The impact of COVID-19 on our children has been huge. This summer, it is absolutely essential to use every tool possible to help students catch-up, re-connect and re-engage in learning again. We know that summer programming and afterschool engagement is essential to the recovery of our youth and we recognize this will take additional funding and support. 

Please take this brief survey to help the Idaho Out-of-School understand the need, interest and barriers that may exist to increasing, developing new or retaining summer programming in your community.

This survey will close on March 19th. Gift cards will be sent to the 25th, 50th, 75th, 100th, and 150th person to respond to the survey.


The Idaho Out-of-School Network (ION) is officially requesting proposals through March 19th for breakout sessions to be considered for the 2021 Power Up! Out-of-School Summit to be held at the Riverside Hotel in Boise on September 9th and 10th.

Sixty-minute breakout workshops offer a wide array of training for out-of-school providers to improve the practices and outcomes of their work. Breakout sessions will be offered in the afternoon on Thursday and both morning and afternoon on Friday.

Breakouts should tie in to one of the Idaho Building Blocks for Out-of-School Time Quality in some way. You can find a copy of the Quality guide at: Breakouts will be selected based on those most effectively addressing the conference mission of providing practical training for out-of-school providers. Breakouts should be clear, interactive and include strategies that participants will be able to implement immediately following the conference.

As a presenter, you will receive the following benefits:
-Great networking and connection with 100+ out-of-school program providers statewide
-Free registration to the full day and a half of the Summit -Travel arrangements can be made (hotel and flights arranged by ION staff and reimbursement for travel- gasoline costs after accrued) for those that need to travel for more than 60 miles.

Breakout proposals are due by Monday, March 19, 2021. All presenters will be notified by Monday, March 29, 2021.

Please contact the ION Quality and Professional Development Coordinator, Dianna McAllister, if you have any questions/concerns. Thank you for your interest. We look forward to reviewing your proposal!
