This Giving Tuesday, we’re giving thanks for the afterschool staff who have risen to the moment!

This holiday season, we are celebrating the people who make afterschool great! Join our gratitude campaign and thank afterschool staff who are making a difference in the lives of youth and families, or share the “why” driving your own commitment to afterschool.

Afterschool programs have the power to help young people forge bright futures, and realize their full potential – thanks to the staff who build strong and caring relationships, craft youth-centered programming, create opportunities that would not otherwise exist, and go the extra mile to support students and families.

Our gratitude is all the more important considering how afterschool staff have risen to the moment to meet the needs of students and families throughout the pandemic, even when it seemed impossible, from launching new virtual programming, to giving students a place to learn during remote schooling, to making sure families have the resources they need.
