschool and Summer Learning for Student Success

(Live Stream for this session is now over at: http://www.expandinglearning.org/expandingminds)

The NJ Team — Mary Reece, Diane Genco, Melanie Schulz, Nyeema Watson and Ebony Grace —  attended the release of a new compendium on afterschool:  Expanding Minds and Opportunities: Leveraging the Power of Afterschool and Summer Learning for Student Success.  NJ’s own Susan Martz, NJ Department of Education, contributed an article to the book.

Governors, Mayors, Researchers, Funders In New Book Confirm Afterschool and Summer Programs Contribute to Education Success

 Washington, D.C. – A solid base of research and best practices shows that quality afterschool and summer learning programs make a positive difference for students, families, schools, and communities, according to a new book authored by more than 100 researchers, educators, community leaders, policy makers, and practitioners. The book offers specific examples from across the country of how this growing movement is turning “non-school hours” into “learning hours” to support children and youth.

The first-of-its-kind book, Expanding Minds and Opportunities: Leveraging the Power of Afterschool and Summer Learning for Student Success, demonstrates the role afterschool and summer learning play in improving and expanding students’ education, how communities with different demographics are building successful supports for their students, the role afterschool programs play in education reform, how these programs are helping students become more career and college ready and engaged in learning, and more.

“Afterschool and summer learning programs expand minds and opportunities for America’s kids,” said the book’s executive editor, Terry K. Peterson, Ph.D., at the book release event in Washington, D.C. today. “This book presents strong evidence that quality afterschool and expanded learning opportunities contribute to student success and should be moved from the margins of the education reform agenda to being one of the important tools and strategies leveraged to help more young people catch up, keep up, and get ahead.”

Expanding Minds and Opportunities provides a window into how educators, schools, and communities are working together to provide opportunities, develop solutions, and break down barriers to student success. “We hope that all those involved in education can use the research, best practices, and examples in this book to make their programs the best they can be to help more young people reach their maximum potential,” said Peterson.

The book may be ordered through Amazon.com and individual articles will be available for free download at http://www.expandinglearning.org/expandingminds.
