High-quality summer and afterschool learning programs play an important role in the lives of our nation’s young people. In the wake of the pandemic, they have taken on even greater emphasis as a means for learning recovery and promoting well-being.

But how can district leaders and out-of-school time providers make sense of the various federal funding streams that can be used to support summer and afterschool learning? And how can they access multiple funding sources so that more young people benefit from high-quality out-of-school time experiences?

Join The Wallace Foundation on July 20 from 3:30-4:30 p.m. ET to learn about a new free resource developed by EducationCounsel, Using Federal Funds for Summer Learning and Afterschool. The webinar will feature a group of panelists to discuss their perspectives and experiences, including what it takes to build and sustain strategic partnerships that unlock multiple sources of funding and enhance summer and afterschool learning opportunities.

Speakers will include Shital Shah, Senior Advisor for Strategic Partnerships at the U.S. Department of Education; Sean Worley, author of the new resource and Policy Advisor at EducationCounsel; Every Hour Counts leaders – Barbara Couto Sipe, President and CEO of NextUp RVA and Nathan Beck, Coordinator, Madison Out of School Time; and perspectives from district and city leaders on funding summer learning and afterschool.
