During these unprecedented and challenging times, one of the things that give me hope is the way our field has stepped up to share resources and information critical to the kids and families we serve. Though most NJ afterschool programs are closed, afterschool professionals are innovating to support kids in new ways to help keep them engaged and learning, and to stay connected with young people during this difficult time.
The NJSACC Virtual Afterschool Resource Guide is a collection of activities and resources curated by NJSACC staff members. We hope it will be helpful to you! Topics include:
- Arts & Crafts
- COVID-19 / Health
- Games / Play / Fitness
- Project Based Learning
- Reading / Writing / Stories
- Social Emotional Learning (SEL)
- School Age Staff Training
- STEM/STEAM / Outdoors / Nature
- Virtual Training
We know we will get through this crisis together, and when we do, we will be ready. Youth will need critical and expanded support to emerge from this crisis strong, resilient, and hopeful – and we’ll be there to help them do so.
Be well and stay strong!
Diane Genco, Executive Director
